Destination Inspiration - Arriving at Terminal 3

Hi everyone and welcome! Jenny here for your next stop on this month's Destination Inspiration adventure. Let's undo the travel bag again to remind ourselves what is in there.

Product: Lace
Technique: Texture Paste through a Stencil
Colour: Bubblegum Pink
Substrate: Canvas

Confession time - guess which bright spark suggested Bubblegum Pink as a colour and immediately regretted setting such a challenge (one which I must say my fellow Creative Guides, Alison and Jennie have tackled superbly!!!) Having taken a very deep breath I started down the path of creating a new canvas and here are the results;


I'm pretty sure you'll be wanting to know how this came together so I've put together a short Snapguide tutorial for you;


And to finish here are some close ups of the completed canvas;





So that's it for Terminal 3. Make sure you join us here next Monday for the next scheduled stop on this month's journey, and if you feel inspired by today's post don't forget to get those entries in for our current challenge 'Texture or Embossing Paste'.

For now take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx

  2. Ha, ha - I loved your confession!! And you did a smashing job on your own make here - LOVE that dinky butterfly, the stripes, the pink/orange combo - well, ok everything! And here is my confession: the only thing I every liked about Bubblegum was the comic strip (that came wrapped around it here in the states at least! Thanks for a wonderful make (including that great Snap step out)! xxx Lynn

  3. So many wonderful details! I'm afraid pink is my guilty pleasure and I love the background you've created - the white tones down the pink perfectly. The snap guide feature is fab Jenny and I shall look into that further. J S-W xxx

  7. No regrets necessary! Jenny this is a fabulous altered canvas making great use of your chosen bubblegum pink. The stripes stencil is not the easiest to work with gesso paste (imho) and you make it look so easy. Your arrangement of embellies is wonderful and I just love the the zipper pull! Thanks for the snapguide tute.

  22. Ah-ha, you are the bubblegum pink culprit! You have used the colour brilliantly here Jenny, love that gorgeous stripey background and the way you have echoed the painted stripes with the band of corrugated card, brilliant! A really lovely composition and inspired use of the contents of your travel bag, thanks so much for sharing it! Deb xo

  23. Spotted this briefly while I was away last week and wanted to see the details before commenting - I love it! That pink background really is fabulous ( not a natural pink person either!) and the layout gorgeous. Love the juxtaposition of the lace and corrugated card too xx
