These words were part of a small card which I had beside my bed as a child and have always been very special to me. I decided to incorporate them with some napkins on a small piece of wood. Do hop on over to my blog if you would like to see how I altered this really tatty wood block destined for the wood burner!
I loved Jennie's theme and decided to make a fold -out card with four panels, using some of my favourite quote stamps, paints, inks , stencils etc. I have a tutorial with many photos on my blog, so if you want to see more, just click HERE
Please take a leap of faith over to my blog to see lots of photos on just how I put this together!
For this project I selected some words I love and then created my design around them. I used PaperArtsy Fresco Acrylic chalk paints and Seth Apter stamps and dies. Be lovely to see you at Addicted to Art for more details.
I have created a mixed media piece by altering a little cardboard book for Jennie's fabulous challenge theme. I used alcohol inks, crackle paste, paints and scrap papers as well as die cuts, wire and Chit Chat stickers. To view the inside of the book please visit my blog by clicking HERE
Having returned from the trade show in the US with a brand new Distress Oxide pad in my mits the temptation to play proved overwhelming! First opportunity available and I was back in the craft room having fun, exploring the first of many possibilities. With the basis of a card made I really needed some special words to bring it all together and make the eventual recipient ponder perhaps. Not only did they add meaning to and otherwise random collection of images, the bold lines also added to balance the finished composition, providing a focal point; it's something I've found in the past - the right words in the right place can really finish off a project perfectly. Find out how this all came together and find out more about those delicious Distress Oxides on my blog.
I seem to be in a bit of a 'gold' mode at the moment and I guess I'm also looking forward to some warmer weather here in the northern hemisphere. I know I have only used one word on my canvas board, but it is a special word, you can find out why and see more photos and details over at Bumblebees and Butterflies if you have a moment to spare.
