Blimey, I have missed you all!! I managed to get away for a week in the sunshine and even tho I had scheduled the Blog to post for me, it just isn't the same as doing it each day and reading all your lovely comments...which are, as ever, very gratefully received :O))
Thank you to all of you who supported the last challenge - and wow, so many gorgeous pieces of art to look at.
The winner of the Blog Candy giveaway has been chosen at random, using Random.org and the winner is:
Congrats hun, please email your addy to me and I will pop your goodies into the post :O))
Continuing with the Beatles songtitles, the theme this week is Tickets - however, you can also incorporate something to do with Journey's too, as I know not everyone will have tickets :O))
I altered a really cool board box frame that Andrea had given me as a pressie...it is about 10" with a centre of about 7" square. As usual, my photography is letting me down as you can't really see the texture on the frame...please feel free to use your imaginations!!!
I made a patchwork for the middle, blending Distress Inks and stamping with Tim Holtz collection stamps.
The frame was coloured with buff titanium paint and then had Cracklepaint added, blending Distress Inks and then spritzing Glimmer Mists to achieve an aged look. I added a few bits of Idea-ology, made a Grungepaper rose and decorated it with the new Artistic Stamper background stamps and then pinned a bit off an old earring to the top as a dangly bit!
To join in with the challenge, all you need to do is make a piece of art, incorporate the theme and some stamping and then leave me a post to where you are showing it ... then I can come and gaze adoringingly at your creation and be inspired to make more art myself :O))
Thanks for looking, have a great day.....
