Hello again blog land! I cannot believe Monday is almost over already and I have not shared with you this week's Craft Your Passion challenge yet! This week's task is "All that Glitters" so take out your favorite stickles and (gasp) powdered glitters and get sparkly with it!
I chose to make an altered canvas ala Donna Downey who recently taught a mixed media class at Scrap-A-Doodle Doo and totally jump started my slacking mojo! On this one I stamped on the four tags in the background, then gessoed over them and added modeling paste...Then I added some silver and teal acrylic paint as accents. Then I glittered up the Tim Holtz gems with Glossy Accents and powder glitter in silver, blue and pink (gasp... I HATE dry glitter. It gets everywhere... it IS everywhere, still!) :). So I reverted to stickles for the Prima embellishment in the upper left hand corner and on the fairy's wings. But I still used dry glitter on the roses... OH and I stickled all the pink words in the phrase with Pink Lemonade stickles. THEN I used bubble wrap to stamp on the final pink, teal and black paint before I added the rosette ribbon on the bottom. Phew. That list makes it sound so easy peasy, but it took me like four days to make! :) I can't lie though... I'm in love with the way this one turned out...Molly Fairy printed at 6", colored in with copics and stardust stickles. But since I had the "Angels" theme going on with the sentiment from Psalm 91:11, I chose to hide her fairy wand and replace it with a bunch of white roses dipped in pink glitter.
I'm submitting this one to Word Art Wednesday, The Cheerful Stamp Pad (Anything but a card), Daisy Doodles' Anything Goes, Love to Create (Glitter), Melonheadz Friends (child), Glitter and Sparkle (anything but a card), Ooh La la (sparkle and shine), and The Crazy Challenge (Pink and Gems).
Thanks so much for stopping by...Hope you have a wonderful week! :)
