So today is Wednesday (almost Thursday) and I have completed my project for Grungy Monday.This is good, so I can devote some time to an ongoing project.Otherwise when my home improvement project for the summer begins (bathroom remodel) I will not have as much play time as I must finish this project on schedule.(something else to blog about, maybe)
Anyway, this week the super cool Linda at Studio L3 has presented another Tim Holtz Technique Challenge.Where we get our shabby chic on and play along.CLICK HERE to see the challenge! CLICK HERE for Tim’s step by step instructions.
This week I wanted to try to make something bright and bold, and I need to practice this technique before making my final piece.What I got was the image below, which I like but, it said “Finish me later”.
So, started again, liked the flourishes, used gesso with black dabber, some lime green acrylic paint for the resist technique and then smudged the whole thing with turquoise acrylic.Oh, I used a makeup sponge (my new fav tool) to apply the paints.Lots of good messy fun.Made the rosettes and the airplane.Stamped and Prefect Pearled the words.Am I done, yes , and now it time to go to bed.
