Well, Tina suggested that we´d make a little challenge based on this piece, so we did. The five of us (Sue, Tina, Susan, Melissa and me) took this canvas as a starting point and did our versions of it. This is what I came up with:
Can you see those little “chrystals” hanging down from the canvas. I´ve had them for AGES, but never found a good place for them and while choosing the colours (Fresco Paints by PaperArtsy) for the background, it came to me that they would perfectly fit in here. So I drilled 3 holes onto the canvas and used a piece of wire to adhere the chrystals onto the canvas.
Other than that I have used very similar techniques as on my original canvas – more about those here. The chipboard pieces are by Wycinanka scrap & decou and I´ve colored them in with a water tank paint brush and Distress Inks. The flowers are from Prima (one of the Finnabair collections) and I´ve brushed some matte raspberry Ayeeda Paint with a very dry paint brush over them.
The “bloom” sentiment is hand written with one of my new favorite pens, the Wink of Stella Brush silver pen. I love the subtle shine you can create with this pen.
So now it´s time to take a look at what the other girls have created!! Please keep on hopping over to their blogs and take a look at their lovely creations – you won´t regret it!!! And do leave comments while visiting the blogs, we all love reading them :).
Have fun and hope you get inspired to create 🙂 !!!
