We had two days cooler weather this week, but it is scorching again, with warm winds from the south heating us up. I don't mind it being hot outside, but I would like to have my apartment a few degrees cooler - sigh!
But, come rain or shine, it is time for Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always by Eva and kristin.
I have re-purposed another 8x8" canvas this week, adding texture with moulding paste and CWS stencils, and having fun with colours and Stickles. The lady and flowers have been printed onto transparent paper, fussy cut, and glued on. I did another layer of flowers at the beginning, but painted over it, which gave a nice texture. The little words have been cut from an ancient book and placed on the rectangles.
The wooden and wire embellishment has been flying around in my stash for ages, and has found a home at last.
The collaged journal page is another result of the hot nights and ensuing sleeplessness! The background has been printed, and then painted with gesso, before doing some stamping and stenciling.
I have used various images from my bit box, and combined them with text and part of a serviette. The floral clock is from a Gecko Galz image sheet, the other clocks from one of my photos printed onto transparent paper.
I made a 'rusty' tag as background for the sentiment.
The little girl, clock and butterfly have been crackled and distressed.
(Sounds like my face, but by me it just happened!)
I am also linking the journal page to addicted to stamps and more, anything goes
I did an enormous amount of collage this week, less sleep means more crafty time!
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
