Also, I've been watching 'An American in Paris' on tv with all that gorgeous Gershwin music - so think I've gone a bit romantic!
(I am writing this whilst the camera battery recharges so I can take the last pics and upload them....not to mention drink the cup of tea before it gets cold like the last one did!)
I took a large chipboard arch tag (I got mine from Paperartsy - it's about 5 by 7 inches at it's largest) painted it with Trad Tan paint, inked it with crushed olive and forest moss DI's then took a piece of paper (old letters) tore the edges and added that, distressed with some old paper DI,
before using Tim's flourish mask (wild honey) ferro paste in golden orange (bit bright, that....) tissue tape, grungeboard flourish covered in wild honey DI and orange distress stickles, some idea-ology with the chipped enamel technique applied. The portrait is a Hero stamp, under a Maya Road frame covered with 3 layers (gesso, gold viva paint and rock candy distress paint) stuck to a large Petaloo flower coloured with more DI's (bundled sage, crushed olive, forest moss). The 'dream is a wish stamp' is by Wendy stamped on a scrap, inked and sprayed and mounted with 3d foam.
I have lost count of the number of layers, but it's quite a few.... and I thnk I've just about run out of room, so guess that is the time to stop. Thanks SSSS and Studio L3, for two more FAB challenges. It's been a blast. Go check them out, they both have some incredible prizes on offer again.
