Hi everybody, another hot week has sizzled by and it's time for Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin - thanks girls! Summer of Colour is now over, but it was a fun time, so thanks to Kristin at Twinkle Twinkle, too!
I have repurposed another old canvas this week. I had to add some patches, as it was a bit torn, but that gives a bit more texture. I used a CWS stencil with some structure paste to add the squares and oblongs, and painted it with purple, turquoise, green and gold metallic paints. I added a layer of cheap glue along the bottom and poured on seed beads and some gold glass glitter. Then I added the 2 little paper houses and varnished them, before adding a few more embellishments in form of stars, dew drops and stickles. I like how it has turned out, and have it hanging on the wall above my desk.
For the challenge at Simon's Monday Blog I have made a journal page, 'celebrate'.
I painted and sprayed the background, stenciled the chevrons with a stencil cut for me by friend Diane, and added motives in white ink and the lovely die-cuts, also made by Diane- THANK YOU!!! I enjoyed making this journal page. I was not in a good mood to start with, but working on something happy seems to help!
Have a great weekend, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
