Good morning! I am back today with a cool challenge from Simon Says Stamp and Show: By the Numbers. The possibilities for this challenge are endless :) I choose a list from our social media world.....I found this list of 7 Life Rules posted on Facebook :)
My goal for this project was to be "free" in my creating....so I decided I wanted to finger paint as much of the project as possible :)
I pulled out my Dylusions art journal and covered the pages with my Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap. This provided a perfect background to guide my colouring. I played with my Faber-Castell Gelatos....love how they blend and move so easily with just your fingers. You can also do so with water if you choose :)
I added a few more layers of finger painting with Gesso and Pan Pastels.
More "free" finger painting to make the circles....this would not have been me a couple of months ago LOL!! For the title letters, I did not have a stamp that was the right size, so I traced around chip board letters....I just couldn't do that free hand LOL! baby steps remember :)
A few close-ups to show some final layers and details :)
I used an old hotel key card to get those lines and a mini mister cap for the circles.
....and because I always seem to need a little bit of "pretty" messy in my work, I added a scallop edge around the circles :)
Thanks so much for visiting today! You can find some awesome inspiration from the rest of the Simon Says Stamp and Show DT HERE. I would love to see your take on this challenge!
One lucky participant will win a $50 dollar store voucher from the awesome Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!!
