Think and Wonder


Greetings!  In my quest to join in on challenges beyond my various Design Team responsibilities, I am submitting the canvas above for three Challenges, two of which are about to close!  The first is for the challenge over at Simon Says Monday Challenge where the challenge is to create something using something you love.  I chose to create my canvas using this focal image that I love from Artistic Outpost.  The second challenge is over at Our Creative Corner where the challenge is to create a project using Blue, Brown and Purple with no Black, hence my chosen color pallete. And finally, as all the images and sentiments I have used  are from Artistic Outpost, I am entering my canvas in the Artistic Outpost February Referral Program.  I began with a blank canvas, spritzed it with water and then applied Distress Paint in Dusty Concord, Gathered Twigs, Chipped Sapphire, Vintage Photo, Broken China, Antique Linen and Seedless Preserves.  Next I stamped the focal image by Think and Wonder with Timber Brown StazOn Ink onto tissue paper and adhered it with Glue & Seal.  Other images from Generation Redux and Polaroid Cutie were stamped around the edges of the canvas. White Embossing Paste, by Dreamworks, was tinted with Chipped Sapphire Distress Paint and stenciled through several Tim Holtz Stencils. The sentiments, from Think and Wonder, were stamped onto scrap card stock, distressed with Vintage Photo and Broken China Distress Ink, trimmed and adhered to the canvas.  Some paper string in brown, by Ideaology was twirled into circles and adhered, completing my canvas. Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Hugs, Yvonne

Thanks for that list of colours Yvonne. I was really interested to know which ones you'd chosen to get such a vibrant yet grungy feel. Love the way that your gorgeous background has given this image such a different feel. Thanks so much for joining us at Our Creative Corner. Jenny x
