This Thursday , Challenge 18


Well we've a new challenge at this thursday. Surprise surprise. Same as every thursday LOL

Well this weeks challenge is entitled Art from your heart.

We want you to create something inspired by someone or something you love, or create something with techniques that you love. You can use your fav poem or music. Make something for or about someone you love, or as per usual just let the title inspire you. Whatever floats your boat.

This week I have three examples and I am going to keep my fav till last.

I used a clear button and stamped on the back of it with stazon to create a patterned button . I love these orange flowers which i got by taking apart some flowers from the pound shop This card also uses the Navel Jelly photocorners and Purple gems suplied by this weeks brilliant sponsor as part of the design kit and part of this weeks prize . Our sponsor is 3 D Jean .
This card was created using the stamp supplied as part of the prize. I a stamped it and then went over some of the areas with Sakura clear glitter gell pen, In real life this looks like a silver frame . I spritzed my card with terracotta mist, The blue is paper is a peice of greaseproof paper spritzed with aqua and blue glimmer mists ( It looks fantastic in real life) Then I used the navel Jelly heart and some of the gems again
This is my most favorite. It uses the most loved photo I have ever taken. Its of my grandson Jake. I have used it before to create a digi lo , but wanted to create a paper lo as well. So I used Prima paintables which I carefully paint splattered very lightly with pale green watercolour Then watercoloured coloured all the areas. Then positioned my photo lightly drew round it with pencil. Then painted the border. Then adhered the photo . Then I painted the corners with watercolour as well . I added gems to the butterfly body, the middle of the heart in the corners and the flower centers. I highlighted the veins in the butterfly wings with sakura clear glitter pen

So thats it for this week

However you must pop to Susies , Barbaras or my blog on Sunday to see what anouncements we have about next weeks challenge.
