Isn't January a long month! Always a bit of had Christmas, long time 'till summer feeling about so it's a perfect time to join us over at Aud Sentiment Challenge Blog for a fabulous Anything Goes challenge and let your creativity run a muck!
Our delicious sponsor this time is Sassy Studio Designs and the image I got to play with is the gorgeous Latte Momma Sassy and here's the design I came up with...
Purple is not one of my fav colours so I challenged myself with this one to use purple tones and come out of my comfort zone...not 100% sure on it now its finished but the children assure me it looks ace so here it is lol :D
Here's what I used:
Image: Latte Momma Sassy by Sassy Studio Designs
Colour and image backing: Coloured with Graph'it Marker pens: hair tones 2105, 2120, 2140, 2160, 3160; Clothes: 9400, 9402, 9404, 6110, 6120, 6140, 6180
300gsm super smooth card from That Craft Place
Backing: papers from my stash...can't remember where as I'm still trying to use up the pile I have of bits and bobs! Cosmic shimmer mica spray was used around the image (from That Craft Place)
Embellies: purple burlap - a find in the Pound Shop!, lace from stash, Flowers, wooden owls and pearls are all from my stash but check out embellies at That Craft Place especially MDF pieces!
Sentiment: Create with TLC .... TOP TIP if you haven't checked this one out yet you really must! Paulette is so generous with her free sentiments and has fab designs too xx
No special tricks this time...matting and layering of papers and burlap is how I created this piece, placing the image to the side gives room for a whole host of flowers and bits and pieces. I love using old brads (oh TOP TIP! see I have got one! I use old brads that I don't use any more..they seem to have gone out of fashion, by cutting the prongs off the back and then hot glueing them just as you would any flat back embellishment! a whole new set of embellies to play with now lol). Around the image I used cosmic shimmer spray in a tonal colour and I applied it by spraying it on my glass mat and then dabbing it on the image with an almost dry scrunched up baby wipe!
The insert is matching paper and that's about that.
Here's the close ups:
