We have just had the last class with one of our tutors at college this week as from now on its a different tutor. So as a thank you and goodbye from the class I covered this A5 size notebook. She had been admiring one I was using for myself so know she likes this kind of thing. Her name is Carol-Anne, hence the C A on the notebook.
We are running a challenge on my forum.. LindaB started by challenging Donna and now Donna has challenged me. My challenge was to make something only in cream and white and incorporate lace. I like Strong colour so I expect that's why Donna chose this for me. Here is my attempt.
And as this Piece was an ethereal looking Angel in her little heaven I thought it would also do for the theme Thursday "celestial" theme.
Childhood is the theme for the monthly Tag swap on my forum and for Mixed Media Monday .. so this is my effort. I used Shimmering mist sprays in cranberry, gold and lilac for the background and allowed some of it to form in to little puddles.... heated with a heat gun till it bubbled and dried to create a nice textured feel to it.
Just this Thursday when I was at college a friend handed me a bundle of ribbon scraps and broken jewellery and it was full of colour and vibrancy.. I couldn't wait to use some of it so this theme was just ideal. I have started using a lot of trimming , ribbons and beads on my work recently . Both the ribbon and the metal charm decoration on this piece were given to me by my college friend Jo. (thank you Jo x )
