Then....over at PAGE MAPS I followed this sketch:
I sorta got a bit carried away with the bg...which was originally a green...then I'd whacked some white stenciled flowers on...then I didn't like that so covered the lot in black gesso, which then seemed a bit BLACK....[duh!]..so then I sanded it all back a bit & added some white gesso, some heat embossed orange with a stamp.....you know how it goes.....*WINKS*****
As with all my work, things seem to be over rather than undersized! Created the # with my Silly machine then smooched it up....the camera came with some goodies I got from Sandi T [thank you!]...the flair is a VERY old one...using up stuff makes me feel GOOOOD!!!!!!!!!
Dunno where the hand came from...but it's dated now!!! This is an old photo of DH in his Golfing Hey Day:
I used a cut up PL card to do the journaling on....& if you're a winner, you're deffo this:
Mary B might not see it, but behind this photo is a Parisienne Bag she gave me, with more photos from this event - they're BIG photos, so hard to find a bag for them!
And finally. Yeah, I know, I know...I gotta learn NOT to take so many closeups...that was going to be my 'thing' this year. Aaah well---maybe in 205!!! The whole page:)
But, really, you wanna see a closie of that crown, I just KNOW you do...chippy...not sure where from? Gesso'd up:
And just in case you missed it - I did do some machine sewing on this one, too...& the 'honk' & 'beep' shapes have also been fussy cut from a PL card [handy li'l blighters]...
And you lot really ARE the best for making it to the end of this post!!!
I DO hope to see you over at our Off The Rails 'meet & greet' with Lawn Fawn...should be fun!
