Sometimes it's REALLY nice to be involved with Challenge blogs that you both enjoy entering & that are 'home grown'....& ARTastic is both! An Aussie blog, which I've had the privilege of winning and Guest Designing for.....& I LOOOVE how the inspiration is always an art piece of one sort or another. So I'm absolutely THRILLED to be on their team!
Here is this month's inspiration picture:
And the EXTRA criteria? You must use STRING/TWINE.....of course, since it's about unwinding, tee-hee:)
I thought I'd do a little canvas for my scrap room:
I used a mix of ink sprays with my plastic doily [thanks once AGAIN Mitra!!!] But the colours got a bit 'muddied'...still, it made a nice base, so I 'sealed' it with a spray adhesive, then added some water & Gelatos, smudging them in & around 'til I got the colours & effect I wanted....more like the inspiration pic!
Much prettier!. Because the bg is so busy & the canvas only little, I didn't want to add much else.
Out came my Kreinik Threads - these ones have wire, so they're pliable AND glittery [win-win]...
the flair is an older Evalicious one...
& since I was [apparently!] going glittery, I pulled out some old Thickers - the DIY ones - & glittered them up as well!
...& since the CRITERIA is to use 'twine/string'....thought I'd add a bit of twine under the 2nd Evalicious flair I used:
Here's the whole canvas:
LOL! For my scrap room - a bit different, right? That's the great thing about ARTastic - you can enter scrap pages, cards - whatever, as long as you tell us how you were inspired!!!
Hope you can join in this month ~ happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
