Hope you are all good!
A quick post to share with you this recent make,
(actually I'm procrastinating......
I have so much to do but you know how it goes...the jobs can wait!)
I recently created some grungy backgrounds for another project.... this was one of the off cuts,
so instead of throwing it away I filed it under one of the very messy piles on my desk and knew it would come in handy!
I used gesso through some Tim holtz stencils, when dry I
coloured with distress paints and distress crayons.
To add some extra details, I hand stitched into the card and used my trusty sewing machine
to sew the edges to frame the card.
The photo is Idea-ology (photo booth) framed with an Idea-ology Baroque frame, which was coloured with black soot distress paint and a gold sharpie pen.
I hand stitched the quote in place and stamped stars and numbers
from the Tim Holtz (correspondence stamp set)
To finish I added a large (Idea-ology) arrow and layered it onto card
As I said earlier, this was an off-cut,
which may of easily been thrown away....
maybe you could create a save it pile and join me in the very messy desk brigade!
Right I really do need to get busy!
Feel free to leave a comment, always great to hear from you!
Have a great week
