The story of wonderful you


The-story-of-wonderful-you

Hello friends! I'm the guest designer this month at These are a Few of My Favorite Things! :) And the first challenge this month is These are a Few of Your Favorite Quotes! :) I went with an inspirational piece of art to remind me to stay positive in 2011: The Story of Wonderful You. *wink*


Okay, this 8 X 10 piece of canvas definitely took more than an hour!  *LOL* 
Lots of masking, misting, stamping and inking on this! The bird is a DRS Design stamp. The rest are Unity Co stamps.


The stamp, the map paper, beads, green glitter and the key/lock charm are all from Gauche Alchemy. Ranger Crackle Paint in rock candy. Tattered Angels glimmer mist in gold. Maya mists in tangerine, turquoise and lemon. Glossy Accents. Ranger stickles in rock candy. Tattered Angels glimmer glaze in tide pool. American Crafts foam thickers. Claudine Hellmuth Gel Medium.


I used a Tim Holtz flourish mask and also punchinella to mask. The black large circles were stamped with big bubble wrap (fun stuff!). A little distress embossing powder and lots of stickers! :)

Come play along! :) The prize is a collection of Nikki Sivils papers! :)

**********************************************

A couple of reminders:

1. Guest blogger Mandy Dodd's Extending The Background challenge is ongoing.
3. You can nominate the next guest blogger with a chance to win a Gauche Alchemy Lady Marmelade Mixed Media Color Kit.

Another amazing project. I love it! I need to get me some of your gauche alchemy and try it out since it seems you always have the perfect pieces to add to a card or layout.
