Well the day has arrived; the last of the Technicolour Trio and Tempting Treats. Challenges with my special friends, Lisa and Mitra.
It has been a wonderful 6weeks of creating and interpreting the complex and sometimes obscure challenges. The process for me has been so enjoyable, it leaves me feeling centred and connected. The next step is to remove the blocks of forcing things and becoming to outcome focused. This is not easy for me.
So for this final Challenge the requirements are:
Week #5-Project F.
#1- Altered Box or ATB.
#3- Game pieces#4- Seasonal display- Pick a season you like.
My favourite season is Christmas, so I chose the G45-12 Days of Christmas paper to decorate my box.
I painted up the box in iridescent Gold and edged in Bronze.
Gathered the selection of papers and elements, making some Tags and punching some borders.
Printed a Fairy onto Tissue paper for the Wings requirement, even though there is a bird on the paper.
Covered the sides of the Box and attached the Fairy and added rub-ons, red pearls and glitter.
Now for the fun part.
Painting up the Tim Holtz Poinsettia Die and the puzzle pieces with a mix of Gold and bronze paints, then stamping a text in Archival Ink on top.
I then dry embossed and added a Vintage Brad to complete the flower.
All that was left was to start layering up to finish off my design.
I also painted up the metal cross.
If you click on the pics you will notice prima flowers, bling, burlap, washi tape, lace and rub-ons.
And there you have it, the last creation for this year in conjunction with Lisa and Mitra.
A miscellany of unrelated items combined to make a festive representation of Christmas.
I just want to finish off by thanking my two buddies in participating so creatively in these Challenges, I think I can honestly say they have pushed me to navigate through the mish mash of requirements and achieve good results, the process has enabled me to leap frog over the obstacles of creating.
