Oh So Bright!

My project this month is all bright and colorful. I created this 8x8 canvas using Distress Spray Stains from Rangers, which were part of my Challenge 5 kit sent over by Artful Crafting

As I have mentioned before, working with bright colors / creating bright projects, is a real challenge for me so this theme was a pretty big deal. I messed up twice, before I finally got going. (I think the finished canvas looks pretty decent).

The project is very simple, I just sprayed the stains onto canvas , ensuring minimal overlap, and then left them to dry. Once dry, I added some texture using modeling paste and the Tim Holtz, Dot Fade, layered stencil.

For the center focus, I printed Erin Hanson's poem, "What if i fall", onto Prima Marketing's Epiphany paper collection, and tore it out. (It is such a beautiful poem!) The torn edges were inked with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink, and overlaid with rainbow colored wire, from a local book store.

White cardstock was sprayed with the three stains, (Shabby Shutter, Salty Ocean, Ripe Persimmon) and then stamped with butterflies using jet black Archival Ink. The butterflies were hand cut, and coated with glossy accents. Thatched Roof Cottage glimmer mist, by Tattered Angels, was sprayed to add some shimmer.  (have tried to capture it in the picture above)

And that's all folks!
