It was a huge surprise while I was on holiday in Spain, to receive notification that I had been selected in the Top 3 of the CVC challenge for May.
It actually boosted my confidence and consequently, I agreed to enter a Guest Design piece.
I had recently acquired some beautiful stamps from the talented Emma Godfrey who designs for Paperartsy and the CVC theme being" Summertime", these stamps were ideal.
First, I glued to my journal page a page of summery words from a dictionary.
Next, I dripped some very bright paints from Lin Brown's latest collection of fresco paints. My drippage was probably successful because I added water to the paint.
I scribbled with bright Portfolio pastels and rubbed some of the colour away through a dotty stencil.
Next, I filled in the gaps with Emma's word stamps and also made my own washi tape using Emma's word stamps and made a criss cross pattern.
I added a bit of splattering to the white space.
Finally, I added a recent holiday photo of my Grandchildren and painted a couple of flowers!
Obviously, my bright colours and words from Emma's holiday themed stamps give a summery feel!

Thanks for looking!
