Here is my Tim Holtz inspired piece for Country View Crafts.
I was inspired to use my doilies. One Die from TH collection, Sizzix Thinlits, and TH stamped doilies, Stampers Anonymous CMS254.
After gessoing my pages, I stamped some doily shapes, roughly using Paperartsy fresco paints in neutral tones. Afterwards I pressed some thick Matte Medium through a doily stencil and here it is before it dried clear.
After a little mica spray and ink splattering, I arranged my collection of ephemera onto my pages!!!!
This took me about 2 days to do before I was happy. Arrange, take a pic....arrange, take a pic.....over and over.
Finally, with everything glued into place I added my Big Chat word onto my dried leaf.
As I ponder over a story for these two characters, I wonder, are they Mother and daughter, friends, lovers?.... and what have they been up to? They look so pleased with their adventures together and look so happy together.
Light just shines from their eyes, which is what we all hope for.
Thanks for joining me on my blog and maybe I have inspired you to join in with our Tim Holtz Inspired Challenge at Country View Crafts.
