Quotes & Lyrics - Hurt & Travel
This fortnight's words for the Craft Barn's Q&L Challenge are knowledge and hurt. I decided to use this quote because although hurt tends to be a negative word this quote is quite positive. I made a background with some stamping paint, mists and stencils. I used my new Tim Holtz courtyard frameworks die and added some white dots to highlight it. The chipboard letters were stamped with a background stamp and added in a curve.
I'm sorry I have not been able to look at and comment on everyone's entries for a few weeks but I do hope things will improve this week.
I have managed to get up-to-date with this challenge at last. The word choices were flower and travel and I could have chosen either but for some reason Sweet Dreams by The Eurythmics stuck in my head. I love to travel and the lyrics seemed appropriate for me. The background is broken china and peeled paint DI (to represent land and sea) smooshed onto a sheet of acetate and spritzed with gold shimmer spray. I did each colour separately and dried in between to prevent the colours becoming muddy. The lady image is by Hampton Arts and the world sights are by Katzelkraft. The lettering was done with an old-fashioned alphabet stencil and then I added dots to the letters.
