posting the challenge a little bit earlier today as i am off to CHA (a big trade show for scrapbooking and other artsy fun stuff...can't wait to catch up with friends and see cool new product!)...next sunday will be interesting as i will be teaching in paris...but i REALLY want to try and make/post my card there - how cool will that be?!! but it will depend on internet access!
i just love feeling your excitement and passion for creating this simple piece of yourself every week, i love sharing in that with you - from all over the world! isn't it amazing the connections we can make with one another through our hobby?
i can't wait to see what you do this week...i may not have a lot of time to comment, but please share your links as i know so many people are enjoying looking through all the links and getting inspired by each other!
i have a 'thing' for peace signs. they just make me so happy to look at and are such a symbol of goodness and oneness.
this week's prompt is: a symbol you love. maybe you have something that is 'you', or that you are always drawn to, or even something from your childhood or past. think about a symbol that has significance to you...and incorporate it somehow!
this 'peeled paint' technique is so much fun to do - here is how if you want to try it...
1. paint your card with gesso and a layer or acrylic (you can skip the gesso if you sand the card instead.
2. fingerpaint blobs of vaseline/petroleum jelly onto the dried paint. gently paint another colour over the top. when the paint is dry, wipe with a paper towel and the vaseline slides away, revealing the base colour. use a wet wipe if you have any extra greasiness that need to be gone!
have a wonderful week and happy creating!
