I have not been a very busy bee lately. To say the least. I have been plagued with migraines pretty mcuh for the entire month. Can you say frustrated~~~ ahhhhhh!! Ya to say the least, frustrated. when I am in other pain I can still find it in me to create something. When I have a migraine I can only find my bed and curl up in fetal position and pray it goes away. I certainly am not productive in a pain brain situation......... well I finally had a bit of relief yesterday and created a wall hanging for a pal in Australia. I have sent it off and pray it gets there before Christmas gets here~~ I could not believe the cost of shipping a package via air mail.....Canada post wanted about $65.00 to send my package airmail. Am I cheap to send it for upwards of $ 26 for the surface mail???? I don't think so and if I wanted it to be even faster it would have cost $95!!!! Well shipping things has become quite an expensive proposition however it IS going to be shipped. It will take a wee bit longer to get there but it WILL make it there.
So here is my magical wall hanging. I had a lot of fun with of all things.... box board...aka cardboard. Love doing the recycling thing. It makes for a great base to create on. I added some paint and some more paint and then did a collage thing to bring it to life. I used some of my new Goosebumps with shimmer Texture Spray by Tsukineko. Love it. A nice sparkle in the shine of the spray adds a little more bang for your buck! I used a Unity stamp for the flower under Dream and added some flowers from prima and some I coloured which I got from wild orchid crafts. I made the pink and blue flowers myself from coffee filters I sprayed with some glimmer mists then cut out using Tim Holtz Sizzix die tattered florals. Love that die!
A labour of love. I had a great time doing this. I lost all track of time and was inspired constantly. I love it when I work on a project and it flows out of me. I know when I don't think and plan I tend to do better work. It comes out as intended. Too much thought about my art and I don't mix well!! I just let it flow out of me if I can!
Thanks for looking and taking the time to come to my wee blog. I am very thankful you have taken the time to stop by and to look at my art and share in my passion.
I have finally finished my project that I began at the Canadian Scrapbookers Carnival in Christy Riopel's class. I will post it soon. Also have some a Halloween cards I made for my nieces and nephew but I am not going to post them until I know they have them in their hot little hands......I sent them a wee bit late and it does take time when mailing from one side of Canada to the other!
Take care all. Happy Thursday!!!
