Wow we are already half way throught the Artisan Award Blog Hop! I know I certainly have been blown away by all the amazing projects that have been posted. If you have been following along you should have arrived here from the talented Laura Mellinger's blog, and if not there is a full list of all of the blog's at the end of this post. Thank you again for taking the time to visit us on this hop and we hope we have inspired you a little:) As I have mentioned earlier in the week, I really encourage those of you that are interested in entering Artisan to really go for it this year and enter! It has been an amazing experience so far and I can not wait to see what the rest of this year has to offer.
Today I decided to share one of my 3 D projects. Now those of you that know me know that I tend to procrastinate, so when I confess that this next project was done the night before I shipped my package off you may not be surprised:) I do work best under pressure and although I had this idea for this project weeks before completing it, it did not come together until the 11th hour!
Here is the picture I used:
I do apologize for this quality and location of this photo, but to be honest it was taken at the UPS store before I packaged everthing up and sent it on it's way! Again there is LOTS of sponging and destressing on this project. It is also a hybrid project , meaning I combined My Digital Studio with trational paper crafting. I altered my photo in MDS using several of the Vintage Overlays and then typed the words "You're Amazing" over top. I actually used the colour picking tool in MDS and took the colour from my daughter's hair for the words. All the edges of the canvas were sponged with Soft Suede Ink and on the bottom left corner I stencil one of the imagaes from the Elegant Trio Stencils using Blushing Bride Ink.
Here are a few close ups of the project:
The photo was mounted on a piece of Presto Patterns Designer Series Paper that had been sponged with Soft Suede and Blushing Bride Inks as well as spritzed with Smooth Spritz Spray in Vanilla Shimmer. I also stenciled the Flower image again using Peach Parfait on the DSP. A lot of times people will ask me wher my inspiration comes from and to be honest for this project I kept hearing the Lyrics from the Bruno Mars song "Just the way You Are".
