you are loved….
today I am here to share with you a little project I created just for the sake of creating… and happen to be right on par with the CC3C (http://lindaledbetter NULL.com/2015/07/compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-33 NULL.html) challenge using Tim’s book (http://timholtz NULL.com/a-compendium-of-curiosities-volume-iii/); page 45 to be exact!!!
I had sent a message to my design team partners and asked them how they go about creating.. what is their process.. what do they do to get inspired…do you create for someone specific or a specific project or do you just create.
well I took all their answers in and decided that for this day I was just going to create.. holy though easier said then done.. it still took me a couple of days to ‘get it right’.
all I knew is I wanted to make something from my heart
so I stared with covering some letters using a thin layer of antique linen distress paint and sprayed them with water… dried and repeated until I was happy with the ‘backgrounds’
I then took the same custom blend stamp set I used for my butterfly, more on that in a bit, and hit the edges of the letters with it.. by far my favorite blend yet
I also knew I wanted to use my flowers I made using tim’s tiny tattered florals (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/product/660227/sizzix-thinlits-die-set-15pk-w-quilling-tool-tiny-tattered-florals) thinlit. they are so tiny and cute and boy I need practice using them but that I think is going to make them all unique right.
I also wanted to use the butterfly from the limititation (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/product/660189/sizzix-framelits-die-set-4pk-w-stamps-limitations)framelit set…it is my third set.. I have somehow managed to lose two already!! I stamped and die cut a butterfly from a tag, tissue and from packaging from one of my fade folders.. mind you the die wouldn’t but through the plastic..so I hand cut that one and heated it so it shaped around the canvas
hope you take time to create a piece inspired by love.. they truly are the best pieces right! if you are looking to purchase any of the lovely products i have used you can find them at Inspiration Emporium. (http://www NULL.inspirationemporium NULL.com/Tim-Time_c_883 NULL.html). they truly are one of the best on line places i have ever ordered from! if you are looking to create your own and wondering about my technique, check out A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3 (http://timholtz NULL.com/a-compendium-of-curiosities-volume-iii/), the latest book by Tim Holtz (http://www NULL.timholtz NULL.com/)
