123 Challenge re-launch!!

Happy to announce the re-launch of 123 Challenge this month. Karlene and Charmane have asked me to stay on the Creative Team, which I was more than happy to do. Thanks girls.

A change in format….still three criteria:
A WORD
A COLOUR
A TECHNIQUE
can be submitted in any format…yipeee!!

June’s criteria are:
NEW
WHITE
PAINT SMEARING
and I decided to do an art journal page (surprise, surprise). It’s approximately A5 size.

Here’s an example of the type of paint smearing I began with….

then with masking tape, I made a stip pattern one way and painted with gesso, then wiped off the excess and put the tape the other way, painted again, wiped excess….

I embossed the chip frame with white embossing powder…twice LOL….

made myself a wee blossom with tulle and a gorge K&Co brad….

before all the elements went on, I glued some plain napkin with gel medium and made it nice and textured. There’s a tiny rubover of light blue pastel…

Well, I hope everyone will enjoy the new format as much as I will!!
Go to the blog at 123 Challenge to look at the other CT members’ gorgeous inspiration.
