I sit here in my studio....enjoying the silence with a bit of sadness....for today my kids go back to school signaling the end of summer, my daughter a senior and my son a freshman. I love the fall season that approaches but am also saddened by the thought of closing up the windows and doors and layering on the clothes.......as the winter months will inevitably set in! but for now I listen to the sounds of nature...smile at the fun had at my chillins Back to School bonfire and think of WHAT TO CREATE NEXT!!
This week over at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog.......it's all about LAYERS!! which I truly do love...just not in clothes! And layer I did.......
So, I got on an ATC kick one day and I'm not even in a swap or anything (silly me) but I was in a layering frenzy. Gesso on chipboard, then stamped then Stickled, wrapped with Tissue Tape, layered the BEAUTIFUL Ornate Plates over top a stamped saying.
I then set about to making my layered flowers by coloring White Flowers with Distress Reinker Mixtures and diecut fabric flowers colored in the same fashion. I then attached the ATC to a chipboard cover with was layered with ink, Tissue Tape and Distress Stickles. I bound the bundle of goodness together using my TRUSTY Bind it All!! When it was all done....I added Princesca Hardware to accent the piece!!
Thanks for stoppin' by....do check out the other Design Teamies work...it will def knock your socks off!!!
