COLOR MY WORLD.......

I am not a huge fan of drama.....
I JUST LOVE TO CREATE!!
and my creative world was placed on tilt
recently and it left me in a TOTAL creative panic!

So....when things like this happen...
YOU REGROUP
RE~EVALUATE
and BEGIN AGAIN!

That is just what I did yesterday....
I dusted off my stash of
Tattered Angels..
created a new color bible...
and began to play
having ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA
where I was headed
just reacquainting myself with 
how the products worked.


I began with a 6x6 stretched Canvas by Canvas Corp.
Pulled out a bit of
Tissuestock ~ Kraft
Printed Canvas ~ Black French Script
Printed Burlap ~ Tile
I collaged the textures randomly 
onto my canvas
using Ranger ~ Multi Medium.
Then I let the experimentation begin!!
I sprayed....
I painted....
I spritzed with water...
I used the Peacock Stencil by The Crafter's Workshop
with a bit of Golden Molding Paste
and Sprayed more...
until I achieved the background I was looking for.


I then pulled out the new Textured Elements by Petaloo ~ Ivory
which I proceeded to color
with Plain Jane Baseboard ~ Red Rocks
and accented it with 
Glam ~ Just Peachy
OHHHH THE LOVE!


See the Mini Pearl Daisy I accented with the Red Rocks??!??!
The were originally teal....just PERFECT!


Using Canvas Corp Handmade Paper....
I diecut Field Grasses from a piece of
Flocked Ivory Damask
and 
I diecut 2 ~ Leafy Flourish from 
Mistable Papers ~ Linen White.
I colored all of the diecuts
with various combinations of
Glimmer Mist:
Blarney
English Ivy
Kraft
to accent my newly colored Textured Element Flower...
and then I put it ALL TOGETHER
with my all time favorite Multi Medium by Ranger
with the following quote...

"If you find a path with no obstacles....
it probably doesn't lead anywhere"
Frank A. Clark

thank you for joining me as I 
continue on my path...
clearing this last obstacle!!
