...holy crap, can you believe it? I'm posting in the middle of the week....
I know, me neither.
So, I can't even remember what Grungy Monday we're on, to be honest. I guess if you came from there, you will know. If not, click HERE to go there. Ok, I did in order to do the link, and it's number 5. lol.
The challenge...a new dimension, is taken from a technique challenge on Tim's blog HERE.
It also happens that the Everything Wendy Vecchi Making Art! Challenge #11 is to use a ticket, and as luck would have it, my brain cooperated in order that I might combine the two. That's becoming more of a rarity these days. Trust me. Please don't tell me it gets worse, I don't want to hear it.
I decided to go with a travel theme, one of my favorite themes to work with...'cause.....I like to travel. And I don't do it much right now. lol
So, I used an old map for the background...duh......the key and the little state of Illinois came from my friend Nancy, who has the coolest stuff to use for assemblage and collage. And a fellow thrift store junkie. lol.
The big ticket is one of my favorite Wendy stamps, as is the car, which is on one of the NEW Art Parts, woohoo... and the belt and the sentiment in the upper right.
And I'm sure you recognize the compass as being a salvage sticker, mounted on grungeboard.
My niches were a little messy, guess I need a sharper craft knife. Thankfully the paper covered up most of it.
So, now that I have this done, I'm wondering what to do with it. It's about 5 x 7, so I guess I could put it in a frame. Dunno.
Ok, so then...I forgot to post my Making Art! Challenge piece from the previous week. The theme was stitching around the edges AND use a butterfly from PATTERNED PAPER. So, I used some Webster's Pages paper, which had a beautiful butterfly on it. A little sentiment and some lace, and ...ta da......
Guess that's all I have for right now. Thanks for sticking with me, even though I haven't been around much. I'll have to try harder, that's all!Now....let's GO BE CREATIVE!
