Awfully Big Art Adventure Week 6
This is my altered box file for the Awfully Big Art Adventure challenge week 6.
I had a great time doing this, It was more like a Scrapbooking page, and the fact that it was in my favourite colours helped too.
Started off with a plain box file, and added that lovely purple Dotty Paper from Bo Bunny. (This impressed Dottie she thought it was named after her !)
I added my photo, which Ive just been waiting for the right moment to use, I think its a lovely image. The hearts I punched out then used an emery board to sand off the edges and give them a worn look. A little vase of flowers with Lilac added flowersoft to give texture and of course the wonderful Grungeboard which I bought from Karen at Scrapz. Wow this is amazing stuff and I dont know how I didnt know about it before.
I added the words "Inspire me" on the side with the key to the lock.
Inside I used another piece of printed paper and then tried out a stamp I have had a while and never used, the peacock, I printed it on white card and then coloured it all by hand with paints, distress inks and stickles. I love it. I was sorry when it was finished I had such a good time.
Thank you to Linda and Rosie for the Inspiration for this fantastic project.
