First of all I would like to wish you all a very happy, crafty and, most importantly, healthy new year !
Welcome to the first Challenge for 2015 ! It is Claudine's turn to host and her theme is "New Year's Resolutions". This is what she said:
"Most of us always create a new Years Resolution at the beginning of the new year. For 2015 try your hand at making something with your new years resolution in mind"
I have made a little Art Journal:
The pages were coloured with Brusho's. I thought it was too bright and painted some gesso over it. Much better.. I used Tim Holtz's Gothic stencil and white piment ink around the pages and didn't like the effect so I remembered buying some blue embossing powder from WOW and decided to pour that over it and heat emboss it. I really like the effect, especially because the bottom of the page has the same colour brusho. I used "French Journal Page" and "Bla bla bla" to stamp the background. I is very subtle. Next I stamped "Karin", coloured her and cut her out. I also stamped her on the page and then adhered the coloured one on top. I do not make New Years Resolutions, not because I am perfect like Karin but because I find that most of them only last 3 weeks....
I found this sentiment on the internet. I was in a speech bubble in a cartoon. I just printed it, cut it out and adhered it to the page. I think it is perfect for Karin !
Thanks for stopping by !
Hope you like it....
