Everyday Art Challenges

The challenge from Everybody Art Challenges is "Friends and Family" and the DT have cope up with some really inspirational work which shows how diverse each person's interpretation of a theme can be.

I have used a beautiful image from Rubber Stampede 3942F. I was not sure if it would lend itself to UTEE treatment but decided to give it a go and am really pleased with the result. I used two coats of clear and a third of jade, orange and gold and stamped into it with stayzon black. I wanted to carry the gold without overshadowing the image so just used four corners cut from gold linen card using Cricut storybook. The corners look a bit baroque and the image art deco according to my daughter (a history teacher) !

Oh Brenda - this is so funny.

I remember him making his first appearance on Jem's blog and having a bit of banter about it with her.

I even showed it to my son at the weekend and he was assumed by it too.

Can't wait to show him what "long legged froggie" has been turned into now!!!.

Love Jules xx
