I chose the sweet Rose image by Angie Davis of Squigglefly.
After printing and coloring I cut the Roses into 3 1 1/4" squares Everything
has been distressed by sanding and direct to paper stamping. That
is why I chose the sentiment 'tattered roses'. The coloring is done
with colored pencil. My embellishments are 3 pink paper roses that
I darkened with the same ink that I used in distressing. I also
added a bit of gold floss.
We were given a background and a girl to
spark are imagination.
Which I think is sorely lacking in this piece that I made.
I cropped the girl from her background and placed her
on the larger background provided. I added the word girl
in colors to match. My last step was to give parts of the girl
a touch of blue with colored pencil. Oh, before printing I added
a water filter for added distress. The flower and bead are
really a soft blue gray to match, not the plain gray that
is shown here. That darn scanner!
As for summer in January....well not here in Murrells Inlet.
It is rainy and blustery. Has been since the wee hours
of the morning.
