i had made some backgrounds recently, spraying with various glimmer mists and some stencils (here: felt flower borders)
from my walk on monday i had brought some umbels and made some photographs with these on the backgrounds (more to come in a later post - when i will have more time...)
now when i read about the new crusade i thought i could perfectly use these backgrounds...
printed it out twice (about a-5-size).
on the first copy i started taking the umbel as a base to write... then i took a pink neocolor II and wrote some more text over the page.
stamped the circles (paperbag studios) and lines (gpp), then the insect image on vellum and fixed it on the page with staples and green masking tape (teared at both sides). i LOVE these masking tapes!!
added the faux postage pic and a cancellation stamp. an old text strip in light blue was glued on and edged with neocolor II. another neocolor II for edging the whole page - done!
again final edging of everything with neocolor II in according colors. seems i can´t live without them;)
which one do you like better??
are they really different?? seems it´s hard for me to step outside my comfort zone;)
anyway, thanks michelle for the challenge. might do more...
