This I will enter my latest class project in two challenges, which I used as inspiration:
Heart2Heart Challenge: July Scrapbook Challenge Red & White daisy:
And mostly the
The CC3 challenge 5:
My final project without pictures:
My original idea for the class was to use a pre-painted Michaels canvas and do a patriotic theme. Then, I saw those challenges and ideas began to form. For the color scheme, I used the H2H challenge and for the techniques, Tim Holtz' CC3...
Distress Watercolering part 1
I used some TC modeling paste and her stripes stencil to give the background of the canvas some dimension and water-colored using TH technique with fire brick distressing ink from Ranger.
I stamped some fireworks and the sentiment (both from the July 2014 SOTM CTMH) using CTMH archival inks and watercolor papers. I used the watercoloring technique with blue distress marker (Ranger), wink of Stella ink, fire brick and mustard seeds distressing inks (Ranger). I love how the wink of Stella gives some shimmering effect to the fireworks and the sentiment:
I stamped some pinwheels using the pinwheels SOTM 2013 from CTMH in precut Cricut shapes out of white daisy (CTMH) card stock with the Artise cartridge and paired them with the shapes cut out of the Superhero paper (CTMH). I attached a magnet using rhinestones brads (Recollections) and liquid glass:
I used a very beautiful BoBunny patriotic paper, I bought a while ago in a local scrapbooking store, to frame all the elements and added some magnets to the back of the canvas using liquid glass:
To finish the look, I used some star rhinestones and sequins from Recollections and some cricut cut stars out of the Superhero paper.
My students were so glad with TH techniques and supported my entry to this challenge:
I gave them Cart Blanche to add more elements and this is one of their takes:
I used the pinwheels/ fireworks magnets to attach my pictures from 4th of July 2001, omg what a change, 20-40 pounds less each of us ;-)
I hope you enjoy my take to these fun challenges and give me some critiques...
Have a fun and blessed 4th of July!!!!
