ART **TCR #42**

Hello and welcome to my blog. It is Friday TGIF, and it is snowing like crazy here. I think we have gotten about 14 inches of snow in the past 2-3 days. So I am inside scrapping J This layout was done with this weeks palette #42 at The Color Room. The colors are beautiful this week and you get to “lift” another artists style. So I thought about it and figured I would try a style that is nothing like mine, something totally new for me and that would be challenging to me. I chose Finnabiar’s style to lift. Her works are truly pieces of art. You can see her work here.  So as it turns out, it was a challenge but so much fun, and I’ll tell hands are still stained hehe. The photo is a statue when I was on a wine tour.

I misted and inked and sprayed pretty much everything on this layout. I did some masking on the main paper and placed a few pieces then stitched to the bottom paper. I would have loved to have added some gears and steam punk stuff but I don’t have any in my stash and I think my DH would not appreciate me raiding his shop. So I went with what I have. Chippys, wool, flowers, feathers, wire, frame, tickets, lace, ruffles, some G45 steam punk paper, ribbon, gems and an earing.
This is a close up of the wings that are misted, inked, chalked, acrylic paint and smooched. I added the earing to the center. You can also see some of the masking, stamping, painting, and the wire and gems on the flower in this close up.
I used the G45 papers cut outs in the background. The title “art” is on the circle frame and I left it kinda plain hoping it would stick out.
That was definitely one fun layout to make, talk about get your hands right in there, mine are kinda the same color as the layout right now, nothing that a hot tub on a snowy day will not fix though. Thank you so much for stopping in for a peek. I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
