Memories of Summer Reminder


So this is my last time to play with the ladies at Quirky Crafts Challenges.  I love the challenge of themes and images and being asked to come up with a project.  It really gets the creative juices flowing.  If you are this way as well, let Cazzy know over at Quirky!  She is always looking for guest designers and may even ask you to join the team! 

Bugaboo provided me with two more images to play with this week: Girls Craft On and the quote that goes with it.  I personalised her a bit to make her look like me, then fussy cut her out.  I used markers and Zig Wink of Stella brushes to add life to her. 

A while back I created this background in my art journal at a class.  I added a couple things, then wasn't sure how to complete it.  This theme and image was just the thing!  The background is layers of gesso & dimensional medium through stencils.  Once dried I rubbed on ink and gold Inka Gold then stamped on some script with permanent ink.  I had gone back with green dimensional medium and a happy stencil and let that dry.  I love incorporating fabric and this sheer piece didn't have a home, so it got applies along with the flower to anchor it. 

Now I was able to adhere my Craft Girl (with a little longer hair and glasses added by me) to the flap with the fabric.  The quote was printed out, die cut with Spellbinders Lables 8, then sprayed with Tattered Angels spray.  I matted it on red watermelon printed paper and added a cut out CRAFT word also sprayed with different Tattered Angels spray.  All that was needed was to use ink markers to write the title of Summer 2014 .....
and open the flap to add my summer memories...
