Hi and welcome to a new month and that means a new challenge at A Vintage Journey. This time our lovely hostess, Nikki, choose the theme: Baby, You're a Firework. It is a tradition in some countries to have a huge firework display on many different holidays. I would like that in the US as it seems like a simply marvelous idea. Here is what Nikki challenged us to do: Fireworks are a big part of celebrations at this time of the year. Be inspired by them to create a Tim style project; think Distress Glitter, bold colours, ink and paint splats and fun. Go on, light up that night sky.
I decided to work in my journal again this time. It is becoming quite thick, that makes me happy because it means I have finally ended my procrastination. Here is how I interrupted the challenge.
I wasn't really sure where I was going when I started but ended up in a good place. I used Tim's On The Edge Die "Townscapes" for the buildings and then colored in the windows and doors. The fireworks are cut from glittery Fun Foam that I found at the dollar store, I used the splat from the Scribbles Die Set for that. The white stars are molding paste using a layering stencil. It is finished off with Holiday Words.
I started out with four pages that I had already applied gesso to. The top two pages are torn around the edges on all sides. Some scrapbook paper was added to the bottom two pages. Then a layer of Tissue Tape was added. Two shades of acrylic paint on the top pages, light and dark blue. The top pages were then glued to the bottom ones. I splattered on some watered down gesso to the top portion.
The finishing touches were red edging and lots of Stickles!!
Don't forget to stop on over to A Vintage Journey to see what the rest of the team made - I can guarantee you will be delighted.
Have creative weekend,
