031515 Whimsical Musings Challenge #160
How I am enjoying seeing snippets of Lisa's February trip to NYC!
Inspiration #160 was based on this gorgeous Fifth Avenue shop window:
Serendipity again provided a start to my page.
Just the day before this posted I ran across this scrap of fabric.
Circles? Let's try this:
I loved the gold accents, so I punched some circles for accents out of gold metallic paper.
I chose a Heidi Swapp gold glitter sentiment & a Jolee's bling gold sequined bow (see final pic.)
I discovered that some punched white circles would disguise the blank spaces between the circles.
Later I added a few metallic gold large enamel dots to fill in those spaces.
Okay, so I got started...but something didn't look right.
I noticed a little detail in the inspiration.
The pattern in those circles are arranged to make a burst of color!
So I made a template from kraft paper & grabbed a few mists...
a bonus was the oversprayed paper underneath - four sheets of new custom paper.
They were a little less than subtle, especially next to the raw wood.
I used some white Distress Stain to tone it down & blend the color to soften the edges.
The final element from the inspiration was the feathery outfit so peacock pics are perfect.
I added a little gold paint pen to the edge of the paper to finish it off.
Have fun with this one!
