embrace the past....Words & Painterly

Hello crafty friends....

I am dropping in to invite you to the brand new February challenge at Words & Painterly.
This month's color challenge is a bright fun palette of green, yellow, and orange....

'embrace the past'



Here is the challenge...


For more info about how to enter and the amazing prizes this month please go here...

Here are a few close ups...


I took the saying of this month's challenge 'embrace the past' literally and went looking for an old photograph of my past adventures. I found this one of me in 1997 visiting my best friend who had moved to New York City...
what a time we had together....


I had a few scraps of paper on my desk after creating a layout for Pion Design, and just thought a piece of the paper 'Alma's Sewing Room' here on my layout would give a great contrast to my modern looking photo...


I tucked in a couple of pieces of Blue Fern Studios chipboard that I painted black, and used some Lindy's Stamp Gang mists in Yellow Rose of Texas, Glory of the Seas Gold and Curiouser Chartreuse.


I hope you'll join us!

hugs, Lisa xo

  2. I'm enjoying your free style work on a white piece of cardstock. There's so many eye catching textures, elements and interest. That's a pretty girl in that photo.
