A Red Rose, Red Wine, and a Redhead
Well, February is almost over and at least here in NE PA it has been a warm record breaking month-yippee!! It should be like this every year I say.
All last week it was in the 70's F and I certainly took advantage of it! One of two early evenings was spent this way:
T Stands For Tuesday peeps!
For Tag Tuesday I have created a tag for the theme of "Spring Flowers". It started like this:
I used Dreamweaver Embossing Paste through the Tim Holtz Lace stencil.
The finished tag:
The tag was spritzed with Dylusions Bubble Gum ink spray and Distress Spray Stain in Fossilized Amber. I added a bit of gold rub-on with my finger. Finished tag with a vintage image, ribbon, Paris charm, rhinestone, turquoise metal roses and fibers. These items have been in my stash quite awhile and I don't think they are available any longer.
And alas, my position as host at Art Journal Journey this month for the "Fifty Shades of Red" theme is about over so I have one more project to add.:
I had done a similar redhead for one of the Summer Of Color Challenges and decided to paint her again. Here's a closeup of the hair:
Also linking to Moo Mania and More (theme is hand painted) and Paint Party Friday.
I want to thank Susi, and ALL (over 140 entries) of the glorious red entries this month at AJJ! The art is truly amazing and uplifting!! Looking forward to the new host and theme for March.
Stay tuned for a special series of posts beginning next Monday-another lovely art surprise that has gotten me so inspired to create some special projects and tutorials for YOU!
" If one says 'red' - the name of color - and there are fifty people listening, it can be expected that there will be fifty reds in their minds. And one can be sure that all these reds will be very different."
