Here is the Pointe du Raz (I think this is the French Lands End) very appropriate as we were in Finisterre.
The street sign is one I saw in the old walled town at Concarneau. There is something that I can't resist about flowers growing out of walls.
Anyway, now I'm home should I do the washing or get a little art fix? No contest really.
I'm so glad Linda has extended the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge No.10 at Studio L3 for an extra week, and I'm still just squeaking in. As you know this is THE challenge for celebrating all things Tim Holtz, but you do need his book Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2 to find full details of all the techniques he uses.
This weeks challenge is to make tissue paper flowers as shown on page 37. The challenge this week is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie's Boutique
I decided to make a canvas (8" x 10") and having collaged a few bits of patterned paper and painted with Golden Fluid Acrylics in Cobalt Teal and Sap Green I did a bit of stamping using Christy Tomlinson stamps from Unity, and some messy spraying with stencils and Dylusions inks.
The stems and leaves are garden twine, and I forgot to say that I added some bits of canvas tape to the canvas for extra texture. This little canvas is a version of one that I made earlier this year as part of Donna Downey's Canvas Create on-line class.
Now I need to go and catch up with all the fab stuff I've missed in blogland over the last couple of weeks.
