and i HAD to do something with this when i saw the challenge.
i discovered The Creative Type tonight whilst checking out LiveJournal. i perused the site a little, and LOVED the concept - the challenges and prompts are TYPOGRAPHY-based. not only do i love my Dymo Label Buddy, but i have a ton of alphas and vintage papers and fun script pages and stamps that should help me through the challenges quite nicely. (Lauren, you may want to check it out - seems right up your alley!)
tonight, i opted for a sheet of yummy Prima Paintables with florals and lots of text on it (although it's hard to see, except for the small torn strips on the side, as i covered the page with gesso and glimmer misted the bajeebus out of it), and used up lots of leftover random alphas, plus some from the Basic Grey EERIE collection (the word HEAL).
here's the challenge - they went NEUTRAL, so i went with mono grey.
here's what i came up with (and i IMPLORE you to click the images for a much better peek):
oh, i can tell you right now, you'll be seeing MUCH more gesso in future creations here - it was my first time playing with it, and i can't believe i waited so long! it's FABULOUS.
right. so i'm seriously going to bed at 4 am. wonder how yoga will go in 6 hours...
(p.s. - looking at it now, the colours are a little off in the photo - the greys in the paper and photo blend much better, one is no cooler or warmer than the other. weird!)
