Yet another week has sped by, I blinked and missed it!
It's Wednesday again so another challenge theme begins at Stampotique, check out all the details here,
our hostess is Nellie and she is inviting us to use our favourite background technique.
I remember reading somewhere a while ago that backgrounds are backgrounds and shouldn't dominate what you make, make of that what you will. To me a background can be anything you want it to be. Bright and cheery or subtle and understated.
My favourite technique is to rip up an old book, at first I really struggled to do this as I love books, but I have just 2 books now that are just for this kind of thing. Once I've ripped up and stuck down bits of pages I like to paint them.
I have mentioned the arrival of Spring in previous posts but it really does feel a little like Spring now and I wanted to capture this for this weeks challenge so I chose happy colours and tried to make it look like the flowers were having a party to celebrate!
The stamps I used are:
Agatha Star, for the star
and Tiny Handhelds, for the heart.
I hope it's Spring where you are and that you are having a lovely day, Sam xxx
