I didn't have a clue about this page, I can recall no pledges ever being made. I never got married so no pledges there either. I make a point of not really making promises, because as soon as you do you are unable to keep them, and I really didn't want to do a page about furniture polish...so what to do hmmmm
then I remembered this little poem that i had sent to friend ages ago, sorry I have no idea who it is by.
I used my faux lumiere paints that I mixed up, and first brayered yellow on both the front and back. now I have a bit of a problem with yellow, I really do not like the colour yellow, it is the colour of bad and wrong. it does not make me feel sunshiny and happy, I don't know why.
So I brayered blue over the yellow.
then I painted the brown onto some corrugated cardboard and used it as a stamp.
I heated it to dry it...cos I am impatient, plus I love to watch things bubble up...this paint did not disappoint, in fact it bubbled fantasmagorically.
Now I am not sure if this is the front or the back, really I guess an image should go on the front, but as the poem/quote was my inspiration..I am thinking this might be the front. I wrote it out onto lined kraft paper, and glued it down, but I only glued it at the top, so you can lift it to still see the bubbled paint..cos I lubs that bit.
On t'other side...I stamped more brown..no bubbling this time. Oh I also stencilled some red paint around the edges.
then I wasn't really sure what to put on it. I ended up with an image from google, that I distressed around the edges, curled up, dabbed some red paint on and glued down.
Oh and I have been pondering on a new weekly project for next year, as a few people told me they wished they had seen this challenge sooner, but felt they couldnt join in as they were so far behind...it really doesn't matter, you can join in whenever you wish...and you dont hve to do all the pages anyway...but i digress...so, yes..next years weekly challenge will be announced around November time, so plenty of time for people to decide if they want to join in come January. All I will say is that it will involve a different country around the world each week, so if you think you might want tojoin in start collecting foreign stuff...
