It’s been a “Challenge” ……

…… week! Linda and Rosie over at ABAA decided to be very gentle with us this week and their challenge was a bookmark.This is my contribution. The image dictated something tranquil so I kept the colouring fairly low.
Then June at ArtFreebies has started a challenge too. June provides the image for us to use however we want. This was fun! I used paper from Crafty Individuals. Just love their papers. The background was playtime with Tim Holtz inks on a transparency, the skull also got inked and the dagger …… well, that’s actually a chipboard microphone that I painted (sort of) and fashioned into what I hope looks like a dagger!
Hilda over at LotsToDo wanted us to get gessoed this week. I gesso painted an arch on transparency, stamped using a flourish stamp and then coloured the bits with my Whispers. The image was from my stash and the background was a technique I tried a while back using shaving cream!

I’ve had fun this week! I do hope you enjoy my quirky sense of humour.

Have a wonderful, fantastic and creative weekend.

Do what you love and love what you do.
Hugs and love
Denise

Hi Denise - Thank you for joining the Lotstodo Challenge again this week with this stunning arch.

As Sam says I'm in the throes of moving home so she is going to set the challenges for me for a couple of weeks whilst I get organised. I'll still be popping in though to look at work produced - well I will at least until I change internet suppliers and then the fun may start!!!

Love and hugs Hilda

Denise, these are just so fun to see. I love the Lady MacBeth bit and that last one... Dream... so perfect! The colour is so rich and the composition is very well chosen.
Keep on keeping on.
