Our March winner was announced on Facebook this week - was it you!!

For my first project, I have something a little more grungy and mechanically inspired. 
 I have used the Square Collage Panel behind the photo. The panel was first inked with 
brown chalk ink with turquoise stone randomly dabbed over the top. Deep Water 
Colour Blast Shimmer Spray was then spritzed over the top.

Colour Blast Shimmer Sprays were used for altering the title 'Live Your Adventure'
A couple of coats of Leather were applied with Deep Water randomly spritzed over the top.

 A similar treatment was done for the Beaded Hanging Heart. 
Gears and a Pen Nib were spritzed with Leather Shimmer Spray. A couple of 
applications were applied to build up the intensity.

For my next project, I have framed my photo with the larger Circle Heart Frame
 A medium sized one along with the smaller Circle Dot Frame sit behind the photo.
The frames were heat embossed with Colour Blast Sunshine Embossing Powder with
 Sunshine Colour Paste dabbed over the top. I dried the paste with a heat gun which 
created a lovely textural effect.   

Mini Hexagon Clumps, the Fencing Wire Panel and Chain Length were cut up. 
Pieces were inked black and then attached under and around the photo.

The title was first inked with brown chalk ink. Leather Colour Blast Shimmer Spray was spritzed over the top with Colour Paste dabbed over the top -  I used Fire Engine and Sunshine.
