Challenge #45 to MAKE ART!!

Greetings & Salutations!  Lovely List-Mama Lori of the Yahoo! Everything Wendy Vecchi group challenged her groupies to Make Art, Wendy Style using page 17 of her 3rd book as our inspiration.  Basic theme?  Blue with green and dots.  Here's mine:
EWV MAC #45:  Blue & Green with Dots!

Funny what shows up on film that doesn't look the same in person, LOL.  (like the escapee glue seepage! *sigh*)  I started with an Art Parts bookframe, inked in Faded Denim, which turned out a wee bit too dark, so I added a layer of Faded Denim Distress Crackle paint.   I stamped a few word snippets from Wendy stamps around the edges--"play," "discover," and "enjoy."

Background is a mixture of Salty Ocean (from the YUMMY new summer DI colors!!) and Tumbled Glass.  Script background stamp in Shaded Lilac tops that off.  Sentiment is Wendy's, embossed in black.  Made my own epoxy memo pin using Wendy's fabulous directions and a tidbit from one of her sentiment stamps "see."

Grunge paper shapes from Lord Tim of Holtz--flourishes and arrows--are also inked with the new summer DI colors in Picked Raspberry and Mowed Grass.  The arrows have "Life" and "Believe" snippets from Wendy sentiments stamped on them--easier to read in person, methinks.  Coated 'em both with Distress Stickles in Rock Candy.  Maya Road mini-ticket is stamped with "Love" snippet from a Wendy sentiment, too. Dots, are, of course, quite Wendy.

Flowers, brads & bling are from my stash.  Thanks for popping by...check out the group and join the fun when MAC #46 kicks off tomorrow morning!
