Hi Everyone :D First of all I would like to say a huge, THANK YOU! to Lynn Holland for allowing me access to this blog as we join each other in a new challenge from The Craft Barn.
After completing last years Alpha Challenge from The Craft Barn and having lots of fun, I decided to join in with their newest fortnightly challenge.
The, Quotes & Lyrics, Q&L challenge calls for us to use a Quote and/or a Lyric using one or both of the given words. The words this week are Smile & Up.
I chose to just use Smile on my page. The book I am using is a Windsor & Newton which I got on sale sometime last year. It already has a few pages worked on but the paper is heavy bodied & is so nice to work on. Also, it stands up to wet medium pretty well, so I thought I would make better use of it with this challenge as I have no idea what I will use one week to the next.
The quote is one attributed to Mark Twain, 'Wrinkles should merely indicate where the smiles would have been'. The fabulous image of Stella, which I coloured with watercolour pencils, is from Bugaboo. I created the background with various stencils and acryllic paints and the quote is printed.
Please visit The Craft Barn if you would like to see more Smile/Up work from some amazing artists.
Thank you for visiting **hugs* :D Mo
