A great theme for the challenge at DU2 this week as it has given me the opportunity to play with Christine's wonderful Fusia image which I have coveted for a while now!
Stunning isn't it!
I've been playing around with different ways of creating backgrounds and love the way this has turned out. I painted the flowers with TH distress inks after printing out but the image was very stark against the background so i wanted to soften the whole thing. I brushed mustard seed over the centre of the image, then brushed barn door around the edge and I love the softly muted look it gives the whole thing.
After trying one charm after the other I decided none of them looked right so made a wire and bead thingy myself and am fairly pleased with the result.
Have fun this weekend and don't forget to create some special moments in time for yourselves!
