Kripa here with my take on this months challenge
For a while, Ive been wanting to create something about my favorite affirmations. One of them is the subject of my canvas today. Its very easy to get frustrated and run down by a sea of emotions resulting from the challenges life throws our way. But, if one takes a different perspective, from the same set of events/ challenges will arise inspiration, balance and inner peace. Happiness is a choice, not a result.
Ive interpreted Summer theme with the waves of the mighty sea and a ship in a bottle! Cant imagine making a project without my Silhouette Cameo. All the shapes - anchor, seahorse, sea weed, ship in a bottle, birds, sand dollar and a few other random shapes have all been cut with the Silhouette machine.
The background has lots of texture paste, sand texture, gesso - black and white, crackle paste and a variety of fabric, mesh, tissue paper. There were a dozen techniques used to create interesting texture, here is one : apply a fairly thick layer of texture paste. Stamp into it when semi dry. Remember to wash your stamp immediately. Ive stamped Kaisercraft texture stamps and Tim Holtz embossing folder to create patterns in the texture paste. Scroll down to read all the supplies from the Lulupu store used for this project.
