Expressing Art

This is the project I made this week at Joan's Gardens....
 
look at all the goodies that were used on this one.....
lets start with the background....
I have been into background stamps lately, but this is not a stamp, but a stencil...
yes, that's right, a stencil,
using Liquitex Molding Paste mixed with  TH Distressed Walnut In Refill....
the hardest part was letting it dry (which is pretty fast)...
then look at all those lovely dies (I will list at the end)....
the lovely lady is from Graphic 45's "A Ladies Diary"...
she was covered with Ranger's Perfect Meduim, then Utee and heated until smooth...
what fun...she is so pretty with a beautiful sheen...
My gorgeous flower was also made by me....
 
My take on the "sentiment" is my background...
it reads something like this ....
 "Art is just another way of expressing our innermost
thoughts onto concrete media"....so true!!
 
I am entering this into the Shabby Tea Room challenge "Summer Cottage"
using the colors shown, distressing element and sentiment....
 
Some of the products used are:
TWC 6 x 6 template
Marianne dies LR0236 and LR0128
Cheery Lynn Dies B117S (Flourish)
Memory Box 98341 (fern)
Spellbinders S4357 Spiral Blossom.....all these products used may be purchased at Joan's Gardens

Hi Diane,

I was wondering how I could leave you a message on Pinterest and then I saw your blog board.

The message is: "I think I repinned 20% of your card boards but I'm not done looking at your stuff so the percentage might go higher. We have similar tastes."

I am a new follower. I hope you can visit my blog.
