I was so excited when I saw the concept of the
International Tournament of Art and Craft
So here is my project for Challenge 1 - Europe.
I've created a canvas for my craft room.
I've used some Beethoven music paper (a European element) for my background and added some blue around the border.
I used an amazing AALL&Create exclusive stencil (designed by the incredible Fiona Paltridge) with some gold colour paste.
I have added some flair buttons from Fabrika Decoru. The designs on the flair represent the face and the vintage requirements, but also represent modern-day globalisation in the fact that I was able to buy these from Ukraine, all the way to Australia!
My chipboard title is from 2Crafty, and I have layered gesso, heat embossing, acrylic paint and Glossy Accents to build texture.
I've added lots of different textured embellishments - paper, chipboard, resin, wire, fabric, glass, feather, sequins and muslin.
I have used the following requirements for the
Week 1 Challenge-
- A face
- Music paper
- Letters, numbers
- Something both vintage and modern
I really enjoyed putting this project together,
and look forward to the Week 2 Challenge!
