Tattered Floral Challenge...

Hi folks...yes better late than never as they say...at last I'm joining in the fun over at Tim's "Tattered Floral Challenge"...a killing 2 birds with one stone project finishing off the canvas that I started at my demo last Saturday...
I laid down a layer of Paperartsy Grunge Paste around the edges...stuck down the "Art" letters and once the paste was dry went to town with Fresco Finish Mocha Mousse and Snowflake to create the background colour but after much stamping and masking it was missing that all important something to make it pop and Tattered Florals were just the thing although the big flower would have looked better bottom left but this was a "think it up as you go along" effort and I hadn't left enough room...c'est la vie...another of my "Perfection is not a destination but a continuous journey that never ends"  fun projects.
corrugated cardboard distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Picket Fence Distress Stain...
Crunchy Waxed Kraft Paper...scrunched up Tulle and bead chain...ooh la la...tres chic Parisian style

I'll see you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: Grunge Paste is now available in the Paperartsy Shop....you can get it HERE

I'm working on a France book for my daughter. I have gotten some ideas now for hers. Love what you did! Beads swirled in center of flower is a greats idea.
