I'm late (what else is new LOL!!!)

Of course I 'm late with my entry for the Craft Barn challenge. I have just been so darn busy lately, can't help it ladies! Anyhow, I just managed to get this page done in the nick of time. The letter L wasn't a problem, I had the idea straight away, it was that bl.... window that caused me trouble! I just couldn't bring myself to put it across my lovely Make it Crafty's March Hare, so I ended up with making the window out of acetate, in order not to cover up my page too much. Loved the endresult, but then I had to make the pictures. Ever tried taking a picture of something with acetate on? PFfff...
I started my page with a background made with gelatos, for the sky I used Snow and for the grass Margarita combined with Pistachio. I printed the March Hare against a background called Cobblestone Path on tissue paper. First I cut it out roughly around the image, and drew thin pencillines on the background. I painted that area white and then glued the image down with matte gel medium, after which I coloured it in with my Copics.
The clouds were made with gesso which I heated with my heatgun until is started bubbling. That gives is some texture. I then coloured a little bit of grey here and there with a Copic maker.
And then I owe you the word so here it is. I'm off to visit you all! Have a great weekend, hugs Frea

  1. So cool, thanks for the smile on my face.

  2. Very cool word and way to depict it. I was feeling the pressure this time round too ( well actually its most weeks), but as the saying goes, ' if it weren't for the last minute nothing would get done.' I had thought of using acetate too - so glad I didn't now but your photos look great so well done all round Frea.

  3. Wonderful page. Would never have thought of your wonderful ideas
