Creative Embellishments May Challenge 2021

Another Challenge here at CE today. This one I struggled with a bit. The inspirational photo was amazing to look at, but I looked at it and looked at it for weeks. I decided to do some background with the new stencils in the store, and just go from there.   Using distress inks and a dabber, I added various colours and shapes to incorporate patterns. Layer after layer of stencils, I covered the large tag with colours and patterns.  I found a resin frame and painted it black, I was really on the fence if I wanted to accent the frame or leave it bold and black. I actually tried a few accent lines and said “nope” it just took away from the boldness of the project.
I picked out the face relic and did some bold lines and dots, pretty clean and simple. I needed to add some type of title to the project, it seemed artistic so I painted a banner and added a quote to the project.

Here is your inspirational photo for the twist this month, very cycadlike.

I did make a quick video of the process.

Here are a few close-ups of the project.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope your inspired to play along this month for your chance at the great monthly price at Creative Embellishments.
