Live with passion



This page started out with a gelli print that wasn't doing it for me, but after I added this face stencil (this was while playing with my new stencils) it blew me away. She reminded me of a Spanish flamengo danser, wich fitted in perfect with this forthnigth's Q&L challenge word passion. I didn't add much more to it, just made her lips red and added a red glittery hair accessoire. Then came the dilemma on how and where to add the quote, finally I decided to make a frame around the picture and add the quote on the edge as if it were the title of a painting. The frame took me some time: deciding the color, the size and then came the even harder bit: the measuring.


Me and my husband like it so much we will give this a prominent place in our hallway. 
This also solves my problem on how to incorporate it in my quotes book (which I will be making at the end of the year) as this is not the same size as the other pages, but is much bigger.

  3. Gorgeous page, it blows me away too, so striking with the touches of red. You've gotta love stencils! Shame about the Craft Barn Linky closing prematurely, not happened before. BJ

  5. A striking stencil but the gel lipping really makes it. Well done for managing to work round your problems.
