Simon Says Wednesday challenge wants to see polka dots. No, actually they say "going dotty", a word that I took firstly for dots and secondly for being dotty, that made me add some delightful nonsense:
|"Hi! Are you looking for something?"|
|"How weird. I seem to have my shoes on."|
I was influenced by a few other challenges as well:
Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge asks for red, blue and white. I think my atc's are not very wicked, but I'll enter them anyway, just because there are so few ATC challenges around.
PaperArtsy #12 calls for stencils. They have a lot of inspirational technique videos for us. I was very inspired by stencil bumping.
Simon says Monday wants to see how we interpret summer, Stamps & Stencils calls for vacation mood.
Background was first stenciled with red acrylics, then with navy chalk. The retro ladies are from a 1950's sewing pattern sheet for beach shorts, found text from a novel, and flowers were stamped onto a paper napkin and colored.
Thanks for looking!
