Bet you didn't know I could speak french....... I'm very rusty but many moons ago I studied French and German at 'A' level standard (no idea what the equivalent would be here in the States?). I also lived in the Netherlands for 6 months as part of my college course but although I got to understand the language fairly well, I was always much too shy to speak it!
Anyway the reason for the french title is due to the current challenge over at Simon Says Stamp & Show - 'Inspiration Francaise' . I have been working on some board canvas pieces lately - I love the subway graphics look that is currently so very popular but I wanted to grunge it up a bit!
I started with a 9" x 12" canvas board and laid down a base of gessoed dictionary pages. Then I sponged on some red and blue acrylic paint and once that had dried, stamped on some random images and text. I then applied some vinyl words, cut using my Silhouette Cameo - I used a variety of fonts and a sihouette of the Eiffel Tower. I finished it by inking the edges and applying some matt Mod Podge to protect the whole thing.
Need to work on my photo staging - the metal bird just happened to be there and I didn't have anything at all French!
I would like to enter this into the SSS&S challenge as well as the Anything Goes challenge at Loves rubber stamps , Craft My Life challenge 2 and the 'Countries' challenge at Crafting When We Can.
Thanks for stopping by again :)
