artist choice

hi tando fans. thank you for coming by for a visit.  it's roc here today.  it's a free-for-all week and i have had the pleasure of creating this piece for your viewing pleasure.  i used the straight edge arches large.  i painted the outer chipboard rim with ranger's red distress paint and left it to dry.  the inner arch i covered with a package insert left over from a used sheet of rub ons.  i used yellow distress paint to cover over it.  while that was drying i stamped a bird image on a scrap piece of paper and the layered it on black cardstock and some red and white striped paper.  i tied a piece of linen string and secured a feather charm in the knot.  i added an epoxy "b" sticker.
i used the music mask on the red outer edge and sprayed it with dylusions black spray.  next i sprayed dylusions yellow spray over the random circles mask on the inner arch and the used dylusions red spray with the sequin waste mask.
when all the pieces were dry i put covered the back with pattered paper to hold the arch together and then i layered the bird with pop dots to give it a three dimension.
i hope this inpsires to create an arch for yourself.
make sure you come back frequently to see what's new.  we always enjoy your visits.



As its Wednesday today we have a new post over on the Tando Creative Challenge blog - hope to see you there....
