It's been a week since I added anything to my blog. I've missed several challenges, and I wasn't sure I'd be able to get this one done in time. I caught a nasty bug and spent the last week in bed. What's worse, this was my birthday week. However, everything has turned for the better. My energy isn't full strength and I still have a cough, but I'm able to get back to doing what I love to do just in time for Friday's Bloggers Challenge. The theme this week is alter it.
Technique Junkies newsletter. I also used another TJ technique on the bottom background, faux paneling. The photo doesn't show the definition of the paneling very well, but it shows up IRL. The flourish (grungeboard painted gold) and the memo pin are from Tim Holtz's line. The sentiment is from Club Scrap. I guess the fact that this piece is created on a coaster, gives a third point of altering.
I'm really happy I was able to finish this challenge. It was fun to do and it will make a great addition to my art collection.
