This weeks challenge over at soartful is to use the ticket photo for inspiration and the theme being CHANCE.

I think I may have got a little carried away this week, or maybe I am going stair crazy withthis cold weather and white stuff thats now more or less gone and left us with rain rain and more rain, oh how I crave the sun and heat of the summer lol Any how, I have been laughing my socks off for the last few days as I find this hilarious BUT my hubby and son dont GET IT. lmao.

PERHAPS ITS ME!!!! but I just find it hilarious that they dont get that either lol
This is my digital image I created, but I wanted to go a little further with it.........

This is what I then created making it a more dimentional piece.......
This is just paper piecing with the same images but adding multi media effects to the background, I added a fine layer of gesso and then spritz with a pearlescent ink, but you cant really see it in the photo.

Then because I liked the backing paper I had created so much, I then went on to create this piece which has taken me roughly 3 days thinking on and off and the same making as I have added bits and pieces to it.

This time I have torn the background paper into pieces and glued it onto a backing then stitched to a pearlescent paper, added the wording with letter from a K & Co embelly kit then added the image in different colours onto the backing xxx

Let me know what you think, do YOU get it, or is it JUST ME !!! lol

Julie, You just tickle me. Your enthusiasm is rubbing off on me. I love all three of these so I will be putting all of them in the sidebar.
I'm so glad that you decided to join Soartful Challenges.


P.S. I guess I don't get the joke either. Hope you get sun soon.
