Getting creative at Artastic





Here's my entry for this month's Artastic challenge.I was inspired by one of the sayings on the Cosmo cricket matting paper.It became my title.The challenge required a black and white photo but I considered this one fairly neutral,plus I saw that some of the design team have used coloured photos.I've stippled the zigzag trims at the side of the mat with red paint and used glimmer mist on the canvas flowers.The twiddlybits chipboard has been painted with gesso to give an uneven finish and the hat and gloves were hand drawn.The crochet circles were also made by me.This layout has taken a bit of time but it is worth it I think.
