LOC Art for Arts Sake

Thank you for stopping in today - I have been working on something that has been so much fun and want to share it with you!  I am so excited and honoured to be asked to teach Card Design at the Local Art Centre - Tuggeranong Art Centre,  starting first term next year - how exciting is that!!

  Even more exciting is they are wanting me to use my Layers of Color art stamps - this makes it perfect for me!

I was asked to create a some art advertising the Classes to be in the reception window - and this is what is came up with...

Using the fabulous Natural Flourish art stencil and those divine butterflies from the Flutterescent art stamp set.

Along with the Belle Brocade art stencil and another butterfly from the Flutterescent art stamp set - I love these butterflies and have coloured them with SU Chalks and added some Kindy Glitz for that shimmer that works so well on their wings.

The Vintage Medallion art stencil has sponged with Tim Holtz Distressing Inks in some festive Christmas colours - red, green and orange - each art stencil has had the same techniques and colours used.

Did you notice anything? The purpose of this is to advertise the classes and I had so much fun I forgot to leave room for any words - LOL!! 

As this is a 12x12 I added a panel to each end of it with the details - phew!!  It took longer to cut the letters out with the Die Cut than to create the art work!!!  Arghhh!!

This is for the following challenges:
The Stamp man - Christmas and anything Tim Holtz
Digi Doodles Shops Best - Red and Green
Stamp Insanity - Try Something New - a poster!
Creative Inspirations Challenge - Red, Gold and Green
Integrity - Anythng Goes
Creative Belli - Anything (R) - rhinestones
Gingersnap Creations - Vintage Hues
