The final 2014 Craft Barn Q&L challenge words are FAITH and HARMONY.
I had a little difficulty with this one, as I couldn't find anything to inspire me; then I got out my Emily Dickinson book and found this little gem, which made me smile!
"Faith" is a fine invention
When gentlemen can see -
But microscopes are prudent
In an emergency.
As I'm in a collage mood, I created a background from strips of magazine pages, then covered with a thin layer of gesso. Stamped my selection of gentlemen (all by Tim Holtz) and used clear embossing powder to get stronger images, then used Brushos to add some colour.
I am so pleased I've made it to the end, as this is the first challenge I've entered. It has been really fun, I've found some lovely creative people, made it onto the Wall of Fame five times, and also won the random number thingy!
I'm also going to be a bit cheeky and take a fab idea from Bluebeard and Elizabeth, by creating a collage of my entries - such an inspired idea Elizabeth, hope you don't mind!
Thank you to everyone for your comments throughout the year, I really think it is you that has kept me going! I've tried to visit everyone too, and left comments where I was able to - such a diverse display of talent.
As it is just 16 days away - Happy 2015!
