This week's theme on Simon Says Stamp and Show is to show off your idea-ology! I've never needed much of an arm-twist to use idea-ology, and this was no exception.
I started with a 6x6 canvas this week, creating a background with distress stains (aged mahogany, crushed olive and picket fence).
I've been lucky to get some of Tim's new stamps, and the mixed media set is to DIE for - such awesome possibilities for random texture.
I've always had a fondness for old things, whether it's an old sewing cabinet drawer or antique skeleton key, so the sentiment from Tim's Words for Thought set was perfect. I stamped different words in different colors to match the background and give emphasis to the key words.
Now comes the idea-ology! I added pen nibs, link chain, the bird adornment, the birdcage, and metal corners.
Hope you enjoyed this week's project. As always - I hope you have a chance to play with some idea-ology this week and join in our challenge. You'll have a chance to win a $50 shopping spree from Simon Says Stamp!
Have a great week!
