There are many things in life we'd like to "bottle"... so this week's theme on Simon Says Stamp and Show gives us an opportunity. I took a trip to Studio 490, using Wendy Vecchi's Art Parts to create a piece of wall art.
I started with the Art Parts flourish frame, covering it with Basic Grey paper, painting the flourishes with a black paint dabber and stamped the frame with the script stamp.
I added the Art Parts jar, which I painted with picket fence crackle paint and then, when dry, accented with tumbled glass distress stain, and over stamped with the matching jar stamp. Then I added the art parts flower, colored with distress inks and the art parts scissors, painted with silver paint dabber and stamped with the matching scissors stamp.
I tucked the art parts queens and crowns behind the frame, like she's peeking over the top. I finished the piece off with some idea-ology pen nibs, a game spinner, wooden stars, and vintage buttons.
Hope you've enjoyed this week's piece and have a chance to join in the fun. As always, if you are able to join in the "bottle it" theme and link your piece up on the challenge website, you'll have a chance at winning a $50 shopping spree to Simon Says Stamp!
Have a great week - hope to see you soon.
