Lady in Red

The last challenge for April
over at
the last challenge is to
make a monochromatic layout about yourself!

I have to say the design team found it difficult
I think think they did a fabulous job
I love what hey came up with
why don't you
go and have a look.....

Here is my take on the challenge....

A lot of distressing and misting went into this layout
After placing the photo on a bed of misted and scrunched up paper doilies
I placed various mismatched thickers around the photo
I gessoed over the words and when they dried
misted them in various shades of red.
It is a fabulous way to use up left over letters

I wish you all a Happy Easter
Καλή Ανάσταση!!


  1. Το αποτέλεσμα είναι θεικόοοο....η επιλογή του κόκκινου χρώματος ήταν τυχαία η λέει και αυτό κάτι για το ποιά είσαι?...Καλή Ανάσταση!
