Here is my first project for Mystic Paper this month. The 7gypsies paper and the wallpaper border in my kit just spoke something western to me. Maybe it was because I was surfing around the blogs right during the Paper Cowgirls event and that inspired me, but when I found the Crafty Secrets wild woman image, the chimes rang and the lightbulb flashed and angels sang, "Aaahhh." I love that moment when it's like, "Okay, I can do this. Yes." Vision and the feeling it gives me once imagined always shocks me a little. Isn't that funny?
Well, here she is...my collage board.
My "Wild Woman." I painted a Glimmer Chips frame white (super sloppily) and rubbed it with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I loved the old west look of it.
White paint and ink on grungeboard letters. Up in the top left corner you can see some of the flowers I cut from the wallpaper border. Love that stuff, so luscious in color, weight and texture.

Tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree it's been three long years..... (that's all I know.) :) Goodness do I ever love seambinding. And did you notice, I couldn't help myself from using crepe streamer (once again) to make a sumptuous ruffle, just the touch of western femininity I wanted. Oh and with the Brushed Corduroy ink. Yeah!
