Fireworks are a big part of celebrations at this time of the year, so at A Vintage Journey we are celebrating the start of a new month and a new challenge with the theme
Baby You're a Firework!
Be inspired by fireworks to create a Tim style project - think Distress Glitter, Bold Colours, Ink and Paint Splats and just ….. FUN !!!!
So go on, light up that night sky !
To be honest I am not a great lover of fireworks unless I am behind glass as a rocket landed in my hair many years ago as a child which was quite a frightening experience. But I do love watching all the wonderful colours lighting up the sky at this time of the year. So I decided to recreate the wonderful clusters of firework colours by using Tim's Rosette Die (when did you last get that one out!).
I used black gesso on some greyboard and also mixed black gesso into some texture paste to imitate a firework sparkly sky. Some splatters of white gesso and some star remnant rubs added to the night sky background.
I managed to cut off the tops of some glass pins for the centres of the rosettes - hard work but they do add a little bit of sparkle!
I do hope you have some fun creating some wonderful fireworks for our challenge. Do hop on over to A Vintage Journey for details of the challenge and to see how the rest of the Creative Guides have interpreted this challenge. I promise you there is an amazing array of different projects.
Thank you for joining me today and have a great weekend.
