This month the challenge over at Happy Daze Design Team Bog is 'Brighten Up The Month', I was also going to put this on Hels Sheridan's weekly challenge but I'm too late.  I am posting to the challenge late in the month as not to spoil the surprise but I am combining this with a piece I have created for a project with some friends from my Kesgrave craft club.  This weekend we have been at our final annual weekend at Belstead House, the council are selling the adult learning centre so our crafty retreat is no more...well until we can find somewhere new that is.  For this we have each created a 6x6 (7x7 with edges) fabric piece which was sewn together during the weekend to create a hanging before being presented to the Lady who hosts/teaches the weekends.

I started by cutting a piece of 7x7 Claudine Hellmuth sticky back canvas and backing it with a piece of old cotton pillow case.  Next I spritzed the canvas with Dylusions inks and Tattered Angels marshmallow glimmer mist.  I stamped Dylusions leaves and flowers in Stazon ink to create my background and highlighted with my Sakura white gelly roll pen.  Next I stamped a very appropriate Dylusions quote and the face on to a plain piece of the canvas, cut out and stuck to the background.  I highlighted aspects with Ranger stickles and pens.
Thanks for looking!
