This week's Splitcoast Mixed Media challenge, MIX93
was to be inspired by the videos or blog of France Papillon.
I was inspired by this video called TOP SECRET.
I was inspired by the turquoise brown color combo and I was inspired by how she applied the texture with a plastic bag.
I used a plastic bag to add the gold to the base of the card. You can see some of the gold in this close up of the left hand top corner of the card. I made scrabble tiles using tan cardstock and two layers of cereal box cardboard. I stamped the alphabet stamps and cut them into squares. I used a pen to add the numbers. I inked around the edges to give them some depth.
Now you would think that this was a card to inspire people to dance, because dancing is important. Now, I'm not saying that it isn't important, but for today, what was important to me was laughter and character.. I printed the words. "We could all use a laugh" Kind of a snarky comment, but it did make me smile. The part about character is not letting what others do affect us. You know what if people see me dancing, they are going to laugh till their sides hurt. I could choose to be upset and stop dancing or only dance where no one could see me or I could choose to laugh along. and keep on dancing. THE CHOICE on how I feel is mine.
