Secret Garden

Hi!  Happy Valentine's Day!  All my valentines are done and distributed and I already shared them with you all!  My desk took a hit last week with three different projects and I finally cleared it off today.  That gave me a fresh desk and creative palette to play along with the Vintage Journey Tic Tac Toe challenge.  The challenge is you get to choose which row you want to play along with.  I dillied and dallied between two and ended up playing along with the Ephemera, Sprays and Texture fades.  (I just received two new Texture fades and was happy to pull them out and play with them.)

I started with the panel and laid down the rub-ons on white cardstock this was on Tim's tags last year and I love how it leaves the white behind the images.  I then blended the sprays together (Ranger Distress Stain Spray - Broken China, Heidi Swapp Color Shine) over the surface.  I felt like it looked like a garden and needed an image in the middle.  I  cut out the Found Relatives image and placed her in the Secret Garden.

I added a few swirls with paint.  Then I decided to place it in a house shape using the new Texture Fades on the house which is a light cardboard. 
I finished it off with a metal embellishment and a few more rub-ons.

Products: Ranger Distress Stain Spray - Broken China, Heidi Swap Color Shine - Mustard, Idea-ology - Botannical Remnant Rubs, Life Quotes - Remnant Rubs, Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Flourishes, Texture Fades -  Typewriter, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Found Relatives
