Our Children

My love affair with Quotes started way back when when I was a child in Primary School. Every time I read the Readers Digest, I would copy the Quotes in my little note book to use any one of them for my Essay Writing. I have never stopped writing them down but sadly I lost a fair amount of them as I moved around a lot.
With the advancement of technology, I print my favorite quotes and use them on my layouts as and when. So when my sister, Asmah, showed me a project by Chrissy, I was inspired to create a similar project.
For this project, I used chipboard I saved from a file that was to go to trash. I removed the PVC cover and decided to upcycle the chipboard. Using the ordinary masking tape, I wound around the chipboard creating texture as I went along. Due to the thickness of the texture, I applied two coats of Gesso before painting them.
I am entering this project for the MMMC challenge #18 with the Theme Texture.

Here is my project.

Supplies used : Chipboard, Masking Tape, Printed Quote, Acrylic Paints (Terracotta, Rosa Red, Phthalo Blue, Mars Black), Gesso, Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist, Modelling Paste, Eno Greeting Laser-cut Butterflies, Mod Podge, Kaisercraft Stencil, Pop Art Pattern Paper
