I found out the letter choice whilst on my holiday in Tuscany and decided that the only possible C which I could use was C for Cypress...the stunning Tuscan countryside is Cypress tree dominated.
The countryside is so stunning
And the drive to our villa was a via this incredible cypress lined track.
My vintage dictionary definition is a little odd but never mind the graveyards bit...LOL
I started adding some texture with tissue wrap which I purposefully wrinkled. I also adding texture paste using my flourish stencil
I started spraying my inks and then added lots of drips and drizzles too...I wanted a vintage Italian canvas as a background.
There was always the sound of buzzing bees up at our wonderful villa so I used my Crafty
Individuals bee stamp too. I continued building up the layers of ink until I was happy with my background.
Above is the photo I used which I die cut a gold frame for and added my dictionary definition to.
Then it was time to put on my creative hat and finish my page.
I found a very apt quote on the Internet which I printed on my computer and cut up.
Here is my finished page...
and a couple of close ups. I bought this gorgeous Cheery Lynn wheat sheaf die last winter and this is its first outing.
The fields in Tuscany had been recently harvested and there were hay bales everywhere.
