Day 6 homework for Creative Chemistry 103

Day 6 is the final day of Creative Chemistry 103 and it's been brilliant. For this lesson Tim talked about surfaces and substrates and our homework is to use one of the techniques we have learnt this week but present it on something other than a tag/card backing.

The only substrate I own is hessian so I got out my hessian and sprayed vintage photo distress spray through my flourish stencil to make this cool patterned background.

During Day 5 lesson I had made the piece below using the resist technique with Yupo and alcohol inks.  I love the embossed floral pattern that gets revealed.

I used a small piece for the centre of my project.

I then put on my creative hat and this is the card I created.

I would also like to link it up with the following challenges;

A vintage journey stencil it
Simon says stamps Wednesday fabulous florals
Take it make it stencils/masks
Paper Artsy patterns I made a repeat pattern on my hessian from the stencil and also in my embossed Yupo focal insert.
Craft Heaven Shop Challenge  #14 anything goes
Uniko flowers

Although there are no more classes in 103 the wrap up day is next week and we have until this Friday (12th) to upload any other pieces of homework,  there are some cool  prizes to be won. I will be sharing a few more with you, including I think, my favourite piece I made ;0)

I would also like to remind you that my 6th bloggerversary giveaway clsoes tomorrow at 5pm GMT. The details are up at the top of my side bar if you would like to enter. Everyone is most welcome.

Thanks for your visits and the very kind comments you have been leaving about my homework. Welcome also to my newest followers. It's so great to share my creative journey with you here at Jane's Journal. The weather at the weekend was glorious and yes it was Pimm's O'clock in the garden yesterday afternoon ;0)
