The new quote & lyric challenge at the craft barn


New year - new challenges. I enjoyed joining the dictionary challenge last year and it is nice to have "something to keep you going" - to  keep thinking in a creative way.

Craft barn started a new challenge called quote & lyric - this fortnight the words are "smile" and/or "up".
So here we are - my journal page including a quote with the word "up".

I used gesso and modelling paste with different stencils. The colours are my beloved neocolorsII  - the stamps are from Paperartsy (wings - plate 4), Christy Tomlinson (CT-944A) and Traci Bautista (T1005).

In the end I embellished the page with some washitape to add some contrast. The quote is from an old book -  wake up and be awesome!

Hope you like it!
