Lasting Memories Challenge Stars and Stripes

Well you would have thought that this weeks challenge at Lasting Memories would have been easy for me. I mean star and stripes, how difficult can that be? BUT I took Studio Calico's Inked Class. And as a result I decided to use gesso, with a striped stamp and paint from water color paper. (No that is not a typo there really is watercolor paper paints.) Well it is was a freaking disaster. When the red paint dried it looked like brown paint. So then I thought why not cover the red with  Tim Holtz  Distressed Red Barn Paint daubers? It turned into a frigging mess.  The DT deadline was fast approaching so I decided to pull out the tried and true Doodlebug paper. And I will try the gesso at a later date when I have time to practice!

So here is attempt Two:

Journal: Charlie's Angels was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid. In particular I loved Kate Jackson. The show returned as a movie during the boy's teens years. I didn't see it but the boys did. The car is from the movie version and can be seen at the Stars" Cars Museum in Gatlinburg TN.


Cardstock and Paper: Bazzil Wax Lips Card Shoppe, Bazzil Marshmallow Card Shoppe, Doodlebug Red, White and Blue

Dies: Lawn Fawn Puffy Stars
