washi misted veneer windows (Retro, I am Doe, Moxie Fab)


This was another of those journey cards.  Many detours.  What it came down to was a new mask and a new Glimmer Mist (Puerto Rico = periwinkle if you remember the Crayola box of 64) which still hadn't been put away properly.

And these two challenges.  The sketch over at Retro Sketches.

And this "sketch" over at I am Doe.  You may have heard of Freckled Fawn.  They have the cutest product pictures, always staged with an adorable fawn statue.  There is now a challenge at the blog.  And who wouldn't love to own some more of the adorable washi tape they carry?


I did myself no favor by combining the two challenges.  They have little to nothing in common.  But then I looked at the layout from I am Doe and reduced it to the elements that caught my attention.  And those were:  washi tape, typology, blue and pink and everything very soft and fuzzy as if in a fog.


Thus the misted image.  The vellum windows with the blue and pink birdies underneath.  The distressed typewriter sentiment.  And the washi.  Of course.

TIP:  Be aware if you apply Distress Ink to wood veneer shapes, they turn out A LOT darker than the original ink color.  That veneer birdie is supposed to be Shaded Lilac which was actually a pretty good match for the Puerto Rico Glimmer Mist.  Maybe I shoulda misted Mr. Bird.  Hmmm.

Adding this to the list over at Moxie Fab's Gallon, Quart, Pint challenge cuz I consciously made the decision to overdo the blue and then add the yellow and pink proportionately.

Thanks for visiting.
