Smile

Another Tic Tac Toe challenge over at Soul Scrappers - see below for the gird.  I chose the middle vertical line - button, gold, string or twine.
I started the background for this last month - it has lain idle - not sure I really like it!!! Why is it that I often don't like these more arty attempts?
This challenge was what started me on putting a photograph on it.
I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam Peach Bellini by first painting it onto a white cardstock and then I tipped the bottle on the top and let it dribble down the page.  A Heidi Swapp glitter gold sticker "Smile".  I then painted a contrast piece of paper with Glimmer Glam to form a photo matt, and at the top I have used flowers, twin and a cotton scalloped ribbon (that I applied some of the glimmer to as well - you can never have too much glitter can you?).   Buttons have twine bows and several smaller buttons were applied. Here is a close up of the sticker and also the background.
Tic Tac Toe selection.
A little about the photo - in 2014 a lot of work was done on the Ettalong Beach foreshore, near where I live.  Included in the redevelopment was several of these workout stations.  Now anyone who knows me knows that I am not at all exercise minded - but it was just too good an opportunity to pass up.  Of course everyone exercises with a handbag, a summer dress and their best flip flops - but I did!!!! 
Why not head over to Soul Scrappers and join in the fun challenges they have.
