Airondack Color Wash!

Studio L3!
You go and visit

Tim Holtz, right?
Well, not actually go visit TIM, but his website.  Of course.  But you knew that.
is all about the techniques of his Holtzedness, BTW.

Here's what I did.

As far as the Airondack part of this project goes, I masked some paper with a doily and sprayed it here and there with Bottle Green and Stream Blue Airondack Ink Spray.  Then I added some Gold Maya Mist in places.  Then I cut it in strips and wove them together. 
I stitched circles and cut the circle out with decorative scissors.
The lady, I found on the Internet.  Flourishes are a mixture of Basic Grey, Little Yellow Bicycle, and Recollections, some of which were Cuttlebugged. (is that a word?)
The top wing is a Recollections Die Cut which has had a bit of gold foil added and some bling.  (always need bling)
I drew in the straps and added a couple of flowers I got somewhere or other.
And that's all.

You know, for a couple of weeks now, I've been trying to decide what I want to make for the Gingersnap Creations Once in a Blue Moon Challenge.
I've chosen WINGS:
Except, maybe I need to call it "Wing".

Thanks for stopping by today!
