Shopping Our Stash - Challenge #200 - Big, Bold, and Beautiful

Hello, Crafty Peeps!

Shopping Our Stash is celebrating 200 Challenge Posts!  
We want to see "BIG, BOLD, AND BEAUTIFUL" creations.

Now is the time to use that HUGE Flower, that looked so good online,  but now languishes neglected and hidden in your stash!  Surely you can find Stencils, Masks and Die cuts that are too BIG f or regular use, but perfect for a challenge such as ours.   BOLD colors may be the route you take!  We want to see them all!   Thanks for supporting the SOS Challenge!

My Recipe for Living A Bold Life
  LIVE every moment to the fullest.  Appreciate the beautiful Bold colors found in nature. Allow Music to elevate your soul.  
Surround yourself with the warmth of family and friends.
Fear Nothing but the lost of the Fear of G-d.

The background texture was created by applying mod podge to my canvas and 
 adding crumpled tissue paper.  The textured pattern is determined by how 
much your crumple your paper and how you work it onto the canvas.

I used a variety of paints for this project.  But the majority of the paint colors are from the Earth Safe Finishes "Chalk It Up" Acrylic Chalk Paint Line.  I also used some products by Lindy's Stamp Gang, Shimmerz Paints, Ranger Distress Inks, and Viva Inka Gold.  Memory Box and Sizzix Dies.

Thanks for stopping by!  Look forward to seeing your in our challenge
