#115 Fairy Tabia's Bubbles
Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - fairies
Sponsor & prize this week - Joanna Sheen (£10 gift voucher)
Now I am not always the most decisive of people - but that is only because I can often see so many possibilities.... When I started to make my project for this week's challenge, this was one of my problems. Too many things flying through my head! So many in fact that I just might produce some of the other variations as some point just to get them out of my system! LOL. The image is 'Fairy Tabia' by Mo Manning. Isn't she just gorgeous? I do love Mo's images.
Yes, I was still playing with my Silhouette too, so made my framework for Tabia on this creating a 'special place' for Tabia to reside within the bubble circle all of which I had also made myself. This circle of circles is in fact two layers so that I could add the coloured 'bubbles' neatly. These ones were actually made from colouring Promarkers onto acetate. The reverse is actually ever so slightly different (a couple of extra cut out bubbles so it is just that little bit more interesting on the back than it otherwise might have been - I know, I am mad!!!) The logic being of course, that as it dangles it will rotate slightly so didn't want it to be too boring on the back.
The second circular panel is a variation of the first one, but with extra bubbles/circles including one in the centre, a dangling sentiment. Again this panel comprises of two layers to sandwich the 'bubbles' safely & neatly in between. The chain I have had in my stash for some time (well, years to be perfectly honest, LOL) but the links (fortunately), were pliable enough to allow me prise them apart with some pointy nosed pliers to get my card elements in.
Now all I need is some sunshine so the 'bubbles' can come to life......LOL.
