Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 177 - the letter G

Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope you have some nice weekend plans!  I am going to try and change up our routine just a bit which won't be too much fun for me but might make our Sundays just a little less busy.  Wish me luck!  :)  Before I get going on my changes let's chat about Speedy Fox & Friends challenge!  This week our challenge is to add something to the project that begins with the letter G.

I have two.  One is obvious, can you guess the other?  After you view the photo I will tell you my second G.  :)  


G is for Green and Gesso!  I took crumpled celophane and tapped it into gesso then stamped all over the panel.  After it was dry I used TH Bundled Sage distress stain.  For the purple panel, I painted it with Lavender paint, after it was dry I painted over the top of a stencil with the brayer.  When I lifted the stencil off the paper I noticed that the design only showed up in spots so I took the brayer and lightly went over the entire panel, then back again with the stencil randomly in spots.  

To get all the details on the challenge and to see the other fabulous inspiration pieces my teammates created please visit Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps Blog right HERE.
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
