Just the Rain

At the Flying Unicorn, we're playing Idol.  I got my gold ticket at the audition for my layout "you better not pout".  I made it past round one of Hollywood Week with the help of these Journey lyrics:


I used an image from the Franklyscarlett ephemera sheet by Gecko Galz and the Tim Holtz Alternations die Umbrella Man.  The red doily heart is mounted on a white chipboard heart.  

I'm linking this to the Aud Sentiment challenge#46 where we're to use the word love on our project.  The theme also is "if LOVE were a movie, you'd be a box office hit".  My piece is rather the opposite, but the movie stars of Gone With the Wind certainly were a hit.

I'm also linking this to the first challenge for 2012 at Art With No Boundaries: Express Yourself.  
I posted the badge link a while back and have been anxiously waiting for the new challenge.  
Express Myself:  I love images, both stamps and digital clip art.  My most favorite image is the Umbrella Man by Tim Holtz.  I own it in every form that was made--stamps, die cut, ATC embossing folder.  I love working with photo images and am happy to be on the Gecko Galz design team where I can create with their amazing images.  This is an example of how I express myself.  I love to take these images and create something either a little quirky or very vintage. 

The Polar Bear Pajama Party starts at 6pm est this evening and runs until 6pm est Sunday night.  Lots of crop challenges with prizes -- not to mention the chatting and games.  I'll be back later today to tell you about my challenge.  I hope you can join in the fun at the Flying Unicorn.
