Happy Hot Summer Day :) If is not hot where you are, Happy Cool Day!
Today I have the next challenge on the list from the Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3, it is Challenge 8 already(!) using the Faded Layers Technique. Grab your copy of the inspiring book to play along, you can join up anytime at our wonderful Linda Ledbetter's blog at Studio L3 .
This even numbered challenge is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique along with a generous prize awarded to randomly drawn participant. Check out the Boutique it is amazing, HERE! As well, Linda's Curiosity Crew will pick a winner for the Crew's Choice package provided by Tim Holtz and Mario Rossi! So wonderful, thanks so much to everyone for all the inspiration and cool prizes.
My project today came together more simply than ones before, I really am in awe of the results you can get using the technique. So subtle and beautiful.
My print has a more moody feeling and color to it. I did not start off in any particular direction, I was just playing and it is what arrived. I hope you like it:)

I still absolutely adore the Umbrella Man stamp from Tim Holtz. It is a definite keeper! I am nowhere near done playing with that image!
Umbrella Man pairs nicely with The Harlequin stencil as well.
For the sentiment I used a quotation reprinted in a collection by Neil Gaiman called "Fragile Things". Originally it was part of 12 very short stories he wrote to accompany the album, "Strange Little Girls" by Tori Amos. It is often quoted, "Whenever it rains you will think of her."
Thanks for reading and viewing. This is submitted to the Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3, Challenge 8, Faded Layers, sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique.
