Paperartsy Inspiration - The Sun ....................

Hi all, just popping on to show you my entry for the Paperartsy Inspiration Challenge and my entry is based on France Papillons beautiful frame.  I loved how she did the grunge paste circle and I knew immediately that I wanted to do a sun :-)

I initially wanted to shade around the sun
in black, well that was a huge mistake lol, 
I ended up have to repaint all around the area.
It looks patchy on here but it really is lovely in real life.
I wanted the whole canvas to be about the sun so
to reflect the sun on the flowers I used a shimmer spray.
Further down I show you how I did my squiggly lines :-)

I wanted some wiggly lines and wonder how I would go about it,
then I had the idea would it work in a shringe .............

It worked a treat and as long as you rinse it out straight
away then it can be used again next time.
I think it would go solid if I left it in there so I thought I better
not try as I only have one shringe left lol

I wanted my lines squiggly but you could do straight lines.
When I was using my oil pastels I didn't like the lines on top of the circle
so I took a sharp knife and it came off really well.

Right I had better go and clean up lol.  Hope your Sunday is crafty, I am planning on giving my craft room a good duster and hoover as seriously it needs it after this week.  Then I am going to step away from my craft room and do some catching up with blogging as there is some great makes I want to comment on.
Lots of Hugs

Oooh clever you, the syringe idea worked out great, before I saw it I thought you'd embedded a piece of string into the GP.

Fab bold colours and great sun!!
