Another Day of Forever

Hello Everyone
It has been the longest time since I last posted for Darkroom Door and I have to say a huge Thank You to Rachel for mailing some fabulous stamps my way.
I did a complete U-turn on this project as when the wonderful Brushed Daisies set arrived I toyed with the idea of joyful colours but with the summer being a wash-out and the rain getting under my skin for a different DT commitment, I decided to keep the rainy day theme for one more project.oneThe stamp element is the daisy head onlytwobut I wanted the flower to have a stem. Β No trouble, I simple painted a stem with leaves.threeA piece of textured wallpaper, painted to co-ordinate with grey velvet ribbon, a scrap of seam binding and a pearlised button.fourDinky Stencil Abstract Stone creates the base layer of texture.

    This daisy image shines through the grayness wonderfully, Lynne!! I can completely appreciate your use of the grayer tones in your project–I’m wishing for rain to take away all of the smoky haze that’s been in my area this whole month of August. Send me your rain πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    Oh, there’s another dinky stencil background–LOVE IT!! And LOVE the pieces of velvety ribbon πŸ™‚ Such a pretty piece, Lynne!!

    Such a gorgeous texture and lovely design. Ok, maybe it’s not bright and summerish, but it could be a 4season one!

    This is just beautiful, dear Lynne! Even though I appreciate some color again, I still like neutrals as well. I love the simplicity of this piece and the different textures.
    Have a wonderful Sunday!
