God's Sonrise - APR #34

just add water silly's blog hop link

I haven't been able to participate in the Artist's Play Room challenge in a while. Jenn puts this wonderful challenge together each week and this particular week's theme is sunset. We are allowed to take our own spin on the theme, so I am slightly altering it to sunrise. More specifically Sonrise. 

In another lifetime I had an online scrapbook store - Scrap Attack -  and I made a lot of paperpieces. This was one of my favorite pieces to make! All hand-torn from cardstock (except for the three crosses) and layered. Because of the hand-tearing, every finished piece looked different. Typically I would print the wording onto vellum and do an overlay, but for this challenge I added the wording in photoshop. Please head over to the Artist's Play Room to see all the sunset themed artwork. Feel free to enter your very own sunset for us to enjoy! Thanks for this fun challenge, Jenn, it brought back some really great memories for me!

  2. Glad to see you've got home safely. This is really an interesting concept - I've not come across a whole design with paper piecing quite in this manner before. Very striking & arresting - makes one think.
