Its Whatchamacallit Challenge

Well hello there to the month of November and a whole new month of challenges at the Flying Unicorn.  Oh my gosh, the challenges are sizzling this month!!  The first one I chose to do was issued by Alda our fabulous leader.

This month challenge is about Thing . No! Not that thing ...
but inanimate object thing . Use your photography skills and take a picture of a THING - nothing living. nothing that breaths - therefore NO PEOPLE, NO ANIMALS, NO INSECTS, NO FLOWERS, NO TREES .... it has to be a thing ... and it has to be Layout ...
I give you "The Window".
The quote reads "A smile is a light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside." by Denis Waitley.

Here are some close-ups:
I used Fall Fiesta embossing powder on this flourish.

I used Gesso on the fence stamp for the background.

For the gate I first embossed it with black then with silver.

I first used Gesso on my Technique Tuesday edge, then I painted it with the same mixture of Reeves Gouache paints that I used on my Petaloo flowers, Crimson, red and burnt sierra. Then I sprinked some Fall Fiesta embossing poweder on it.

The next challenge I am working on is Itty Bitty... you will just have to check back to see what that is all about :)
