Art: my way of life

Hello, my dear crafty friends! This is my very first post made for my new DT for the USA stamp company named  100 Proof Press. Also it's a kind of Guest designing, but it's for quite a long 6 month term, so I may call it my new  design team after all. For the first 2 month I  picked a bunch of stamps that I think can showcase my work in the best possible way, but  there are so many great stamps that this was very difficult to  decide.
So here is my first project: altered hexagon Tando Creative mini tray made  as a tribute to Art. Art is my word for year 2013 and each month I would add another world to combine with ART. So this month it's Life.

The chipboard frame was painted with Rangers Tattered Rose crackled paint. The inside paper was a leftover from Pion designs, but it's hardly seen  after all alteration made.
First I stamped the Old  Script stamp  with white pigmented ink and heat embossed it with White embossing powder (Wow Embossing powders from my other team are just the best for white heat embossing). Then I mixed quite a few of Rangers distress stains (some blues, greens and some pinks) to make my background.
3 main stamped images were stamped with 100 Proof Press gorgeous stamps: Artist's small   palette, Open  notebook and Camera 35 mm, heat embossed and hand cut.  Way of life stamp was heat embossed too and I cut it to 3 separate words to fit the tray window. Then I used some shimmery paints from Creative Inspirations Paints (my previous DT and I still have a lot of paints to use forever), made those colors over the palette,  painted the bare chipboard ART letters (American Crafts) and Handmade Halo brass clock.
The flower cluster was made with IAMROSES flowers, misted and painted a bit and arranged over a piece of Tando Creative chipboard journaling piece (I just cut out the swirls this time). I also dropped a few red
 " blood" paint drops as sometimes art is a painful issue.

Want  to  get some of those gorgeous stamps? Go to the shop and grab some!
