High Hopes... by Sara

Hello! This year has been a year of musical inspiration for our challenges, taken from songs that are some of Kim's favourites. The theme for August's Dare is High Hopes! ANYTHING GOES as you unleash your creative talents for this challenge.   The song High Hopes by Panic! At the Disco goes out to everyone who might feel alone or that life is feeding them opposition. Kim says "Choose what you need and just go for IT! Know that you have what it takes to push up and come out on top." Click below to listen to this upbeat song, and share your project with us below for a chance to win!

Hello Everyone! It is Sara with you today. I am sharing a Creativation Sneak Peek! My art piece will be displayed at Creativation this January, but because it fit in with this month's Dare theme so perfectly, I get to share it with you early! This piece started out as a dusty Doctor Zhivago record from the thrift store.. I'm pretty sure it had a few scratches on it as well! Soooo....I gave it a thick coat of Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and voila! A  fun art piece!

One of my very favorite techniques is to cut and emboss Silhouette cut files. Embossing the cut files gives them this amazing, enamel like sheen and smooth texture that is soo fun!

The best supporting product for this technique is a good painters or masking tape. I use Thermoweb Purple Tape and mask off areas to achieve the different colored sections.

I used NINE different embossing powders on this project ..that's right... NINE!

I hope you enjoy my take on this month's High Hopes Challenge!
Have A Lovely Day!
