Pyromaniac Convention

Hello.  Welcome.  So over at PaperArtsy the current topic is Torn Ripped and Burnt.  Burnt??  Hmmm,........

My Man:  What you doing?

Me:  Burning my art

My Man:  Oh.  OK.  (back to reading his book)

This one was inspired by Wanda.  I took a piece of Basic Grey paper that I love, but I have just realised how prominent the word Christmas appears, so maybe I should change the sentiment.  Anyway, I ripped a hole in the middle and folded it back and then set fire to the edges (see conversation above).  Wow, too much fun!!!!   I splatted some Fired Brick distress stain on some yellow vellum, ripped it into strips and stuck it behind the aperture.  I used some of the soot from the burning on my white base card.  The little doggy is from Unity, stamped, embossed and fussy cut.  Sentiment unknown, possibly also Unity.  Great sentiment, maybe doesn't gel so well with the background paper, but the dog is loving it.  But then again.... maybe Christmas is the perfect time to take a chance and change your life.  Seasons Greetings everyone. 

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
