It's a Fab World

 Today's the last day to post a design for the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, so I wanted to get this design up.  Here's the trigger design: 

The colors are definitely "manly," hence the name for the Tuesday Trigger - "Mantastic."  The shape reminded me of both raindrops and flower petals.  So here is what I came up with.  For the Walk, Dance or Just Get Wet design, I created a stencil from a silhouette I found on the internet.  I used the part I cut out as a mask, and sprayed red and blue ink to create a positive and a negative design using  Balzer Designs' blazonry stencil.  Then I stenciled the man using black acrylic, and wrote on him with a Sakura silver gel pen.  It wasn't enough, so I stamped a little, doodled a little, and eventually was happy.  I like how the colors and the shape of the blazonry stencil echo the beautiful rug.  These are color combinations I don't often use.  So I was happy for the challenge.  And I love the saying -- make the best of every situation!

For Run With Scissors June 9 prompt (what would you shout out loud today), I made a background using the colors in the Tuesday Trigger, taking my cue from a great Art Journal Cafe tutorial.    I love this saying.  We can't just sit and wish and dream about our future -- we have to go out and make it.  Seize the day!!
