Mixed Media Canvas for H2H Challenges Bon Voyage Challenge

Today I have the great honor of being the writer for the Bon Voyage challenge at Heart2Heart Challenges so I'll copy what I wrote on proverbial challenge wall!

I've always loved the phrase bon voyage or good journey because it's full of the promise of adventure, fresh starts and exploration. Today we are dedicating this challenge to our newest members of the Close to my Heart sisterhood, the new consultants in Australia and New Zealand. We wish you all buckets of creativity and a joyous start on your new adventure as Close to my Heart consultants and want to give you a warm welcome and invitation to participate in our challenges!

My personal project today is all about my own good journey - being wife to my hubby for the last 22 years.  We've definitely had our fair share of squalls hit us but as a couple we've always grown stronger and closer through the challenges.  I love this guy to pieces for his dedication to our family, keeping me laughing all these years and his support and unconditional love.  I've always said he was the North Star to my wayward journey and this little project captures what he means to me.

Our Tommy paper pack was perfect for this project!  I used the WOTG stamp set for the waves, ship and tag.  The sentiment on top of the Artiste rosette is from the Sail Away stamp set.

The background was colored with Gelatos.  On the water part, I stamped the waves with Outdoor Denim pigment ink and then embossed it with Clear Detail embossing powder.  The boat was embossed with White Daisy powder on the yellow Tommy paper and pieced with some of the blue paper.  I wrapped the frame with some Cranberry CS to give it a finished look.  This baby is going to be displayed downstairs for a while and will probably wind up decorating my craft room eventually.

I hope you'll join us at Heart2Heart Challenges this week with your own interpretation our Bon Voyage challenge!  Be sure to use some CTMH product so your linky stays live!
