Just sittin'

The year's end is fast approaching...time to renew

Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger has a calming effect on me. Take a look at this room from Coastal Living. Serene. Love the colours.

The colour combo was most inspirational to me.

I decided to use this chair image from Impression Obsession and coloured it in a light warm gray with my Copic markers. I think the gray gives the chair that worn, has a history look to it. Maybe many stories were read/told from that chair...
The cushions on the chair took their colour combo from this pattern paper from DCWV "Berry Street" from the Farmer's Market pack. I love the textures and quality of this company.

Here is a close up of the chair. I cut out all of the spaces on the chair back with an Exacto knife. I have to tell you that this took more than the 5 minutes in my head that I thought it would! I do like the outcome however :) I also decided that the seat cushion should be puffy, so I stamped out another and coloured, backed it with dimensional foam and voila', a puffy seat cushion.
The punches I used are MS and the sentiment is also Impression Obsession.

Thanks for peeking in again,
cheers, chriss
