Runner Up at More Than Words
for September challenge
It was Election day this week here in Israel, so apart from voting, I celebrated the day off by making a layout with an inspiration so matching the day.
The current challenge at More Than Words challenge blog is 'Origin plus colors of your country's flag'.
I was born and raised in Israel. this is my homeland, land that I love.
Our flag's colors are blue and white, and the design of the flag is inspired by the Talit design - stripes at the edges and Magen David (star of David) in the middle. I used these elements in my layout.
I used a photo of David's tower in Jerusalem, this is one of Israel's most famous sights.
I was also inspired by the current challenge at Creative Embellishments
Mostly by the hues of blue in the tubes. I also used some flairs (some of CE) for the twist of a circular element. The flourish chipboards are also of CE.
To color the chipboards, I use Lindy's Gang embossing powders (Midnight Copper, Madonna Robe Blue Gold and Desert Moon Turquoise).
The Magen David is made by two opposite triangles, so I used 7 Dots Studio stamp of triangles (Dreamscapes), heat embossed with Lindy's ep (Purely White).
Some of the stamps on the background are 49 and Market (Pascale's Grammer). The flowers are all 49 and Market (Blossom Blends Cotton, Blossom Blends Sea Breeze, Vintage Shades Potpouri blue and cotton).
Inks are TH tea dye distress ink, and Ranger's archival inks sepia and jet black).
Papers are 13Arts, Mintay Papers, Fancy Pants and Craft O'clock - all from my September Counterfeit Kit (and so are CE flairs)
Mediums - Finnabair's gesso, clear and white.
