Idea-Ology Bonanza!

It is the early hours of the morning as I type! I am not entirely sure how much sense I am going to make ... but here goes ...
 I could n't get this project right and I am still not happy with it ... and you just would n't believe the mess I have made in my Craftroom ... bomb site is an understatement! But that is definitely gonna have to wait until I have actually been to bed!
I have no clue what happened either ... I mean the theme of Idea-Ology over at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week was music to me ears!
Right up my street ... Lord Tim of Holtz Idea-Ology ... you know Tim ... the man that can win an Oscar without even appearing in a film while balancing barefoot on a pin head over the Grand Canyon with just a long legged brad and a swipe of Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.
I use Idea-Ology on just about ... well ... erm ... everything!
I think the problem may have been that I had just two many ideas and struggled to commit to any one of them!
The inspiration for the base of this piece came from a Lin Brown and Leandra Franich ArtsyCrafts project from last year! I have used a 6" by 6" wood frame and covered it with Grngeboard Alpha Soup before painting it ... that sounds simple ... and actually is ... only I went through the entire colour range of Claudine Hellmuth's paints before I finally decided on ... erm ... black!
Do you know ... because I am so tired ... this is all sounding a bit like a moaning mini post ... perhaps I should leave it here ...
Do join in with the challenge for your chance to win a splendiferous $50 Shopping Spree donated by the amazing people at Simon Says Stamp!
I am off to bed!

What a lovely problem to have Linda, too many ideas to know what to do first LOL. Loving your piece which I feel is perfectly executed especially those quirky letters and the fragment in the centre is a lovely addition. Enjoy your week. Tracy x x

Linda, your piece looks fantastic! Love your background and all of the placement of you letters. Umm...BLACK looks good!! :) Funny that you had to go through Claudine's entire line of paints to get to the black. haha Love the orange pop against the black. <3 Candy

Well I DO like it, and think it is a stunning gem of a piece of art, but if you really don't, leave it, think about it, then return to it. Sorted!

Too many ideas is a good thing, I think! Love your outcome. The gorgeous stamping on the red piece is a great anchor for all the cool letters/words.
