Craft Barn challenge change/truth

A little late with this one and also not as much thinking time as I have been taken up with 50th birthdays and trips to Paris. I am a lucky girl. Anyway I chose truth and a quote by a much missed fictional character Gregory House. My Husband and I use to watch it together and loved his witty one liners and this made me giggle.

The eyes can mislead, the smile can lie but shoes always tell the truth.  House

I covered the paper in new PaperArtsy chalk paint I bought at Ally Pally at the weekend. I used chartreuse and seaweed for the base and chutney to make the border plus a splash of dylusions. After a couple of failed attempts at getting the stamping in the correct place (this is my 3rd go) I decided to paint a separate piece of paper to stamp eyes and smiles on. Finally I stamped a film strip over them and cut them out. Next were the shoes. I added alphabet washi tape and the quote. I am pleased with the result, almost, but hay ho. Enjoy.
