Bless Your Nest...AMMCC9 31

Hi there! I'm so happy the weekend is here. It's Fall break for Connor and Meredith already and we are headed to San Diego and Los Angeles Saturday morning for a few days of fun :) 

It's time for an all new Mixed Media Color Challenge. Thanks so much to all who joined along with challenge #8 ~ once again, the gallery was full of so many beautiful projects! For nearly the next two weeks, we will be playing with the following color combination: pink, red and blue:
For this challenge, I was inspired to create a project featuring a variety of die cuts, stamps and texture:
To begin, I added texture to the background using the Brick Wall Stencil along with texture paste. After applying paint, I was ready to embellish. Peeking out from behind the chipboard birdcage is a clock that was stamped using Timeless:
I added an elegant die cut butterfly that was made using one of the dies from Fancy Butterflies along with a pretty rose blossom:
I adhered a trio of store bought flowers along with a pretty crocheted one made by my sweet sister Tina :) 
I gave the naked chipboard bird's next a coat of gesso followed with a coat of crackle medium. For the title, I stamped a sentiment from Inspired By Birds on a die cut sentiment strip then doodled around the perimeter:
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit ~ I hope I have inspired you to mix things up! Please hop on over to A Mixed Media Color Challenge for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some awesome inspiration from Sue!
I'll be back tomorrow with more to share for the MFT October teasers Day 4 ~ hope to see you then!
Be Sweet ;)
