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!
