bless our nest 41

Mona Pendleton | Monday, February 29, 2016 @ 9:00 PM | , , ,

Hi there! There's a new challenge up on The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge blog! This month we are asking you to create a project based on the Photo Inspiration shown below:
The eggs in the photo were my source of inspiration:
I was inspired to create a mixed media canvas featuring a trio of eggs inside of a homemade twig heart. I added lots of texture using a sand texture paste along with a stencil:




Here are the twigs that I gathered from my backyard to create the nest :)
I'm also linking this canvas up to the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you enjoyed my project! Please be sure to visit The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge site for loads of awesome inspiration from the DT and for complete details on how to share your mixed media creativity with us! Remember, this month we have a sponsor who is offering a fantastic prize to one lucky player! Like the lottery, you have to play to win!
Be Sweet ;)
