In the Meadow



Our new challenge over at Stamps and Stencils for the next month is hosted by Rachel. 
She wants to see your interpretation of the theme In the Meadow which could involve lots of grasses, wildlife or whatever you think.
Just make sure you use stamps, stencils or both in your make! 
The design team have created some amazing inspirational projects, so please pop over and take a look.
I hope you will join us as I’m looking forward to seeing all of your creations!

My take on the theme is a  page in an old book I use for an art journal.
I made some masterboard earlier and a piece of it served as my background.
I was inspired by the look of a meadow in a hot, summer day.



That's why I first  made the shadows of the plants with black gesso and the stencil.


The shadows were outlined with white gelly roll pen.


The ,,proper" flowers were stenciled, fussy cut and glued to the background.
I outlined them too.
I attached the base to my page and finished it off by adding some stamping and some stickers.

Dorothy


Today we kick off the new challenge over at Try it on Tuesday
This time our theme is: Recycle Something
We are sure you will all be able to find something[ small or large]  that you could re-use in some way.
The style, mediums and materials you use is entirely up to yourselves.
Be sure to tell us what you used.

Please pop to the main blog to see some fantastic inspiration from my teamies.

                                        Pop this on your blog to find us fast!


My take on the theme is an altered doll.
Please meet Dorothy straight from The Wizard of Oz.






Dorothy is 11 cm tall and was made from a broken dolly, a small tin  and lots of  trash and oddments from my stash.


I  have used gel heavy body matt to put all the pieces together.



You can open the small tin and see  Dorothy's inside.





I decided to give her  two queer legs.




Hope you like her as much as I do....

We enjoyed using the board ,  what will inspire you?

Will it be ....Spring,  the colours, the blossom, the birds  etc. etc.

My take on the theme is a journal page inspired by our moodboard and blooming fruit trees.

Mums the Word



Today is the start of another new challenge at Try it on Tuesday  so I hope you will join us there for a 'Mums the Word Challenge'.
First thing to do is to visit TIOT to see what the rest of the team have made and also to check on our rules to be sure you are following them.

My take on the theme is a card I made for my Mum. 
Let's hope she will enjoy it ;))
As usual you can follow some of my stages in the process:


I started with making backgrounds from some scraps I have die cut from some rests of paper.

Next I've given it a good wash of heavy gesso.


Then I put some platinum crackle texture paste, when it was dry it was distressed  with brown ink.


I stamped the background with a crackle stamp, then I started to built the focal point.

To finish my card off I added some flowers, leaves, some moss, die cuts and metal embellishments.
I also added some colour with Dylusions paints.

I am also linking my card to:
mix it up: make your own background
vintage journey: treasure - lots of treasured things used here beginning from a resin frame, a metal bow, old turquoise earrings, some moss picked up in the forest and dried etc..
