Good morning my lovelies, its inspiration time over at We Love 2 Create and you've still got a whole week to be in with a chance of winning some gorgeous goodies from Premium Craft Brands. Its a nice easy theme, 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes' and as always my teamies have created some beautiful artwork to inspire you. I've altered an mdf birdhouse for my DT offering. I just love the blues in the PanPastel range, they are soooooo pretty!
I've used white gesso to prime the mdf and then got busy with lots of Ultramarine Blue Tint PanPastel and a little ultramarine blue and some White Coarse PanPastel medium which is lovely and shimmery in real life. I've used a background stamp from Chocolate Baroque, stamped with versamark and dusted with Ultramarine Blue PanPastel. I've also added some stencilling for a little texture, using a flower stencil and texture paste coloured with more Ultramarine Blue PanPastel.
To decorate the birdhouse, I've stamped the butterfly, from the Premium Art Brands 'Postcard' stamp set and some Dreamees flowers with versamark and dusted with my PanPastels. I cut everything out and arranged it on the birdhouse, adding some glitter glue to the centre of the flowers. I've added some Pewter PanPastels around all the edges and decorated the roof with some lace, ribbon and a metal filigree butterfly.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Altered Eclectics: anything goes
Brown Sugar: anything but a card
Crafty Time: anything but a card
Petal Lu: anything goes
Rhedd's Creative Spirit: anything goes
Thanks so much for popping by today, hope to see you again soon
