Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes at We Love 2 Create

Good morning my lovelies, we actually had some sunshine yesterday which was a welcome change from all the grey skies we've been used to. Hopefully Spring isn't too far away now. My project today is for our new challenge over at We Love 2 Create where our theme is 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes'. You don't have to use our products to enter and of course we have a lovely prize of some crafty goodies from Premium Craft Brands for our lucky winner too!

For my DT project I've altered a little MDF Toadstool house using my Pans and stamps/dies from Polkadoodles. I gave the mdf a coat of white gesso to start off with and once that was dry I coloured the top of the toadstool and the door with shades of Permanent Red PanPastel. I used the darker shades around the edges and the brightest red in the middle. I had a bit of an experiment with the stalk as I decided to put my stencil paste on tissue paper, let it dry and colour it rather than just applying it to the mdf directly. I thought this may be useful on 3d projects as the tissue is very flexible so I'll be doing that again in the future. I coloured the bricks with a little Burnt Sienna and Burnt Sienna Tint PanPastel. The flowers, light and fence were all die cut using dies from Polkadoodles. The windows were made using stamps from Pilakdoodles. I added some faux moss and a little brad for a door handle. I used white pearl Cosmic shimmer glue to create the spots on the roof of my little fairy house. I'm really annoyed with myself as I have a gorgeous Toadstool border die from Polkadoodles which would have been perfect with this make but I totally forgot all about it until I was writing this up! I'll have to remember next time.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge: X marks the spots or dots
Fussy and Fancy: Fussy and Fancy
Simon Says Stamp: Colour of love
Star Stampz: lots of red

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
