Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes at WL2C

Good morning folks, I'm back with my second post today and this project is for our new challenge over at We Love 2 Create where our theme is 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes'. As always there is some fabulous crafty stash waiting for our lucky winner from Premium Craft Brands and you don't have to use our products to play along!

I've upcycled a cheap picture frame using my Pan Pastels for my DT project this time around. A began with a coat of white gesso and then some crackle paint. Once that was all dry I applied PanPastels in shades of Yellow and Bright Yellow Green and added some brown for a more distressed look. 

The little mouse peeking out from the leaf is made of resin (from the Trinket Parlour) I primed him with matte medium and then painted him with acrylic paints from Indigo Blu. I made a woodgrain background using texture paste through a stencil and then coloured this with Raw Umber and Burnt Sienna PanPastels. I gave it a coat of gloss medium to seal it and give a little shine. 

The flowers are made from Foamiran which I die cut and coloured with gelatos and acylic paint. The leaves were die cut from kraft glassine and again, coloured with PanPastels.

I love this little mouse, he's so cute! 

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

2 Crafty Critter Crazies: anything goes with a critter
Creatalicious: anything goes/ add flowers
Creates and Makes: springtime
