Hello all, I hope you had a lovely weekend and managed to fit in some crafting as I did - the first time in a while I got some bonus time too due to unforeseen circumstances which meant I couldn't do the other stuff planned in - not that I'm complaining!
Today's post is to tell you about the new challenge over at Make My Monday and teamie Joan has picked Earth Day as the theme so we'd like to see your creations with this in mind or on the theme of nature.
I decided to take the Earth theme literally and do some recycling as I can't think of anything more appropriate for Earth Day than that.
Here's what I created and underneath you'll see what I recycled to make it.
I covered a piece of greyboard with some of my vintage music score and then brushed on some white gesso and then applied a little pink and green acrylic paint.
I then cut a panel of the corrugated packaging and brushed on some gesso and green paint for a grungy effect.
I die cut some floral shapes from the tea box with a Marianne die set and glued some of these to the painted corrugated panel and glued this to the music score panel.
I next chose one of the birds from my bargain illustration bird book which I acquired in a charity shop in Margate. This one is a Rock Thrush and I picked him because the colours go well with my project. I cut him out and glued him to the panel.
As a final touch I added a little more pink paint to the free area and stamped on the text from the Dina Wakley Scribbly Birds set with Archival Watering Can ink I added some paper string to the top to make the hanger.
Have a great day and a lovely week.
Thanks go to Marina for pointing me in the direction of Inkspirational Challenge as it seems my creation might just fit the photo inspiration due to the colours, bird (from the birds eggs) and the kraft packaging.
