Hello again and welcome to my inspiration for our new challenge today over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog which has the theme of Anything Goes!
I've made another art panel with my favourite nature inspired theme.
I started off by painting my A4 size white/greyboard panel with yellow and green acrylic paints which I applied with sponges. Being white there's no need for gesso!
I then used 2 That's Crafty Dinky Stencils with a darker grren and orange paint to apply the pattern for my background. A little in your face, but I like it!
Next I painted 3 of the white/greyboard atcs with a mix of orange, yellow and green paints and stencilled these with contrasting colour and the same 2 stencils.
I then stamped the bird (Carabelle Studio Every Bird) with Archival Jet Black ink on white stamping card, added a little colour to the beak and branch and cut the image out.
I next stamped some of the daisy heads from the Tim Holtz Flower Garden stamp set on white card and added colour with pencils before cutting them out. I stamped the leafy stalks on green painted paper and cut these out.
I added the atc panels to mats of a darker green card to make them stand out and glued them to my panel. I added all my cut out images and finished off with text from the Carabelle set stamped on white card with black ink and trimmed to a panel.
I may not have time to post again before the big day so I'd like to wish everyone a very Haapy Christmas and all the best for 2016.
See you soon!
