VERY PINK AND A TOTAL ACCIDENT!!



Hello Everyone...

WOW!! it is so cold here in NZ today with a cold Wintery blast from the south...so glad I live in the North Island on the east coast...still freezing but better than down South...

Onto todays project which I made a few weeks ago and just been staring at it....wondering...

Another mixed media canvas and...PINK...



Now this was not pink when I was sticking stuff down...it went pink when I added modge podge to seal things and the dye from the [cheap] papers spread all over the place...lol..so had to spray a bit more up the top to match.

I didn't have a chipboard window or die, so I stamped one and fussy cut it out..then coloured it with Distress inks..



The little birdie is chipboard and the nest is a  cardboard sticker...made a twine bow and you would think I was born with only thumbs as I find this so hard to do for some reason.

Memory box or Poppy leaves die and bubble stickers for the lettering....brick wall stencil..moulding paste [my old one...but have found beautiful soft paste now and very happy with it..]



All the flowers and gems etc are from my stash and they went pink too..so added more spray paint to even things up..

Anyway it is what it is and I had such fun doing it..

Challenges to enter....

Thanks so much for stopping by...off to find another jumper and have to go out soon to do the tea rounds and not a pleasant evening for that I assure you...

"My lady" is still going strong although we thought we were loosing her a week or so ago...I was so worried, but again, she bounced back and still going at 97...her memory is worse than ever and am I sure she is in her own bed, because she does recognise the dressing table...lol..

luv CHRISSYxx
