LETS GET STARTED..NEW CHALLENGE ON THE BLOCK..



Hello Everyone..

The day has come and time to get started on a new challenge at Where the heART is  a new challenge blog all about MIXED MEDIA...canvases...cards...bottles...anything you like can have mixed media added to it...and it sooo relaxing...

Our theme for this month is ..."USE SOME TXT "





This is my effort using an image from our Sponsor...The Chubby Mermaid  ...



The image, I would say is an adult colouring page.. lots of swirls and details and not too sure where I going..

The canvas was painted and I added modelling pasted with stencils..paint splatterings...cheery lynn swirls and flowers with buttons..and silver hearts..



Here's another shot...the background of the image was so white and just couldn't get it to sink into the canvas, so coloured behind the butterfly with eyeshadow...the only thing that didn't make the colours bleed.

Added gems to the tail, and about three thousand buttons around as a frame..well, not really three thousand but felt like it by the time I was satisfied.

So there you go....please click the link HERE   and go check out the blog and see the amazing things my teamies have created..then go get some paint or inks and just let it dribble all over the place...add some paste and stencils,..then flowers and metals things and just go silly..
