Challenge #1..Classic Design Team Open Challenge



Hello Everyone..

And here we are...Challenge #1 for a new challenge blog..

CLASSIC DESIGN TEAM OPEN CHALLENGE  and I'm so thrilled to be  part of this fabulous team which is an Anything goes challenge.. and runs a monthly challenge...so plenty of time to create and join in...

We have a wonderful line up of sponsors and first up we have the lovely MISS DAISY STAMPS  adorable cute images by Kathryne..who allowed the DT to an image each to play with, and I chose.

Charlie Fishing on a log   and he was perfect for doing a mixed media canvas....




There he is, sitting on his log fishing away with his wee buddy the frog.

I printed Charlie out, fussy cut the image, and the log got the masking tape treatment for the  bark effect.




For the water I used modelling paste through a stencil and painted it blue.and had a go at drawing the bullrushes on the waters edge....



The background was coloured with Gelatos and the trees were stamped with a Firecracker design stamp...and just left patches in the sky for clouds..shaded them a bit with grey pastel..


Tied a piece of string to his fishing line and added the " Fishing Buds"sign..
and after a bit more shading here and there I was done..

So there we go..a great challenge blog HERE






 and a wonderful sponsor too..HERE


Thanks so much for stopping by and all your wonderful support you show me..really do appreciate you all..

See you tomorrow..

Luv CHRISSYxx
