SOUTHERN GIRLS DT - ANYTHING GOES



Hello everyone...

Well, am I glad I got up extra early today as I think I'm on dial up...my internet is so slow this morning and took me absolutely ages to log on and load up..but I'm on now..so lets get going.

A new challenge is starting up over at Southern Girls  and this fortnight it is Anything goes..

We have two fabulous sponsors..All Dressed Up and Crafts and Me..

I used this gorgeous image from Crafts and Me called Perched at Dusk


He is all coloured up with Faber Castell pencils and some Reno Art markers..




I started with an A4 sheet of water colour paper and stencilled my beautiful new leaf stencil from my friend Annie [thank you..love it]



Using a sponge dauber I added spots using the same colour [SU - Old Olive] and then a vine stamp..which I love very much too..[photo missing]


Stencilled some grunge prints and added texture with a stencil and modelling paste...


Added my bird after fussy cutting him out....


A hessian rose with a sentiment  and he was done...

A side view with the sun just peeping around the corner and the shadow of the plant cascading down..


Some photos are missing..they just wont load...but there is my finished project and I hope you like it..

Thanks so much for stopping by...

Luv CHRISSYxx
