Hello everyone..

Half way through our new monthly Mixed Media challenge at Where the heART is  with the theme " Add Text"..

Now you really don't have to do mixed media if you are not comfortable with it..and you can enter cards and anything you want really..just go for it..fabulous sponsors too..

My inspiration piece for our midway reminder is another canvas...using a photo of my G/kids taking a flying leap into the unknown..

Such great happy kids...some brave to tuck the legs up.. one..not too sure..but she has such long legs to tuck up anyway..


Lots of netting, mesh, butterflies , and flowers and of course corrugated card...not happy unless I'm cutting up boxes...

A side view..

And a view of how thick the layers are...

So there we go..go get all painty and messy and rip some boxes up and go for much fun..

Thanks again for stopping by..

That is the BEST photograph...what a blast! Excellent midway inspiration piece Chrissy. If the ink and paint and glue and stickies don't make you giddy, surely man handling boxes will do the trick!! Your canvas is fantastic and what a great memory to preserve.

Such a fabulous way to display your wonderful photo Chrissy! Bet you had as much fun making this as they're having in the photo! Love all the texture, the colours are perfect...the splashes of red and beautiful blue butterflies catch the eye without detracting from the focal photo! Love the flowers and leaves too!

Fantastic combo of layers and textures and your design suits this cheerful photo so well. This would make a lovely personal Christmas gift, but I totally understand if you want to keep this for yourself too.
