April - does that mean even more showers lol. I think we have had more than our fair share of those and winds.
It is time for our new challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and as you know every month is Anything goes as long as it is Mixed media, altered etc so NO CARDS please. Anyway I have put together a mixed media canvas. I used the back side of a canvas for the framed effect. I painted, wiped off sprayed allsorts of sprays and micas over it until I was finally pleased with it. I pulled back the edges of the canvas and tore it in some areas. I wiped turquoise inka gold round the edge of the canvas.
A colleague at work gave me her used up perfume bottle so I gave it a lick of paint and covered it using red, orange, purple, blue and green alcohol inks... Out came my old bits of jewelry and found the perfect piece for the bottle - an old pendant with a tassle. I wiped inka gold over the edge before adding to the bottle. I also used an owl pendant for the top left of the canvas. I used a green alcohol ink for him and edged with the inka gold. For the twigs and the flowers they once were part of a cheap bunch from the pound shop. The poppies were too vibrant so I dulled them down with more sprays lol.
Voila all finished.
I do hope you join us over at Rhedd's this month.
