I’m back with this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges challenge! This week we have a fabulous inspiration piece to use for our projects so be sure to check out the Crazy 4 Challenges blog for all the details.
I decided to do a mixed media piece for my project today. I made a printer’s tray last year to hang on the wall and it was picked up for publication and is still in Utah! I doubt I’ll get it back in time to display this year so this will fill in for it. I started with an 8 x 10 canvas board, applied a layer of gesso and then laid down color with my Gelatos. I stamped some images from MPD Timeless, MPD Distressed Background Blocks, LJD Art Expression Text, Inspired by Caged Bird, and LJD Primitive Pumpkins, added a MPD Concentric Circles “moon” and lots of Die-namics elements: Die-namics Spider Web, Die-namics Flat-Bottom Clouds, Die-namics Cornstalk, Die-namics LJD Primitive Pumpkins, Die-namics Sheltering Tree and Leaf Trio, Die-namics Barbed Wire Fence.
After I had it framed, I added a Die-namics Spider Web in the corner of the frame with the little spider from Die-namics Paper Bag Peek-a-Boos attached.
And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you, including October’s guest designer, Lisa Elton!
