I am still focused on creating mixed media canvases... Gloria Stengl's newest challenge influenced this one. Have you checked out the new Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge? #2 is a Color Challenge with a twist. Pick the thing or things that you seem to hoard the most, and using the color scheme shown (blues), create a project that showcases your hoarded item or items.
I admit it, yes just sayin' it right out loud...I hoard all art supplies!
The first layer is a patchwork of various blue patterned paper napkins (paper napkins, my latest item to hoard LOL) which I Mod Podged onto the canvas and then shaded each "square". I used the shiny Mod Podge...I just love the shiny smooth feel of it. On that I overlaid a checker board of white lacy handmade paper for a bit more depth and texture. You can't see that additional texture in the photo but IRL it gives a bit more life to the whole. I have quite a stack of vintage music sheets in my hoard so let's add some of that. I try not to hoard punches but I do have a large basket and a drawer full of them, the butterflies and small blue flowers are punched from bits in my scrap box..another hoard of goodies.
Note: I am also entering this in the Make It Monday Challenge, the Love to Create Challenge
