Today for Country View Crafts and my first make for the month, I have designed a
Collage/Mixed media picture.
The Challenge set by my lovely teamie Donna is 'Simply Scenic'.
I am also entering this piece into Mixed Media World Challenge : Use Bright Colours.
I have to admit and say I slumped my shoulders and wailed silently,( perhaps not so silently) when I read the theme.
A challenge is a call to engage in a contest, I have to acknowledge this and stop uttering prolonged inarticulate mournful cries and get myself into the zone of blogging with some purpose and contribute enthusiastically to my followers; my intention is to enthuse you all to participate in this challenge, so if my mere utterances do not move you perhaps my creation here will.
So with this sense of purpose that has been so lacking of late I produced this little picture, it took me a few weeks, but I was determined to make it into a piece that I would be happy with.
Determination won hands down.
I was so pleased I framed it.
I found a scene on the web and roughly drew up the house and trees.
Painted up the Bg first.
The house is made up from scraps of painted cardstock and bark.
The trees are made from crumpled up tissue paper, painted and stamped.
I sketched in some flowers and added the stitching.
Matted the pic.
Made a little bird from Polyshrink, and placed it in the left hand corner.
Once it was framed and hung I thought it needed something else; I always thing my creations need additions!
I added the Green line border...now it is complete.You can click on the pics to see the detail.
Of course you can hop across here to join in and view my fellow teamies interpretations.
I just know you will be inspired by them all.
Have a great week,
