March challenge - Rhedd's Creative Spirit

Hi all,

March. Not my favourite month of the year, but I do love the fact that the daffodils are out. Better weather ahoy!

So, time for something a little more colourful. It seems the majority of my makes for Rhedd's Creative Spirit tend towards the neutral or monochrome colours, so this time I have a little something different for you.

One mixed media canvas:

I used a fabulous TH butterfly die, and some texture paste through a Dylusions stencil. A little bit of corrugated card from a cannibalised box and a chipboard border from the Pound Shop add a little more detail.
The sentiment and a little cheese cloth lighten it up a little bit, along with a lightly inked white flower.

Most of the colour was done with Dylusions sprays, though the butterfly was coloured with Distress inks.

I added lots of seed beads, including to the centre of the flower.

The entire canvas was misted lightly with some cosmic shimmer spray to add a little glimmer.

And that's it. Hope you're feeling inspired to come and play along with our challenge this month. Remember, anything altered art goes!

Have a fantastical day,

This is really cool, what great layers and dimension and the color pop - well it pops! Gorgeous. I got so tickled at you saying you too have a deluxe scrabble board. Awesome! So nice to have the board swivel, right!?!? He he, hugs, Autumn
