Have you seen the new challenge at More Than Words yet? The challenge is to be inspired by the word 'Nature' and to use an animal image or print on your layout, canvas, art journal page or planner page. Easy!
I was inspired by the bright and bold colours on the challenge board and came up with this:
I was also inspired by the design I saw on a t-shirt in a surf shop.
I first painted my bright colours onto a sheet of white cardstock. These are mostly Dylusions sprays.
I then took a second sheet of white cardstock and cut out the frame so the colours showed through from underneath. I handpainted the title, layered it on the colours and cut it out. I then added my embellishments in colours that co-ordinated with the lines of colours underneath. I'm not sure if this description makes sense so I'll just show you in photos!
Red embellishments on the red layer of colour.
The green layer merging into the blue layer.....
....... and merging into the purple layer.
There's lots of stitching on this - irregular black stitching around the photos and white stitching around the outside frame.
This walk was amazing - butterflies and gorgeous flowers were everywhere!
I hope you can join in the challenge this month. You can find the details here.
