On the fifth of each month we start a new challenge at
Our challenges are, as always, anything goes,
with pink as an optional extra.
Hope to see lots of you joining in, you have 4 weeks
to link to us!
I made an A3 mixed media piece. The background was gessoed,
painted with light grey and some madder red, and textured with a brayer.
The Banksy stencil is a freebie from Stencilry.org. The tulips
are from a paper napkin, applied with matte medium. The dots were also added
with a stencil, as was the text.
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin.
For Tag Tuesday, Chrissie's 'faces' challenge, I made a cow tag.
The cow is from a photo taken near here last year. I love watching
cows, and just love their eyes. My mum always called me cow face
when I was a kid - believe me, that was one of her nicer
sayings, the majority were not printable! But it never
worried me as I just like cows! I painted
my version of the face, and then digitally added a filter to
give it more interest. After printing out the image I placed it
on a piece of glassine paper, which had been given a lick
of blue metallic paint from Inca Gold, and then
embossed. I made 2 rows of stitching to hold the tag
and the 2 different backings together. I am also linking
On Sunday we had a nice sunrise, the rest of the week has been
cold and wet!
Love this idea for a garden path:
