Whimsical Designs "Mix It Up" Challenge


Last week, at Whimsical Designs we asked you to "Alter It" and we received some fabulous entries!!! This week we are asking you to "Mix It Up", create any project and use some type of mixed media.

Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is Tabitha's Designs and you can have a chance to win 2 digi paper packs of your choice!!


For my project I started with a small canvas. I purchased a digital image at A Day For Daisies of a girl flying a kite. I printed her on a peachy colored card stock and on a page I had torn from a thrift store book. I used green floss to hand stitch some grass. I attached her and her hair to the canvas using Modge Podge. I cut her dress from a scrap piece of material I had and glued small sections of it to the canvas so that it would look like the wind was blowing it. Her kite was printed on patterned paper, fussy cut, glued to the canvas along with some twine for the kite string. I also covered the kite with glossy accents. I stamped the sentiment using Stephanie's Whimsical Fun Vol.1. I punched 2 tiny butterflies out and glued down their bodies only. As a finishing touch I sprayed the whole thing with Perfect Pearls mist.




Supplies used: canvas; card stock - peach; page of a book; scraps of patterned paper; scrap of material; green floss; twine - Liz's Paper Loft Boutique; butterfly punch - Fiskars; stamp from Whimsical Fun Vol 1 by Whimsical Designs; ink Jet Black by Archival; Modge Podge; Perfect Pearls Mist.

Now, please, head on over to Whimsical Designs and take a look at what the Design Team has come up with for inspiration!!!
