MintOver at White With One this month they have "mint" as their challenge colour. I can't say I've ever used mint in a project, so again this was a daunting challenge, but a challenge is a challenge none the less. I hunted high and low in my scrap room to find all the mint I could.
I found a mint flower. This was my starting point. I had some white ones as well that I coloured with mint Reeves acrylic paint. I noticed the packaging that the white flowers came on was a beautiful Mint colour so I decided to use this too. I cut banner strips out of it and edged them in white Gesso. I also added some chipboard pieces that I coloured with white Gesso and a canvas tag I coloured using the reeves acrylic paint watered down.
The back ground is watered down acrylic Reeves paint over a stencil background. This time I used one of Tim Holtz's stencils "Bubble". I also speckled some watered down Black Gesso.
I love the soft colour of mint especially married with white. Good call WW1.
Oh and this was another "Scramping" piece. We have been spending the last couple of days camping at Black Cockatoo Bush Camp for Easter. A beautiful setting to inspire creativity.
