WW1 April Challenge


Over 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. 

 I also added some book pages tags that I tore from the book. Destructive I know, but worth it. I am constantly searching thrift shops for old books and bits to use in my scrapbooking.

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.

Another awesome challenge from WW1. They truly stretch my ability to create. Every time I think it's going to be a disaster of a colour for me ....... it turns out better than ever.

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.

Thank you for popping by and checking out my blog.
