A Place to Start - July 2020

Our theme at A Place to Start this month is Flowers.   I have made my card from things in my stash.

I saw this technique on a utube featured on Facebook, naturally I can no longer find the details to be able to give credit for the idea.  One of the reasons I don't like FB is because it is never in chronological order, once seen forever gone to cyber space.

The lady was making tags and called them skeleton tags, thought I would give the technique ag go in a card

The diecut if place between the card base and the patterned paper to give the effect of this is what is within the card. (Hope that makes sense)

This photo shows the card open and the detail of the diecut

Pearly Sparkles, 3 of a kind July Challenge

This month's challenge at Pearly Sparkles is three of a kind.  I did wonder what I was going to make and then decided on a mixed media art journal page.

The background has been painted with Acrylic Chalk Paint, coloured pencils, fineline marker.
The birds and the quote are both stamps.

The trees were ones I have had in my stash for long long time, they were part of a digital kit (can't remember which) that I had printed, still had some left over.

I did try a few different things with the trees, then decided on a collage of paper napkins (small pieces twisted into bows.
