Summer Garden

It's time for the another Craft-Room Challenge and it's my turn to choose the theme. We've been having some lovely sunny weather here in the UK and the gardens are in full bloom, so my theme for this challenge is A SUMMER GARDEN.

The winner of the challenge will be chosen by the team and will receive goodies from Tanda Stamps and Woodware Stamps.

I've made a wall hanging with lots of summery flowers for my DT piece.

I stencilled some flowers with a PaperArtsy mask and Grunge Paste then I painted it with white gesso, I then painted it with different coloured acrylic paint. I stencilled the leaves on the background with green acrylic paint and drew round the leaves with black pencil, I also used coloured pencil on the pink flowers. I stamped and drew some small flowers but only a couple are showing. I cut some plant pots with a Sizzix die and added a lot of quilled flowers. I don't know who made the stamp that I used for the sign. I added some ladybirds, butterflies and a wooden bird that I'd painted.

The rest of my team mates have made some beautiful samples and they'd love you to visit the Craft-Room to take a look.
