Spring Hanging

It's the first of the month and time for a new challenge at Altered Eclectics, as always the theme is Anything Goes but it must be mixed media/altered art, no cards are allowed.

My DT piece this month is a Spring Hanging.

 I started by painting the base with gesso and then acrylic paint, then I stamped the flower to position it. I added a die cut and some lace and brushed some acrylic paint over them.

I stencilled some yellow dianmond shapes and stamped some script and mesh.

I sprinkled some brushos on the lace and die cut, then I sprayed some water and let it run, I also splattered watered down white acrylic paint.

I stamped the flower and rabbits onto card, the flower and leaves were stamped twice, I cut them out after colouring them with felt tips, then I adhered them to the hanging. I added some die cut letters, flowers and black gems in the centre of the flowers.

The stamps I used are
PaperArtsy/Lin Brown - the flower,
Crafty Individuals - the rabbits.

Why don't you check out the challenge, my team mates have made some fabulous samples.
