Hello Hello ...!
I am LOVING the November Color Challenge for Lindys!!
Such beautiful and earthy colors and ideal for creating this little chipboard Birdhouse from Imaginarium Designs! I used the November sets to create this little number!
I coated the chipboard with gesso first so that the sprays didn't sink into the chipboard and then used a Stencil Girl stencil to add some texture.
I used two colors for the birdhouse ....Bucket o'Blood Red- Moon Shadow Mist & Canna Lily Burnt Orange
The chipboard leaves were colored with Greased Lightnin' Greenand the chipboard branches were double embossed withOakleaf Olive (double dipping is where you head set the powder then while it is still hot, dip it back into the powder to create a super thick glossy coat)
The metal leaves were coated in Prima Clear Gesso and then I sprayed them with Golden Sleigh Bells ... it just gives them the sweetest glimmery sheen
When I put the feet on the birdhouse, I couldn't find any brass brads ... only yellow ... so here is a quick tutorial on how I colored them ... so easy! So I then added someGilded Burgundy Brass embossing powder to the feet to match!
So I hope that you like it!
It was really fun and simple to make!
Kraft Plus has a fabulous challenge this month ...
This month we want you to be inspired by the artist P!nk
*PLEASE NOTE* The graphic below is NOT the challenge. The COLOUR pink is NOT the challenge.
The challenge is to be inspired by P!nk, the artist.
Maybe one of her album covers? It could be a song title, or lyrics? Maybe you went to one of her concerts? It is okay to be inspired by the photo.. BUT there must be something about P!nk on your layout. Please tell us when you upload your entry what exactly about P!nk inspired you.
Here is my take on it!
I’m not a big fan of Pink – I’m guessing I’m one of the 12 people in Australia that have not been to her concerts but after looking through some of her song lyrics, this one screamed out at me! I found the song (Crystal Ball) on YouTube and had a listen and it’s just beautiful. I then had a look through her album covers and found this variation of her ‘The Truth About Love’ Album Cover and worked from there. I took inspiration fromAmanda Hall and printed my image direct to Kraft, added some background inking and then layered with vellum. The Imaginarium Designs alphas were ideal and I coated them in Black Golden fluid Acrylic then added some splatters of Toto’s Tornado Black from Lindy Stamp Gang!
