The new challenge is up at Lets Get Shabby. Choose a piece of china and create a page, card or otp. project that has been inspired by your chosen cup, saucer, plate, vase etc. Head on over to the Lets Get Shabby blog HERE to get all the details on how to play along.
It's pretty obvious how the above image has inspired me. I've used an olive green and pink colour scheme, used doilies, birds and bird cage images. The birds and cages suggest a theme of "freedom", or lack of it, so have included a beautiful quote from Nelson Mandela.
This page started out as a piece of grey chipboard.It's then been gessoed, painted, papered, gessoed again, painted again, stamped, inked, masked, embossed and sprayed. Finally the images were added, the resin embellishments and doilies and finally ( as is my way) lots of cut out flowers.
