Good day! Can you believe it is August already? Yikes. The challenge for the purple team over at Eclectic Ellapu for this month is "it's a man thing." I don't know about everyone else, but I tend to struggle with masculine creations. With that said, I am super happy with how this came out!
To begin, I used a piece of water color paper and mixing green and brown brushos, I painted the background of the main image panel....after I got the colors the way I wanted them, I let it dry. Next, I spritzed the panel with water to add interest. I am too impatient to wait for things to dry so I used my heat gun. I stamped the wheat in versamark and embossed in champagne. I framed the image with white and then black cardstock. The larger panel is a piece of dp from Tim Holtz. I had originally planned to use the opposite side of that dp...it has musical notes. However, I put the glue on that side like a ding-a-ling. This side works, too! To finish, I embellished with brown embroidery thread and a wooden button. The sentiment is from Unity Stamps.
I hope you can take the time and check out everyone's creations here and check out the Pink team's theme, too...which is floral.
