Eclectic Ellapu....It's a man thing for the Purple team


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.
