Dear Crafty friends, Even though I had some holidays, June has been a super creative month for me -I am so happy about that !- and since my last post, I had the time to create one last project for another challenge, the ArtPlayGround challenge "Go with the flow". This months theme was all about movement and pastel tones.   I altered a wooden box for a friend's birthday and made it a Mermaidy treasure box.  For this challenge, we had to choose at least two colors within the palette ArtPlayGround proposed.

Shabby chic mixed media canvas / Toile ronde shabby chic (Mixed Media)

Hello Mixed Media lovers ! I will share with you my last project. In my stash, I had a round canvas that I started last year but didn't like : I painted the canvas with some violet-green opal magic paint by Finnabair, added a big flower through a Donna Downey stencil with modelling paste and paintend this one in lilac. After that, I got stuck, didn't really like the result and didn't know where I was going. So I left it aside and didn't touch it for almost a year. Until I saw an Insta post from Lemoncraft, sharing a very nice paper... [Lire la suite]
