Been in a crafting rut for over a month... definitely producing, but nothing I'm loving... so I really focused on my personal aesthetic-- this is close! Has an element of nature and a bold mixed-media background, using all vintage parts... boom!
Supplies and notes:
- Catalog card, seam binding, and owl clipping all old. As. Heck.
- Tim's StampAnon quilty set. I punched out some stamps that hadn't been used... always fun! The seam binding was stamped with Ranger Archival in Jet Black; quilt squares stamped using Spiced Marmalade, Peacock Feathers, and Black Soot DI, sprayed with water for a more blended watercolor effect.
- Transparent Ranger glossy modeling paste spread over parts through Tim's Honeycomb stencil
- Once the texture paste was dry, I inked the card up with Wild Honey DI.
- The owl is from an old pocket guide, I believe-- he was already cut out and in a bag of snippets.
I used the color inspiration from The Color Throwdown:
I would also like to share this at the STAMPlorations Mixed Media/ Stencil Sunday challenge for February:
If anyone is in a crafty rut, I encourage you to really go back to the basics of what you love! This was immensely satisfying. I feel totally reinvigorated. I know: all because of a little owl!
