The Lost Garden of Eve...

Heylo everyone. I'm here with a post that is very special to me. I've been in love with mixed media ever since I started crafting. But I always held off attempting it as I wanted it to be special - conceptually. I'm glad I did that, because I'm really proud of what I ended up creating. 

My mixed media project is also a part of a few important challenges that I'm participating in; and hence the colour scheme.

I've been a fan of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays ever since I watched my first mixed media project Youtube video by Arlene. Her video is also a reason I was inspired to take up crafting and re-ignite my passion for handmade articles.

For this challenge, we were to use specific colours from the following graphic:

Since I did not have the exact same colours, I got inspired by them to create teal and turquoise-like colours from the Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays that I already had. At the end of the post, you can see a list of Lindy's sprays that I've used.

Challenge #2: More than Words

Word Inspiration - SPECIAL
Creative Challenge - something OLD, something NEW, something BORROWED or something BLUE

I was inspired by the word 'Special' in the way that I ended up creating my first serious mixed media canvas attempt and it's always going to be special to me (as already explained).

Something OLD - the canvas that I made this project on, I had purchased many years ago (initially to paint on it - since I paint as a hobby) but I never got around to using it. I just stored it thinking I would create something really unique on it.

Something NEW - some of the chipboard pieces and certain Lindy's sprays used here are from my most recent craft purchase.

Something BLUE - my background has a hint of blue here and there (along with turquoise) and some of the flowers I've used are blue in colour.

Something BORROWED - the Tim Holtz miniature bottle is actually borrowed from my niece :p who in turn had got them for her Harry Potter school project.

I hope you guys like what I created :).
