Mixed media card for CC3C Challenge #4: Together

Hi to You,

Series of Compendium of Curiosities challenges has already proceeded to number four. This time we were asked to use techniques introduced on page 49 in Compendium of Curiosities Vol III. Here's what I came up with:




It's funny how the creative process sometimes takes a totally different path than how you originally plan. First when I had decided to go with the star pattern I had visioned to make a sparkling birthday card with bright shades of blue, yellow and red. But I run into difficulties with selecting the additional images, and after some re-thinking the end result is a vintage themed card with earth tones. I still like the outcome a lot, especially knowing that vintage is really not my thing at all! :D


In addition to the texture paste I have used inks, water colors, markers, and a white chalk pencil. Playing with several media on a single project is so much fun!


I wish you a nice week. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have time to leave a comment :)

      Joskus käy niin, että suunnitelma B on parempi kuin A, ja parhaat jutut syntyvät erehdyksen kautta :D
