Week 9's challenge can be found on page 42, Distress Crackle. This week instead of an ATC, I went in a different direction!
I looked around, but didn't see a nest, but I am sure there must have been one nearby because normally hummingbirds do not usually get as close as these two were to me! Thankfully, they didn't get any closer or I might have nightmares (a la Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds") lol
Oh, I did manage to get a picture of my project too!
The wood frame is from Ikea that I painted with acrylic paint, after that dried I followed page 42 using Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Crackles. On the ship's wheel I used Weathered Wood Distress Crackle. The seaweed is again leftover scraps from Charlene's journal and the sand is from MuddPuddles. The Mermaid image is a Microsoft Office Clipart, it's hard to tell in the photo but I used Sakura Glaze pens on her hair, clam shells and scales. On her necklace I used Stickles. She is cut out and mounted on foam tape.
Have a fabulous weekend! I know I will - my youngest daughter is coming home with her fiance and my future darling grandkids and we will be celebrating their engagement with family and friends!
PS As I wait INPATIENTLY for my daughter to arrived I was checking out blogs and realized my frame will work for the Gingersnap Creations Challenge 66: Paint since Distress Crackle is a type of paint! I LOVE it when one project works for multiple challenges!
