Show Us Your Stuff May challenge
Time for a new monthly challenge at Show Us Your Stuff, and this is the challenge I have created, so I hope you like it.
The idea behind this moodboard was to invoke feelings of happiness, with maybe a bit of fun with it.
I used a photo of great niece and nephew, taken at a recent family wedding. They enjoyed a big squishy hug together, so I took inspiration from the photo of the boy with the dog. I also took inspiration from the colours.
My background was a joint effort, created at a recent retreat. I sat at a table with the very talented Fiona Paltridge. Fiona and I were interested in purchasing the same gelli plate, of which there was only 1, so I allowed her to purchase it, I purchased another one later when available. Fiona very generously allowed me to use her brand new gelli plate, but this was the first time I had used one, so I had loads of fun creating with it. On this piece, I started with some paint, Fiona came along and added a bit more to it, I added a few pieces of paper she had gelli plated, but discarded. Fiona then stitched on it. I added the stamps. The background was so much fun to create, with one of my very favourite mixed media artists and friend.
The embellishing includes a Charms Creations emoji, which was just perfect.
I hope we see you join in on this challenge.
