I decided to play once again in the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge! This week's theme was to create some sort of a collage. I loved the picture, but I have to be honest, this week's challenge, was just that, a challenge.
I don't consider myself an "artsy" card maker. I admire people who use Gesso and paints and such and get beautiful results. But I decided to step out of my comfort zone, pull out my Gesso and various papers and get to work. I chose patterned papers that went together, including some vintage book papers. I randomly glued them to a piece of card stock and then trimmed the whole thing into a square. I gave it a coating of the Gesso and let it dry. Once it was dry I used a Heidi Swapp circles template and texture paste to add some random circles. It's subtle but it's there if you look closely. ;)
I painted the circles with a hint of gold paint to bring out a bit of the yellow color.
I added my main image of the bird and added tiny postage stamps, flowers, sequins, and a star stick pin.
I'm not sure if I really "nailed it on the head" but it was certainly fun trying! Sometimes it's good to spread your wings a bit and try new things!
My house is calling me...... "Clean me...Clean me!" So I guess I should run! ;)
Have a great day!!
