mixed media monthly challenge #39 – photo inspiration

hello everyone

today i am here to share with you some mid month inspiration for the August – Mixed Media Monthly challenge #39 – Inspiration Photo!

this month we had the pleasure of partnering up with Indigo Blu

IndigoBlu is a manufacturer of – High Quality “Quintessentially English” Rubber Stamps, paints, stencils, etc…

i had received  the Floral Fantasy (http://www NULL.indigoblu NULL.com/rubber-stamps-c3/a5-rubber-stamps-c5/floral-fantasy-a5-red-rubber-stamp-by-kay-halliwell-sutton-p1750)and the Country House (http://www NULL.indigoblu NULL.com/rubber-stamps-c3/a6-rubber-stamps-c7/country-house-a6-red-rubber-stamp-by-kay-halliwell-sutton-p1968)set and for my first challenge i had used Floral Fantasy….. for my second i wanted to use both!

but before I go further, here is the graphic for this month and if you decide to play in our challenge, remember to add it to your post if you want to be in with a chance to win our sponsor’s prize! You can read all about it HERE (https://mixedmediamc NULL.blogspot NULL.com/)

now when looking at the County House stamp i couldn’t not see it as a door to a fairy home!  so i started my art journal page by stamping and layering my flowers on one corner, the fairy door on the bottom and then taping off a tree i started making a fairy home

i mixed a bit of paint with texture paste and applied through the stencil

and then i coloured my tree using some watercolour pencils

added a few more flowers and butterflies to the page
