Good morning everyone, today starts the new challenge over on the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog. This month
we are celebrating 5 years with a month-long celebration by hosting a challenge every week for more chances to win. This
week we are sponsored by Morgan’s Art World. For my project today, I used the Old Roses Frame.
Typically, I make cards and hardly ever stray from cardmaking. Every now and then I’ll get into mixed media and create some
arts on canvas. For this project, I immediately envisioned an inspirational sentiment inside the rose background framed.
And that is exactly what I made.
I printed the image in a 5 x 7 format because I wanted to create a framed picture onto a piece of Neenah White 80lb cardstock.
I used Copic markers to color in all of the images including the background.
Copic Markers Combination
Roses: R59, R39, R27, R24, R22
Greenery: G28, YG67, YG63, YG03
Frame: E37, E35, E33, E31
Background: B00, B000, B0000
For the background, in order to be somewhat seamless, I added several layers of ink focusing on a darker center and lighter
as it fades out. If I had to do it all over again, I probably would have drawn in some clouds to break up the scene and
made it a little more dimensional.
I trimmed around the frames and added a piece of black cardstock as a mat then framed it in a 5×7 black frame.
I hope you will join us for this week’s challenge over on Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog and enter to win a prize.
