Hi friends. January is almost over, but I feel I've really accomplished something with this monthly challenge at Motley Soul Mixed-Media Art. This post shows how I made the base for my cards.
My inspiration jar gave me the words: sun, white, and seeds.
White space is a lot like silence. We think we need to fill it with something. But we need both white space and silence. They allow our eyes - and minds - to rest and focus. So I gave my background a coat of white paint and left it.
I die cut a picot edge circle (spellbinders) in white and another circle that just fit the inside. I used the negative piece from the circle as a mask to stamp the flower and to sponge summer sun ink. I also just touched the edges with the same ink. The flower was colored with markers. Then I painted matte mod podge in the center and added mustard seeds, with another coat of mod podge over the top. When that was dry, I added brown paint with my finger over the seeds.
The sentiment was computer generated, cut apart and sponged with summer sun.
I love this card and hope you do too.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
