Try it Tuesday #13

Try it Tuesday #13

Hello my blog reading buddies!!  I’m at my cabin for 2 weeks or R & R and loving it!!  It’s been raining off and on for the past three days so I decided today I needed to create!

If you haven’t already checked out my friend Karen Burchill Facebook group called, “All Things Mixed Media: CreativeKady” the you really need to come and check us out.  Here is a link to her page. She does a bi-weekly prompt challenge called ‘Try It Tuesday’ where she gives us a list of 6 prompts to create from.  Here is a link to her YouTube video where she pulls the prompts and gives them to us, Try It Tuesday #13. This is my take on the TIT #13.  I had actually completed it ahead of time with the intention of posting it while I was at the cabin…..but left it at home!  So ya, nothing like doing a challenge twice!

I started by covering my re-purposed flash card with a layer of dictionary pages that had been colored using my left over paint in the foam daubers when I paint with my Dylusions paints.  I can usually cover a few dictionary pages with the left over paint when I’m done with them.  I also used all the odds and ends of pieces that were left over from punching circles, etc.  Here’s what the base looked like when I was finished.


I had my granddaughter pick out her favorite Crazy Bird stamp and I stamped it onto a piece of paper and fussy cut it out.  I laid it down on the card and took a brush and painted around the bird to leave a ‘masked’ image behind on the tag.  I then took the same stamp and stamped it into the space left by the mask so the bird would be on the actual card.  I found a quote, wrote it out on a piece of the colored dictionary page and adhered it to the card.  I painted the insides of the birds eyes to make them pop and outlined the quote and the edge of the card.  All done!!


So, here’s my challenge tag.  Now, to go create something with the grandkids…..wish me luck!

Thank you for coming along.  Until the next urge to write up a blog hits me…..take care my blog family!
