Creative Artiste March Challenge DT Post Sponsored by Hannah Oxberry

Helloooooo! It's March, so it's time for a fresh new challenge over at Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge Blog. As always anything mixed media goes so join in if you can. 

This month we are kindly sponsored by Hannah Oxberry. Hannah supplies some great mixed media products so do check out her website. The prize this month is a mixed media bundle, but in addition to that Hannah is kindly offering a 15% off code for followers of Creative Artiste. The code is CreativeArtiste15 and is valid until the end of March. 

Hannah is a stockist of Tando Creative products, and I have used those on my canvas for this months DT inspiration. 

To create my canvas I first used a brayer and acrylic paint to create a mottled sky. I used my gelli plate to create a print in grass greens, which I cut to size and adhered to the canvas. I used a little home from Tando's Whimsical Houses set which I covered in designer papers and stamped and doodled on. The door ,window, and tree were painted with Golden Fluid Acrylics and Dylusions paint. I stamped some text randomly across the sky for added interest, and added some birds. 

The flowers, birds and snail are all from Paper Artsy. I used watercolour markers to colour the snail- isn't he cute! He was fussy cut and stuck with matt medium, as was the sunflower ( but I used dylusions paint on that) . The grasses ( stamps are Laurel Leaves by Indigo Blu) were stamped direct to canvas with Versafine Clair ink, and the circular flowers were also stamped direct and coloured with Posca pens. 

To finish I used a sentiment stamp from Dylusions. 

I hope I've inspired you to play along with us this month. We really do love to see what you are creating.
