Hello there! It's Yvonne here to show you my inspiration for April's challenge. This 8x8 mixed media canvas features a couple of my current obsessions - textures created by paint, wrapping tissue and mediums, the colour gold and all things pretty and vintage.:)
The base was created with scrunched up wrapping tissue, then painted with various acrylic paint colours and gesso. For a shimmering finish, I added PearlEx in various shades of gold. I even took out my typewriter to type on my postcard [cut out from patterned paper in the Zeus and Zoe kit]. I tore some gold washi tape for added texture on the edges of the postcard. And added a pretty vintage button.
I must admit I went a little crazy with the clustering of buttons, charms and little trinkets here. But they are just soooooooo pretty right? Get yours at the Zeus and Zoe store. They add that special "wow" factor to your projects.
Won't you come play along with April's challenge?
