Craft-Room Challenge Green Inspiration

 Green Inspiration
This gorgeous picture was created by Debi our hostess this fortnight at Craft-Room Challenge.   All Debi wants is to see is something created by you inspired by some part of the picture, it would also be nice for her to hear how you were inspired.

This is my take on the challenge.   3 Tando panels 15" x 5" each given layers of Mown Lawn Distress Paint and Peeled Paint Distress Stain.   A Crafty Individuals flock of birds stencil used on one with Imagination Crafts bronze glitter paste.   The tree parts, flowers and butterflies are all Tando from the same kit.   These were coloured with various mediums, the butterflies stamped as well with the stamp used on the panel and then everything arranged on the panels.    Before sticking them a stamp used on the opposite corner to the birds and other stencils used with Vintage Photo DI, the same ink used on the outside edges of the outer panels.   PVA glue applied to the back of each chipboard element will hopefully ensure everything should stay firmly attached.   Finally wanting to add more texture and searching my EP box I remembered setting up some 'altered' glue with green ep a while ago.    After melting the ep the glue pulled off the plastic fairly easily and pieces added to the boards.

So had all this to do with Debi's picture.   Well Green, I just love Debi's mood board, the grace and beauty of the images, the strong reflections of nature all combined to lighten anyone's mood.  This piece  of wall art will be displayed on the wall of my new home when that is decided on.

As always there will be a winner drawn at random from all the qualifying entries, this time we are sponsored by Crafty Individuals, and have some lovely goodies from them to send to someone.
