There's 'No Card' Today

 The heading says it all!
However there is something else.
I am hosting our Wild Card Week
over at Just Us Girls 
and looking for Anything But a Card
With five Saturday's in the month we have our
Wild Card where the Host has free range to choose!
There are so many ways you can use your creativity
as you can see below. 

I thought I would share a little 4x4 Mixed Media Canvas
in a fairly simple way. 
The canvas has gesso added which makes everything
you add after that 'stick'.
I textured/coloured up my canvas and 
some paddle pop stick for the fence
 then started adding bits and bobs.
These include bits of bark from the yard,
dried flowers and seeds from a bouquet I was given,
The centre of the blue flower (from my stash)
is actually the centre from the seeds.
Added some cheese cloth, 
a few leaf dies and  art stones.
So you see Mixed Media can be
fairly easy by adding things you may have
around the house. It's fun just to experiment.
My kind of relaxation while others
love to dabble in colouring images.
Pop over and see how everyone
chose to play this week.
We also say good bye to our lovely Guest Chrissie
who inspired us greatly with her talents. 
Thank You for joining us this month.

Thanks for dropping in today

This is just beautiful. I love the colors and the design. Such a sweet little bit of creativity to hang on the wall or place on a mantle. It's absolutely lovely!

This is gorgeous Ina and I just love your color palette! Such a fun challenge. I may have taken the easy route but enjoyed it just the same. Take care!

Your canvas is gorgeous! I love how you added all of those bits of bark and flower seeds to create this beauty. Great challenge for us this week!

What a lovely way to encapsulate your wonderful elements Ina. I loved the idea of you using the seeds etc from a bouquet you where given...such a creative idea x. Fabulous colour combination and the most eye striking design . I love this Ina x.

I love this nature canvas! The colors are so pretty - and the little pieces of nature are so fun. Blues and browns go so well together. Great work, Ina!

Vicki Dutcher said...

Awesome! The colors are quite fabulous together

I'm glad it relaxes you, Ina, because I'd probably be fiddling with it for ages until I go crazy. lol You do have a knack for mixed media and this is lovely.
