Craft Room Challenge - Picture Inspiration

Hi, the new Craft Room Challenge  have given us a mixed media design to interpret.

I revamped a piece made a couple of years ago which was never really happy with.  Hopefully it works a lot better now and will fit into the challenge OK.  Although there is a certain Gremlin on my workspace who keeps changing things when I'm not looking...........little monkey........


Using a Cereal box piece to work with.  Gesso, stencils, acrylics, various stamps, crackle paint and diecuts which have been gifted to me over time.

Am knee deep in sketches at the moment - all for the rubbish bin, but hopefully by February will be ready for the 29 Faces as missed it last year.........and boy do I need the practice and the proverbial kick up the you know where to actually make something.

Wishing you a very happy week, stay safe and warm.  Take care of yourselves, hugs Annette x

A lovely detailed piece Annette. At first I thought the words were from an old song - but then realised the song was 'windmills of your mind' - I think anyway! Hope you have a lovely weekend xx

Nettie...your mixed media piece is so cool. I love all of the wonderful colors, patterns and shapes. You always have something so interesting to post on your blog. I also wanted to thank you for such a sweet post you left on my blog as I am leaving Simon Says Stamp's Design Team. You made me feel so good! I am really excited to get into my craft room now that I am back from CHA and just have a mindless play! :) <3 Candy
