A Happy Hoedown Return...Yaaaaay!!
OH Hambo Hoedown!!!.....I have missed you sooooo.... but, Yaaaaaaay.....your'e back.!! The challenges are once a month, there are two free digis up for grabs so come and join in the fun of the new Hambo Hoedown Challenge where this months theme is flowers.
Oooooohh I can't stop experimenting with mixed media backgrounds, they are so much fun to do, I admit I am not an expert yet like Dyan Reaveley, Magda Polakow, or France Pappilon (bowing down in admiration!!) but we all have to start somewhere eh!!.
I started the background of this card with a layer of crackle glaze, then spread on some cream acrylic paint, it is always magical to see the cracks appear!! then I stencilled on the honeycomb using acrylic paints, then outlining it with a charcoal pencil, added some painted drywall tape, then finished off with some sewing (my new love too!!).
The flower is the GERANIUM digi image from Hambo Stamps.
