Introducing a new challenge

Morning all and a very big welcome. Thanks for stopping by as I have some fantastic news . My good friend Mo aka Massofhair is hosting a brand new monthly challenge blog, and I'm honoured to be on the design team.

Old New and Digital too is the idea of Mo, go visit the blog to read how it came about and meet the team. All the details of the challenge can be found there too. The opening challenge is anything goes as long as it contains some thing old and new and something designed by you digitally. What great fun!

Well here is my creation for the opening challenge.
I took a tag and sprayed it with distress ink in Seedles Preserve and Peacock Feathers. I then sprayed some Walnut stain on my craft mat and using my new stencil added some butterflies

in the close up you can see how I've flicked water on the tag to get some drips and blots. I also added some words from another stencil.

Next came my girl, which I created in Draw Plus which  I am loving so expect some more from me once I learn to use the programme. In the close up you can the dress is made from a photo brush which has tiny flowers.

I cut my girl out and added some shading using Fable Castel Paint Pens.

The words on the tag say Embrace Inperfection and Explore Life. The photo doesnt show the words as well as in real life.

So come on go visit the blog for some great inspiration for the Design Team and get your entry in.
hopefully see you on the blog where I can leave your creation a lovely comment. Take care for now and ill see you soon.

  3. Congratulations on your new DT position Debs! Love your first project, it's such a wonderful marriage of digital and mixed media! Best of luck to you on this new adventure! hugs :)

  4. What a great tag, starting from the background using these wonderfully named colours. I would have been quite happy to leave it at that, it looks great. But then you added the girl and quote and the ties at the top and it looks fantastic.
    I must investigate Draw Plus.
    Good luck with your new challenge blog.


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my blog. Your comments are appreciated.
