Clarity Challenge 1
Good morning everyone. This is my first make for the Clarity Challenge Blog. Those who are Facebook friends will know how much I enjoy Clarity Stamps and altered art. Combine the two and you can make some stunning things for the home making them into your own individual works of art.
This was a plain rather beaten frame. I picked it up in a junk shop for 50p...but it had a few scratches on the wood and had seen better days. That said it was perfect for what I wanted a frame with a wide fairly flat surface. After taking it home and giving it a clean with a well known bleach type cleaning product (The One that has Bang in the name!)I was ready to go....I stamped the frame with the two poppy stamps and added the two mice from the harvest farm set using Adirondack espresso. Then coloured the images in with promakers. Moss green for the stalks and leaves and Poppy for the poppies if you look closely you will see two little mice sitting in the poppies...made a poppy picture, using the cloud mask the wheelbarrow from the garden set the birdies were from the JOY and birdhouse set two hot air balloons and a tree I think it maybe the larch but I have had this one a while so can't recall exactly. I hope you like it and next time you pass a junk shop pop in!
