OMG - JULY! This year has just flown by - BUT it is scallop season! YUMMY!
Yes, it is cold .... but so beautiful too
These two photo's were taken by Greg Faull (a talented photographer) early yesterday morning in Hobart - the wooden seats look like gold in the beams of the rising sun.
However, this post is not about either scallops, fish or beautiful sunrises
It is about
The Unstampabelles Challenge #48 for July asks us to create a bunch of flowers, or even better for the twist, to create a garden
This is the prize on offer
I decided to make what I call a wrap around card. I could not find my original template so did it by guesswork - always dangerous! I started with creating a card with two flaps either side, cut down to create an impression of "over the fence". I used a stencil and various smudging techniques to create a woodland behind the fence
I masked off and just played until it looked OK.
Later I added a snail to the other side of the fence!
These are taken at night so the clarity and quality of the photo's are not good - sorry about that!
The cat is on the fence trying to get to the butterfly on the tree
The 'wings' wrap around and are semi-circular, so the card sits on them you can see the small slash to the right where the tag fom the left side slips in
The right tag then drapes across and is slipped into a slot in the fence - you can see the fence and the back of the tree here
The flowers were added to the fence to create the impression of a riot of spring colour!
I hope this gives you an idea of how the garden was created, and the 3D idea as well. It was a little smaller than I intended but I went with what I had!
Now, off you go and see what else the rest of the DT has created and how they made their flowers/gardens.
The, thinking caps on and off the the craft desk for a bit of creative time before entering what you have made in the Challenge
