So at first, I thought....what can I do with brown for Kristin's Summer of Color?? Well, the first thing I did was look through my papers, and I have a lot of browns. I love the vintage-style artwork in the sepia and brown tones, so this is where my design went--
This was made on the reverse side of a gallery-wrapped canvas, which ended up like this after I collaged my papers onto it--
I added the lace with the gel medium and sealed everything with the medium. I love doing this with these canvases--you have an instant shadowbox!
And then I used this wood house which I purchased on Etsy--
....for the final touch.
Another fun color challenge Kristin! .....and there's even more art to be seen over at Kristin's blog--go check it out!
And I wanted to update everyone on my nest. The eggs haven't hatched yet....BUT....I see the Mom AND the Dad there everyday...so I think that it's just a matter of a few more days before there are baby birdies---I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!
