March Farm Fresh Challenge

Hey everyone! It’s a brand new month and that means a new Farm Fresh Challenge over the The Greeting Farm!

This month the challenge is Mixed Media! Now you can go all out and make a lovely canvas, keep it simple and do a one layer card with copic colouring and a distress ink background! It doesn’t have to be elaborate or super simple to be called mixed media, it just has to have more then one medium on the project.

I landed somewhere in the middle, my image, Blush Bebe was coloured with my standard Copic markers, I then edged all of my papers in distress ink before roughing them up a little. The chipboard was painted with Gouache that I tinted with some pigment powders. after putting on the flowers and getting the card all set together some molding paste really finished it off!

I hope you are willing to step outside of your comfort zone, or play within your favorite style with us on this months challenge!

Feb. Farm Fresh Challenge – 3D

farmfreshchallenge

Hey all! It’s Feb 1, that means its time to start a new Farm Fresh Challenge on The Greeting Farm Blog!

The challenge for this month is 3D, and this is so out of my comfort zone!!! But I did come up with something for you all!

I coloured up SSSC no. 25 – Carnival  with my copic markers a while ago, and thought this was the perfect little project for it!

I broke out my Cameo and cut a square pillow box and all the pattern paper layers with the file, once it was all cut out I inked up all the pattern papers and then glued them onto the pillowbox, adding my image, some chipboard and wild orchid craft flowers and this little box was done!

I can’t want to see what you create this month!
