It is time for another Mixed Media/altered art challenge at Bleeding Art Challenge Blog. The theme as always is anything goes. Create anything that you like as long as it meets the rules of the challenge.
I decided to alter a gourd from one of may I hauled back from Arizona's Running of the Gourd.
This is the gourd I started with
I first painted my gourd with gesso and then with Kroma Crackle. I painted my assortment findings with gesso. The next step was colour the gourd and findings with different colours of spray ink. My finding included old floral leaves, gems, metal butterflies, brooches, scarf pins, buttons, floral stones, belt parts ......
Here are some closers looks.
This was a fun project for me. Hope you will join us in this monthly challenge. Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by our talented design team. Thank you for stopping by.
