My turn today on the blog. I was inspired by Jasmine's LO featuring alphas over at the Cyber Crop. This is a photo of my sister with her 50th birthday present from her daughter - a statue of 2 meerkats!
I started by rolling on some black gesso with a brayer and when that was dry, some white gesso. I then used the chisel end of a paint spatula and scrapped on some spearmint, red and orange acrylic paint in random places. I then just layered my photo with a diecut word bubble from a previous JAP kit, a doily, piece of paper bag and my go to Punchinella
Then I just added some embellishments including mini metal flowers, rosebuds, a very cute hedgehog flair button (because I couldn't find a meerkat flair!), some tiny heart beads, some wood veneer hearts (again from a JAP kit) and a few other bits and pieces from my stash. Finished off with the old D'Lish alphas.
This is the challenge that inspired me. Plenty of time to join in this month's challenges so give it a go and see what you can create!
