Storybook mixed media


I have to say looking at the challenges on the Simon Says Stamp blog I came across Catherine Cowles DT make for the patterned paper challenge and was totally inspired. So when starting to put together my 4 year olds room I knew I had to make something that looked like my little pony for her since she loves it so much. I wanted to give this picture a story book look to it and couldn't help but think that Catherine's card was the perfect inspiration for this!

I started off doing the grass with the zig clean color but I'm not that great with water colors so went over the top portion with my dylusions paint.

Grass:
Dylusions paint - fresh lime

Decoart dazzling metallic - festive green
Ranger Tim Holtz distress ink - mowed lawn

I then glued down my patterned paper to the lower half to cover up my hideous water coloring skills.lol

 
I colored the ponies to look like my little pony characters and although it doesn't show in the picture put wink of stella in their manes. I fastened them down with foam tape.


Ponies:

Zig clean color real brush - colbalt blue, dark pink, light pink, pale pink, light gray, wine red, red, orange, yellow, lemon yellow, may green, deep violet, violet, light violet

Finally I secured the whole canvas to the inside of a shadow box frame I picked up at target.
