Woohoo!!! It's Pink Ninja Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!!
The new prompt is "handmade", technique is to use cardboard, and the pink twist is lace.
I have to admit I was flummoxed by the "handmade" prompt. I dont' really make anything what I'd term "handmade" other than papercrafts. I don't sew or knit or anything like that. As Mo so nicely put it, I just wasn't getting my mojo green light. And then ~chorus of angels, bright glowing light, bluebirds soaring~ the Sunday Target ad arrived and my mojo was greenlighted! They had an adorable piece of "art" on sale that inspired this layout:
I obviously didn't focus on something handmade but I featured something "handmade". The heart is "faux handmade paper". I've used this technique before on another Pink Ninjas prompt way back when. You use paint and toilet paper to get that fiber-y handmade paper look:
I have to say I absolutely LOVE painting on cardboard! It's become my favorite base. And I've been hoarding pieces for a while now and have some great "interesting" pieces. This one, for instance, has several holes in it which I love.
Hop on over to the Pink Ninjas blog to check out what the other Ninjas made for your "handmade" inspiration. It's a regular craft fair over there!!! Have I mentioned how honored I feel to be included in this amazing bunch of artists?? These chicks are off the hook!
Hope you have a happy hump day!
