It’s Flamingo Four time again! This time four of the DT members were given these four items:
- 4×4 canvas
- 6×6 paper pad Pink Paislee “Indigo Blue”
- Wendy Vecchi Art Parts “Pocket Watch”
- Maya Road Acrylic People keychain
I have to admit, I am not a fan of the whole potty people stick figure trend. But, wait til you see what I made with them! I was gonna give it as a gift, but now I want to keep it!
The first “challenge” with this project was that it is tiny! 4×4 inches is not a lot of space! The first thing I did was use the potty people stick figures as masks for a color mist. I laid them strategically where the man and woman were holding hands. Then I used a piece of paper as a mask and I cut a heart shape out of it. I laid that down over the canvas and used a liquid glue to cover the heart area. Then I sprinkled some translucent glitter on it. I now have a sparkly heart! I was a little surprised at how much the glitter covered. I was wanting the potty people stick figure’s hand holding to show thru a lot more. Oh well. I decided to outline the heart a little more just so it would stand out. I wanted to do a mixed media look and so I also spattered some black ink over the canvas and rubbed some teal ink around the edges.
The next thing I did was I misted the chipboard pocket watch. I used the same mist as I did on the canvas, but it came out a lot different because of the chip board’s original color. I think it looks fine that way because it adds dimension and contrast. I also added a little bit of glitter glue to the pocket watch to add some shine and glam. The paper behind the watch blends nicely with all the colors and kinda ties things up.
The butterfly resting on the edge of the heart is so pretty! I made this with a punch and a sheet of printed words in the paper pack. So many cute ones to choose from but I loved this one with the text on it soooo much!
So there it is, another Flamingo Four project! I can’t wait to see what the other girls make with theirs and I know you will want to check it out on the Flamingo Scraps Blog, too!
