This month's Mixed Media Challenge is to use items found round the house.
This is my entry

The house hold items used were: pattern from a rubber glove, a bottle brush to create border, a sieve for more texture and a funnel to make the sun's outline.
I used Dylusions: Fresh Lime, Vibrant Turquoise, Lemon Zest and White Linen to colour the card.
Then acrylic paints using the house items. Sunflower SparkleTwinkling H2O for the sun. Stencils: Imaginations Crafts (Wisteria stencil), Crafter's Workshop (Water Lilies)(Imagination Crafts) and Sweet Poppy Stencils (from The Craft Station) for the Peacock. Turquoise Sparkle medium from Imaginations Crafts on the Peacock.
