Design Team throwdown for Quoth the Raven

So this month I have got 2 pieces entered with 2 different teams. They are however 2 VERY different pieces. This piece is for the Quoth the Raven Team and my team mates Black Dragon and Ike have produced stunning pieces so make sure you go and have a look at their work.

For my piece I have done a bit of mixed media onto some cardboard, below you will find a timelapse video of me making this piece.  You will also find another video which shows where I got my inspiration from for this. I did a search online for old and grey as that is the theme our team picked after winning last month and I came across this song, I found it very funny and knew this was what I was going to base my piece on.

I started with painting the cardboard then added some texture with stenciling, stamping with bubble wrap and adding some scraps of fabric and paper. I then added the digi stamps that I had already coloured in with promarkers. The digi's I used are JustInkLined's sugar plump fairy and Ikesart Ooh La La . I printed off the lyrics from the song and cut out the ones I wanted to use.

Don't forget we needs you to come along and vote for your favourite so head to the design team throwdown challenge blog and see all the other entries

LOVE it! The song is hilarious (sort of, since I'm getting to "a certain age") but the time lapse was so cool and helpful to me because I really would like to dabble in this but am a total chicken! You make it look so easy. Fabulous, Chickie! xxD

That song is hilarious! I must play it for my husband when he gets home. I can definitely see where your inspiration came from :) Awesome take on the challenge theme and the song! Fabulous imagery! You gave me the giggle I seriously needed today :) Thanks for showing the time lapsed video. It was so much fun to see you getting so into your work, splatting paint, using your fingers...I love it! I may even try some mixed-media in the future. Can I fly over the pond and paint with you?
Oh Lady B I so wish you would! we would have a great time making a mess :D xxx
