Bird is the Word blog hop

Hi and welcome to your next stop in the Bird is the Word Blog Hop!
I'm so happy to see you here, I do hope you are enjoying this little hop and that you like this fortnights challenge word.

You should have arrived here from Kylie's blog but if you haven't you should go back to the beginning of the list so you won't miss out on all the fun.

Our new word is Imagine.

Join us by making a layout, card or any artsy project and link them up on the blog.
You have seen all the gorgeous projects of the Design Team so far

Mieke Nagtegaal (yep, that's me!)

well here's my project

I've created a canvas 40x50 cm instead of the usual layout.

This was so much fun! Will do this a lot more.

First I started with Gesso on the canvas, then I used two colors of MM paint mixed with Gesso to build up a layer.

Then I got my basket of sprays and lots of Glimmer Mist gave that bit of shine to it.

A Tattered Angels Screen with Clearsnap Smooch Spritz was used for the swirl. Love that stuff. It came with my Donna Salazar kit. Awsome spritz!!

Then it was time to build up with papers (Donna Salazar Trunk in the Attic, Grandma's Garden and the Crafty Chronicle)

Other supplies used:
Distress Ink
Distress Stain
Glossy Accents
Dusty Attic Bird cage and butterfly
May Arts ribbon
Tim Holtz fragments
Twinklets Diamond Dust (see them on the roses?)
Prima Flowers Primrosa Woodland
Prima say it in pearls

Anyway, about the blog hop, to win the wonderful prize sponsored by Tidtitz in Time, a wonderful scrapbook kit, become a follower on the Bird is the Word blog and all the Designers.
