With January already out of it`s first week, we are ready, again, to enjoy creating and playing,
and for this weeks Challenge  :  "Feeling Blue - mainly blue "  I enjoyed creating this little panel.
I used one of the new paints , Bright Blue , mixed with a bit of white, on the panel, and letting it dry .
Then the lovely stencil , Mandala was used together with the Metallic Ice Blue ,paint, dabbed through it, twice , -drying in between each layer.

On the other side of panel, I used the tree stencil , first with Potting Soil, and after with Hydrangea, to achieve this dreamy tone.

The butterfly from the new Textures Collection set, was stamped directly onto the background, and after also on white card stock. I painted it with a even more soft tone of the blue and white mix.
Draw up the lines from the stamp with a grey fine liner, and painted the spots , white , then adhered to the panel on top of the already stamped ,one.

The lovely " harlequin "pattern from one of the bigger stencils, I added here and there, also with Hydrangea.
Laces were also painted with the rest of the light blue mix, and adhered to the panel . One of the tiny
boys, from Tim Holz Christmas Paper Dolls, found a place to sit on the lace -holding onto the tree, an d his butterfly in his hand via a silvery thread , from a Christmas gift.He got wings I cut, to suit him,- from a Bits and Pieces Butterflies sheet . They were painted white, and details made with the grey fine liner, -also on his dress I highlighted the details.

Half an affirmation from one of Lynne`s sheets , was stamped onto a piece of painted paper,and
adhered to panel under the boy. I added white dots , around the perimeter , and made some berries to the tree- and the feelers on the butterfly was also defined more, with a fine liner.

This finished my sample for this : feeling Blue , challenge. If you want to play, please visit here  for more details .
The winner will receive this wonderfulgift , to use in the shop !!

I hope to see some of your creations, there.

Hugs and love

What a fabulous shade of blue you have created by mixing the paints. Your delicately painted butterfly is so beautiful and your sweet little boy is such a happy baby, a real cutie wrapped up in his warm winter woolies. Such an enjoyable piece Dorthe.
