Mission Inspiration – March

I have found a new monthly challenge that looked like something I wanted to do.  It was developed by Mike Deakin Art.   He puts out a monthly prompt.   His prompt is multi-faceted with color, words and some instructions.     It was quite different than any other prompts or challenges I participate in.  Here is the March prompt.


Here is my finished challenge project.


I used the following things:

  • The bird and the floral design is from the top layer of a napkin.
  • I applied gesso with a baby wipe that pushed the design of the napkin into the background.
  • My marks were done using the color navy blue using a BoBunny Stamp and a Ranger stamp using a terra cotta ink.
  • I used colored embossing paste to put the graphic letters in the upper left-hand corner. They were colored terra cotta.
  • My focal image was an old photo I found.
  • I added fine splatters in black and big blobby splatters in a golden/brass color.
  • I found a quote that sort of embraced the spirit of the words even if it did not include them.
  • I took some black paint and blotted on a border.
  • I used terra cotta paint and a room card key to put some grid marks on the piece.

It is not required that you use all the prompt and I did manage to miss a few.  I never used any cream paint or ink.  I never used the word opportunity or progress.  Everything else can be found on my page.

It was fun and I look forward to doing the April project.
