May flowers

Sharing a few small projects that were inspired by the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge (May flowers).

A friend gave me a box full of chipboard shapes and included were about a dozen gift box shapes. I added gesso to 3 of them and used them as mini canvases. Although each turned out very different from the others, I actually used the same acrylic paint colours and many of the same stencils for each.

#1 Singing bird was finished off with one of Tim Holtz' birds and enamel musical notes.
#2 Friendship has hand-rolled flowers and a quote on friendship.
#3 Dandelions is my favourite as the white paint took on a silver sheen when added over black.
