Today is the start of a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday where we will look forward to seeing your entries for the Feathered Friend Theme.
Our team have come up with lots of different one so do pop over to the blog and have a look.
This time my take on the theme is a journal page.

This is a second makeover of this cardboard box.
The first one was damaged during my moving.
I glued some kind of mesh to the whole background and also stenciled some gesso.
The frame was made from cardboard.
There were some crumpled paper pieces mixed up with texture paste added.
To finish off my project I made a composition of flowers, chipboard and pieces of gauze.
I have coloured the whole piece with gelatos, Dylusion ink sprays and silver metal gloss paint. The text stamp was used too.
I am joining the following challenges:
mixedmediaplace: april challenge
countryviewchallenges: flower power
creativeartistemixedmedia: challenge 26

This is the very first page in my new mini art journal (14x10cm).
The colours also suit rubberdance: may challenge.
I will link it to art journal journey as well, where the theme is elegance&grunge

Today it is time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday.
Little things mean a lot is our new theme.
Make something that measures no more than 4 inches (10.16cms) square,
it doesn't have to be square, but would have to fit into the square shape.
It would be a good idea to show a ruler measuring the piece in the photo.
My take on the theme is an altered cardboard box.
I put some lettering ,,dare to fly'' there and don't know why it is so blurry ( only in the picture). ☺

The current topic at Paper Artsy blog is FOUND OBJECTS and I would like to join in with the object I recently found in an old book.
Believe it or not- it is over 20 years old dried flower I got from my deceased husband.
I used to dry the flowers he gave me.
Lots of wonderful and touching memories.
I started preparing the background with my latest faves- ecolines.
Then I used white texture past with the stencil.
I stamped a frame around my piece and attached the flower with mat heavy gel medium.
Then it was time for another found object- the back of the old calendar.
I painted it with Dylusions melted chocolate paint, stamped with Archival Ink and rubbed some Inka Gold copper metal paint.
I finish off my piece adding some crackle glaze on the edges, a metal heart and a chipboard word- memories.
Hope you like it!

I liked the challenge theme over at tag tuesday.
It is Heritage .
I treat the subject very wide- made the tag showing a polish engineer Tadeusz Wenda.
Thanks to him my hometown Gdynia transformed from a village and seaside resort to a lively town with most modern harbour in 1920s.
As a background I used a reprint the original engineer's permit.
