I have chosen to participate in my first online challenge. This week's Mixed Media Monday challenge was to create something black and white with just a hint of colour. For my project I made an art journal page. First I painted the page all black and then made some white lollipop flowers. To add in the hint of colour, I sponged the edges of the circles in purple ink and used a purple button for the center. To make the leaves, I tied some white ribbon in a knot. For added interest I cut out some stamped butterflies and adhered them with a glue dot. To make the butterflies look like they are flying I bent up the wings. The flowers looked a little boring just flat so I used foam tape to give some dimension.
