DT Project #3 by Minxy : Featuring:

Wendy Vecchi Studio 490
Art Parts
'Seriously Art' stamp set
MME Kraft Funday papers
Well here I am for my last offering this month. Have you all been playing along??
My last piece this month was another thrown together piece.. Proving that someone like me who has never really played properly with art parts before can do it so, so can you.. you still have a couple of days left to be in with that chance of winning some 490 stash, check out the link in the sidebar.
So to my piece..
 This was a nice simple piece to make as all I did was pick a selection of art parts, some were from the DT pack and some were my own but all are available from Snazzy's.
I covered some of the art parts with papers from the MME funday collection, and the leaves I stained with distress stain and adirondack colourwash spray.
 I arranged and glued them all together with some stix2 ultra clear tape. I stamped one of the quotes from the   'seriously art' set onto a piece of lined paper I had in my stash and added a idea-ology pen nib to the top, I slipped this into place, again using the ultra clear tape
I finished with a couple of pine cone die roses cut out of the MME papers and attached a couple of idea-ology memo pins to the back with a hot glue gun making the loops stick out so I could use some twine to hang the piece.
So there you have it from me for another month. I hope you have enjoyed my offerings, but don't despair, the 490 fun isn't over yet, we still have Astrid's fab art to come so check back in a few days for her first piece.
Till next time.. Stay Inky

Another fabby piece Nicky. These products are such fun to play with I agree and I'd never used any Art Parts at all before either. Love how the colours of the Art Part leaves brings out the same colour in those lovely MME papers. The pine cone roses are gorgeous.

Great use of colour and pattern here, "thrown together" ... I think not. x
