More mixed media January challenge: optional blue


This is my little project for this month's More mixed media January challenge, using blue. Please click on the link to see the wonderful crafting of others in the team - and we hope you will be able to join in with your entries.

When I saw this little rocking horse in The Works recently I knew I wanted to use it as a 'Congratulations on the birth of your baby boy' - something a bit different.

With John still in hospital (I'm going every day to visit), time for crafting has been limited and I didn't do this project justice at all. I painted the bare rocking horse using white gesso mixed with blue acrylic paint and then added bits and pieces.

So I used something new (rocking horse), something old (the other bits and pieces), for a new baby.
