Our new challenge again gives you the chance to work in your own style and experiment with techniques you like. This time the challenge subject is to create with found natural objects. It can be collage, assamblage, art journal spread, scrapbook layout, magnet or anything else you want. Only one additional rule this time is that you have to use at least one product that can be found in our shop and mention it in your blog post.
And what are found natural objects? It can be everything: stones, pieces of wood, sticks, beautiful flowers, leaves, shells, feathers, sand, minerals etc. Try to open your eyes for things that you would normally ignore. Let simplicity and rawness of these objects inspire you.
Just just like the last time, to help you with this challenge we prepared a special mood board for you:
Below are some samples we both made for this challenge:
Scrapbook layout in 12x12 size with found feather using Ecolines applied with wet brush on papers coated with gesso.

1. Sand your bezel with a sanding block to clean the surface.
2. Apply thin layer of Iced Enamels Medium with a brush.
3. Sprinkle your favourite colour of Iced Enamels.
4. Melt enamel using a heating tool.
5. Play with layers of different Iced Enamels repeating the process.
6. Place pieces of shell.
7. Mix the Ice Resin and pour on your bezel. Use heating tool for few seconds to disperse the bubbles. Leave it to dry for at least 6 hours.
8. After drying you can sand the Ice Resin surface like I did, if you want a distressed look, and paint your bezel with Treasure Gold.
