New Challenge at Craft Your Passion Challenge Blog

This week's sponsor at Craft Your Passion is Fabrika Fantasy. Today I created a mixed media canvas on a piece of wood I scavenged at my local thrift store for 99 cents. I colored the digi image called "Wise Dragon." I love to read and suffer (gladly) with a condition called  Abibliophobia. It's the fear of running out of reading material!! LOL
I primed my wooden canvas and then added a background I created on glossy cardstock with alcohol inks. Amongst my scene is a bit of recycled Christmas card and leftover diecut evergreens; several buttons and a couple bits of jewelry; a balloon brad, butterfly brad and a gorgeous wood-cut corner-piece that I colored with coordinating Copics.
My Wise Dragon is sitting pretty on my canvas, don't you think? I decided to color him rainbow so he wouldn't disappear in my scene. I snagged my quote from Pinterest. I seem to find most of my quotes and sentiments from there and the Quote Garden lately. How about you? Where does your "sentimental" inspiration come from?
But enough about me! Now it's your turn. It's always Anything Goes at Craft Your Passion challenge blog, so link up your projects this week for some awesome prizes from Fabrika Fantasy. And as always, crafters, have FUN!
