challenge 66 - Furry Friends

Hi everyone well this was definitely a challenge for me . I got into a pickle with this and everything that could go wrong went wrong , and I was afraid I lost my crafting mojo lol . But I persevered and it all came out fairly good in the end. Any way I picked up this wooden hanging  mobile from a car boot sale and it was in pink , so I decided to make it blue . It kind of looked wishy washy in pink . So the first thing I did was to Gesso it then painted it in light blue then I used my ink to stress all the edges and then went over them highlighting in silver. Next i printed of one of the fabulous LEJ Designs onto paper towel . and then cut it out and modge poged it to the balloon drilled the wholes bigger so i could add blue ribbon , and wala here is the finished project

 Well that was the version of events after I had to sand it all back down lol 

I hope it has inspired you to have a go at making something for LEJ Designs competition
