Majestic Mountains...sort of!

Hello there my Crafting Buddies!

I have a new Design Team card to share with you this fine morning.  I have joined up with Craft A Scene- a wonderfully different monthly challenge!  As our name explains, the themes are scene based.  In past challenges there have been themes such as Trees, Trees, Trees and The Great Outdoors, Anything Goes.  You get the idea!  And the Design Team is out of this world talented!  I am so very honored to have been chosen to be on the Craft A Scene team.

This month our theme is Majestic Mountains.  We want to see your most creative Majestic Mountains!  Coming next month, we will have very special sponsors for you to win from.  This month, create Majestic Mountains and be a a Top 3 Winner!  I often prefer that over winning goodies!  Do you?

Here is my Craft A Scene creation:

The scene is done with Prisma Pencils, using a Snow Writer by DecoArt for the mountaintop snow.  I had the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountain Range of California in mind.  The Simple Scarecrow was a freebie from Rick St Dennis.  The butterflies are from Delicious Doodles.  They are beautiful digital images.  They were reduced in size so as to make them 3-D for this card.  Drew up pumpkins and leaves, added Glossy Accents to them and the scarecrow pumpkin head, and placed crows flying about the sky.  Oh, and a fence made of some wood chips from an old weathered box.  Mounted with foam squares onto an easel card.  That is it!  I added "sort of" to the title because I would have liked the mountains to be more of the focal point.   I hope you like it anyway!

I'll be back on the 1st and 2nd Sunday of every month with a new creation for you.  All of us at Craft A Scene post the first Sunday,.  I post the 2nd Sunday also, and others of the DT will be posted weekly throughout the month.  So hop over to the Craft A Scene site often to see amazing artwork.

Scenes are so very fun to make.  Give one a go!  You will love it!  I do hope to see your majestic mountain creation over at Craft A Scene.  I bet you can create some beauties.  Until then, hoping for special bright spots in your upcoming week!  Bye bye for now.
