MMM Creative Dare!

Hi Everyone!

I hope that you all had a great weekend! We spent time with friends and it was wonderful! :D

Today I want to share with you a canvas that I did for Mixed Media Mondays!
Our creative dare for March is to use a favorite song and buttons! ;)
We are being sponsored this month by Buttons Galore and Viewtainer. :D

So I know many will think my song choice is silly especially considering how old I am, however I am probably going to do another canvas for this challenge as well so this song just seemed like it should be my first choice!
Now before I tell you what it is let me explain it just a little ;D My Husband and I met in high school, just before my 15th birthday. And I loved Winnie the Pooh (where others loved Micky Mouse, I was all about the bear! tehe) and we also loved the group Loggins and Messina. And just about that time they came out with an album called "Loggins and Messina Siting in" (I think)...Kenny Loggins use to right songs for his Children and then put them on the albums,so on this album he had written  one for one of his Children and it was call "House on Pooh Corner". So that song somehow became "Our" song!
So here is my Canvas!

I used a lot of different products and Stamps. Paint is from Decco Arts and Claudine Helmuth. I used gesso and a template from Crafter's Workshop for the tree and then a stippling brush for the leaves.
The butterfly is a stamp from the Greeting Farm. Buttons from my stash. The words to the song as you can see are cut apart and then under the paint.

 I did try to find stamp images that reflected the words to the song. The Bees and the beehive is from Unity as well as the brick border that I used for the stepping stones from the little houses. I did paint those in with Studio Acrylics and india ink pen from Copic. The lamp post is from Stampendous, and the Flourish border and leaf is impression Obsession.
I also used Glossy Accents in the light of the lamp post and well as the windows to make them look like glass. I did use it on the butterflies as well after I colored them with copics.

I hope that you like it. I know that painting really isn't my strong area, or Mixed Media for that matter. But I am trying to go outside of my comfort zone and explore!
Thank you for stopping by and following me on my journey with Mixed Media!

Here is hoping that you have "chased all the clouds from the skies" in your lives!

Blessings and Hugs!
