I pray your Sunday is blessed. Today is Create with TLC's "It's a Jungle" blog hop. I am sure several of us have felt like we were in the jungle with the heat and humidity. Well, the DTs and special guest designers are going to take you on a voyage through the great outdoors. I am kicking things off with a beautiful vintage FREEBIE image entitled, "Vintage Wood Cut Bird."

I admit that it took me a bit to realize what I wanted to do with this image. I loved the challenge and versatility of it and finally settled my brain on doing a type of mosaic tile creation.
Here's my creation...
I started with a very simple 6x6 black cardstock base and layered on some colorful dp. I then matted my image to a black and then green cardstock. I ran this image through my Cameo and created boxes to cut out the tiles. I colored the image using Copics and covered it with some 3D Crystal Lacquer. I love how vibrant the lacquer made the colors in the image. I good easily see this scene in the rainforest or some tropic jungle. Anyways, I also cut out some vines and a flower medallion using my Cameo and finished the card off with some bluish-green gems. I would love to see what you create using this beauty.
Here's another creation I made using the wordart freebie that Paulette is giving away today. I added the birds (to keep with my bird theme) and plan on using this as wall art in my craftroom. I colored it using Photoshop and added some dimension to it. I am showcasing it on a totebag, but you can use it in a variety of ways.
