Default MIX159 Birth-month Flowers

CHALLENGE TITLE: BIRTH-MONTH FLOWERS
HOSTESS: MariLynn
KEYWORD: MIX159


You can find the gallery for this challenge: HERE


Today is my mother's birthday. I wanted to do a challenge that honors her. She loves all kinds of flowers. So my challenge is to make a project using Birth-month flowers. This chart shows the traditional flowers for corresponding months.

JANUARY- CARNATION
FEBRUARY- VIOLET
MARCH- DAFFODIL
APRIL- SWEET PEA
MAY- LILY OF THE VALLEY
JUNE- ROSE
JULY- LARKSPUR
AUGUST- GLADIOLUS
SEPTEMBER- ASTER OR FORGET ME NOT
OCTOBER- MARIGOLD
NOVEMBER- CHRYSANTHEMUM
DECEMBER-POINSETTIA


I decided to do February's flower: Violets.


Here are a couple of links for ideas for violets:





I made a video of the paper flowers I made.







To make it mixed media you need two or more mediums. Here is a list of some of the mediums you could use.

  • Pencils - wax, oil, watercolor, graphite/charcoal, chalk/pastel
  • Pastels - chalk, oil
  • Markers - watercolor, pigment, water-based, acrylic
  • Pens - ink, glitter
  • Pigments - Gelatos, watercolor crayons, metallic rubons
  • Paints - watercolor, acrylic, oil, poster, tempera
  • Inks - dye, chalk, distress, reinkers, pigment, hybrid
  • Powders - mica, pigment, chalk
  • Sprays & airbrushing
  • Dimensionals - embossing paste, gesso, fabric, found items, papers (collage, piecing) & ephemera, foils
  • Heated elements - encaustic wax, embossing
Use this keyword "MIX159" so that your project shows up in the gallery.

I chose June roses to match the old fashioned rose in my paper. I tried something new on the book page rose, nail polish on wire for the stamen. I should have made the twists a little wider to get the full effect. Here's my card. Fashionable Ladies by Covington Crafter - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Was in the hospital on Friday getting a procedure - so this is a bit late for the MIX challenge.

Michele you have a WONDERFUL gallery, and the very first card gave me this inspiration. Congrats!!
