"Hey there Peeps! Ginny here and I'm just tickled pink to be guest designing this month for Frilly & Funkie. A little about me...I'm living a very blessed life out on a dirt road in the country with my hubby of 23 years and one nearly grown Son left at home and one in college. I get to "play paper" as my dream job and loving every minute of it.
My crafty interests are ever evolving and my current obsession is mixed media. Cards and tags are my real passion...although I do enjoy 3d projects and mini albums. I'm thrilled to be joining the talented F&F designers this month as they are a constant source of inspiration to me."
"This project was really a combination of all the things that came to mind for a "Hip To Be Square" hippie theme. Owls of course are a classic retro icon. I created mine with a layering of retro patterned papers and assembled with spacers between the layers for depth. Just to be cheeky I added a tiny handcrafted pair of glasses to make my owl a real" square".
I used a variety of retro inspired chipboard pieces colored in the essential burnt orange and avocados which adds graphic detail and great pops of color. I gave my owl a little home in a recycled stamp carton to create a shadow box effect and attached it to a MDF board covered in some really groovy printed paper.
Last but not least.....coordinating flowers because all 70's hippies were flower child's right? This project was really a walk on the "Funky" side for me....but I love how it turned out!!! Maybe I have an inner flower child waiting to come out????"
