The Garden View! #KSDT2015

Spark Some Kreativity Saturday @ the Kraaft Shaak

Welcome to the garden view!

As soon as I opened up my brand new Mixed Media Kit from the Store I knew that I would love creating with it! I dug through to the bottom to discover that my altered item was in fact a beautiful wooden double “door” frame for a 4×6 picture.

I was instantly reminded of a picture of myself from many years ago. I was visiting ghost towns with a cousin while travelling through the Canadian Rocky Mountains. We stopped and adventured through one that had only a single wall remaining of a small dwelling. In this wall the bricks were stacked and mortared with this little wooden window casing that opened up to the outside. My cousin and I took turns taking pictures of each other through that window because it was just such a perfectly framed image.

I took that inspiration and ran with it, recreating that brick wall, adding some life to it with creeping vines, flowers and metallic objects.

This was one of those projects that evolves slowly, over the course of several days. I would add a little bit to it and then set it aside for another day, I would repeat that process until one night I decided to make it FINISHED!

As you can see I just added more and more elements until it just couldn’t take any more!

I wanted to write this big elaborate blog about how much I enjoyed working on this project, but decided instead that the video is significantly more entertaining!
