At Crafty Cardmakers and More we are holding our first Mixed Media Challenge. As its our first please pop over for all the details here. Our sponsor is Woodware Craft Collection
I am hosting this first challenge and we have chosen a very loose theme, with lots of choice for this first one--
'Winter and/or Slap it on. There is some fantastic inspiration from the D.T.
I chose to alter a 7 x 7 inch canvas.
Including a bit slap it on , with colours that suggest winter, blues, white a bit of sparkle for the frost.
But as we are leaving winter soon in the UK I am adding a couple of flowers. So you get the idea, mixed media can mean all kinds of things/effects/ depending on how you choose to go with the theme.
On the left is the base canvas, painted with Linen coloured acrylic paint. I used a couple of stencils and grunge paste for a bit of texture.
After painting the canvas over with a mixture of Mermaid fresco paint, picket fence distress stain, I stamped out the quote I wanted to use on tissue and played around with flowers and feathers to get the idea of what I may end up with.
I added some random stamping to the canvas using Stormy skies distress ink.
The tissue quote was layered up on die cuts. I used Chunky White Frantage and silver embossing powder round the edges .
All the stamps I used were from Indigo Blu.
Next came the flowers, these were also die cuts from Craftwork cards.
A sprinkle of glitter in the canvas and of course myself and I decided that I quite like the result.
Thank you for stopping by to see what I have made for this challenge.
