This week the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog is changing it up...with a blog hop! Challenge #10 is ready at the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog but we are doing things a bit differently this time! We are doing a week-long blog hop with STENCIL GIRL!
Each day this week you will visit the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog see the fabulous designs of the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Team, and then you will visit the StencilGirl Talk Blog to see what their team is doing! For the blog hop order, see the end of the post.
Now, for the challenge!
Challenge #10 Spray It! Ink It! Paint It! Smear It! Emboss It!
Show us your inner mixed media diva! Use spray mists, inks, paints, modeling paste, embossing powder, pastels, chalk, and whatever messy media you can find! Let's dig into that hoard, pull out some of that "messy stuff," and use it up! There is a mess-maker hiding in all of you! Let her/him out to play!
Here is my take on the challenge...I have to admit, this is my very first mixed media project! This challenge was so much fun for me. I started with using tissue paper and gel. I waited for the gel to dry and added gesso. Then I taped my stencil down with re-positional tape and smeared embossing paste all over the stencil to get the embossing effect of the flower. And then I just started using a lot of sprays to get the effect I was trying for. Whew, what do you think? The "Love" next to my project are alphabets from Tim Holtz, I sanded the letters and used distress paint and distressed ink.
