Guest at A Mixed Media Color Challenge


For the next two weeks, the Papercraft Star Design Team and I will be featured at A Mixed Media Color Challenge !!

This is actually my 4th attempt at Mixed Media, and this time I think I kinda got it.  At least a lot closer than I have been, lol.

Here are the colors for this week's challenge

I tried to stay as coral as possible.  I think I may have tipped over a bit into pink, but short of doctoring my picture, I am going to leave it as is.

I used paint, chalk, distress ink, regular ink, gesso, spray, and correction tape.  I included some old little pieces of something pretty I had around.  Had a wonderful time making this, it was really fun, but what a mess when I was done !

The flower behind is actually a sticker, and the one in front is a regular flower that has been gessoed.  The heart is a button.

I kept the end threads uncut and outside the frame, and added a couple of knots and a bead. On the bottom I have some washi tape, and correction tape.

 More correction tape, a pretty embossed piece of paper, more washi tape, and some button brads.

The stamped clock is one of Mona Pendleton's creations for My Favorite Things.  The package comes with several clocks, and she also has dies to go with them.  So so classy.

If you haven't tried Mixed Media yet, I suggest you give it a try and join us the next two weeks at A Mixed Media Color Challenge.  It is not as hard as it looks !
