Hello, how’s it going?
Now you may or may not have noticed that I have been dipping my toe into the wonderful world of Mixed Media lately. Well now I have a chance to paddle right out there (eeeeek!) as I have joined the amazing WE LOVE 2 CREATE team.
We have a challenge every month that is ‘Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes’ and we are sponsored by the amazing POLKADOODLES!! Our winner will receive a fabulous prize so check out the blog for details.
So my effort this month is a canvas board, covered in various mica sprays, texture paste and gilding wax. I added a tag with a ‘walk in a winter wood’ theme achieved by inking through the fab TREES stencil and adding a snowy ground with texture paste.
I wanted to use the fabulous girl image from the stamp set SPECIAL TIMES but she looked a little too ‘summery’ for what I had in mind. So, with my need to always find alternative uses for my dies, I applied the same principle to my stamps. I used elements from the GREAT DAYS set to give her a winter coat, earmuffs, hat and scarf! I even doodled her some stripy tights so her legs wouldn’t get cold!!
