Anything Mixed Media/Creative Goes at We Love 2 Create

Good morning folks, its inspiration time over at We Love 2 Create and I've made a canvas using some of my favourite products from Premium Craft Brands. Our theme is 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes' so its a nice easy one for you. You don't have to use our products to enter and our lucky winner will receive some gorgeous goodies from Premium Craft Brands!

I began by rummaging through my scraps box and stuck lots of bits and bobs onto my 8x8 canvas with Maimeri Matte Gel Medium. I used lace, ribbon, pearls, die cuts, paper flowers, bits of old jewellery and some chunky tags from some new clothes. I gave everything a coat of Maimeri White Gesso and added some stencilling with Light Modelling Paste. I added another coat of matte gel and while it was wet dusted on Permanent Red Tint PanPastel and Pearlescent Red PanPastel using a duster brush. Once it was all dry I sponged on a little versamark ink and then dusted on some Coarse White Pearlescent PanPastel Medium and used a Sofft tool to add some Light Gold Metallic PanPastel. Its really shimmery in real life but it doesn't show up in the pic.

I stamped one of the tags with one of my favourite stamps from the Postcard stamp set from Premium Craft brands and dusted over with some Black Fine Pearl PanPastel Medium. I also use the fine black Pearl medium to add some shadows here and there too.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge: R is for ribbon
City Crafter: Paste it
Creative Artiste: Mixed Media with lace and pearls
In the pink: pink ribbon

Thanks for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
