Good morning, it's looking like a lovely sunny day so I think I may leave my craft room for a few hours to enjoy a long walk in the park with Barney my black lab. Before we go on our adventure, I'd like to share a project made for our new 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes' challenge over at We Love 2 Create. As always those lovely folks at Premium Craft Brands have a fab prize for our lucky winner and Top 3 honours will be up for grabs too.
I've used all sorts of bits and bobs from my stash, including a gorgeous resin frame from Craft Box, adding lace, die cuts, metal embellies etc to my canvas. Everything got a generous coat of gesso and once that was dry I applied another coat but this time dusted over PanPastels while the gesso was wet, using a brush to mix the pans and blend the colours. Once that was dry I added a little gold PanPastel and highlighted some areas with gilding flakes. The image is a stamp by Indigo Blu, stamped on tissue using a mix of Versafine smokey grey ink and flitter glu. I gilded the image and applied with matte medium,, adding a little colour with Graph'it markers.
To finish off I've added some splashes of Pebeo fantasy paint in gold.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Altered Eclectics: Anything goes
A Place to Start: upcycle
Craft Your Passion: anything goes]
Indigo Blu: Spring is in the air
Inspiration Destination: anything goes
Love to Scrap: Girly

If you've got a minute pop over to the challenge blog, as always my teamies have lots of inspiration for you. Thanks so much for visiting today
Hope to see you again soon
