.....inspiration!!!

I have to say......I was CREATIVELY stumped this morning.
I needed to come up with project to video for this weekend....
yet...... I had another project due later....
But I was stuck wanted to work on the second project.....
As I was in this creative struggle....
I opened my email......and there
was my
INSPIRATION!!


the challenge......
"use all six primary and secondary colors"
ahhhhh.....
my JUMP START!!
I chose 6 Gelatos
a primed "mini canvas"
and let the creating begin.
I made 6 vertical swipes
with one of each of the colors.
I then spritzed the Gelatos
with European Gold ~ Shimmering Mist.


Once dry....
I lathered on a thick layer 
of Matte ~ Multi Medium.
Choosing one of my favorites
stamps......
I stamped into the Multi Medium.
(I got the idea watching my fellow
Education Team Member ~ Miranda Edney.)
I placed my mini canvas into a 200 degree oven
to help expedite the drying process.
When dry I spritzed the Multi Medium
with European Gold Shimmering Mist.
See how it just sits in the crevices!??!?


A flower.....
some leaves, with a 
piece of ribbon and jute!
I was now free to complete my 
assignment!!!

Hi Lynn,
I have a question for you. I am new to journaling and to scraping of anything. But lately i have joined in on a couple of jessica's and Carolyns challenges. i have one bottle of Shimmering mist. I used it two different times on top of what was completely dry Silks acrylic glaze. To my surprise the paint ran a obscured some of my design. Is this a problem either with the paint or the mist?
