My New Gig......

I am soooo EXCITED to announce
that I have been asked to join the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Design Team!
If you know me.....you know......I LOVE A CHALLENGE!
So lets' get this thing started......

This month's sponsor is StencilGirl Products and the theme is...


with a $25 Gift Certificate going to a randomly chosen winner.

Here is my take on this month's challenge!
I had lots of fun working with the StencilGirl products!


I wasn't sure where I was headed when I began this project
but I knew I wanted to play around with various mediums
through the Stencil Girl Products Stencils. 
 So, I pulled out a piece  a piece of
Canvas Corp Brands Specialty Paper ~ Boucle
some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist ~ Mountain Mist
for my first layer.


When that layer was dry
and randomly applied a layer of Deco Art Crackle Paste.


When that layer had finished drying I chose
and spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist ~ Navy Blue.
I then flipped the stencil over and applied to leftover
Glimmer Mist to the rest of my "background" paper.


Then it was onto the last layer, I again used the
and randomly applied Perfect Paints ~ Clear Texture Gel.
While wet I sprinkled in a bit Vintage Glitter Glass.
I have to say, I love the interaction between the Clear Texture Gel
and the Glimmer Mist...creating a color variant!


When everything was dry I looked at my background paper
and decided I would create a tag first.
I have to say, I just LOVE how the background paper came out,
JUST THE PERFECT amount of sparkle and texture!


Here are a few close ups of my creation.....
I did add a few more layers to my tag......
I spritzed on an additional layer of
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist ~ Precious Metals
and added a few copper seed beds for color. 


.....a little bit of wire mesh
a section of UmWowStudio Hexagon background chippie.


a flower and a bit of foliage
accented with a bit of vintage trim.....


finished off with verbage from
 Yvonne Blair Designs/IO Stamps ~ Card Sentiment.


I hope you enjoyed my creation
MAKE SURE to pop back mid month to see
what I create with the rest of my new "background" paper.
