A Mixed Media Challenge

Hello there ... 

It's the first day of August and we are expecting a Spanish Plume today ... that means very hot weather! A big difference from yesterday when it was cool, wet and stormy - which is generally how it is when we have a funeral to attend...

At the weekend my sweet great nephew Ross paid us a visit with his Grandfather and he loves to play on my computer making videos of himself being silly ... So whilst he played I played ... 

I've wanted to join in Mona's Mixed Media Colour Challenge for a while even though I have limited supplies ... But I did improvise a little ...

This is the colour scheme


I started with this little tin - the smallest from a set of 3, which, you as you can see, had faded badly from sitting on my windowsill


And this is the end result 


After covering the top and sides with papers I got out my paints and used some bubble wrap to make those white dots and used my fingers and a wet tissue to smear some paint over the paper



I don't have any stencils so I cut a heart shape from a piece of plastic and used modelling paste mixed with paint to make those hearts ... and I dragged a cocktail stick through the sides to get some texture ... Ok, they are not perfect but that's what mixed media is about isn't it ... creativity?


I also used Washi tape, rubons, stamps, lace, distress ink, a pen nib, a couple of sparkly stones and a rose ...


Well it looks a little brighter than before ... Now I have 2 more to do

Thanks for stopping by ...

Have a lovely day
