A house filled with love….and a new challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles

It's February:
the month of love
time for a new challenge at 

Now as always there are several ways to link up to the challenge:
Scrapbook sketch
Card Sketch 
or a project using the theme however YOU interpret it.

For me this month I went with the theme inspired by this
Col 3:14
"And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony."

I created an 8x8 mixed media canvas.
I pulled together all sorts of leftovers on my desk and began
gluing them across the canvas.
There are flowers, gems, chipboard,
and more to be found on here.

A cover of Gesso was applied over everything giving me
a blank canvas full of texture to work on.

Several Tattered Angels mists were applied then blotted,
then misted again.
Followed by several of my Silk's Acrylic Glazes.

The sentiment was printed onto a piece of patterned paper by
Club Scrap, the words torn apart,
and then after being glued to the canvas outlined with a charcoal pencil.

Some Modeling paste was scraped through a Crafter's Workshop 
stencil and then once dried color was added with a wash made from
some of the mists.
Some random stamping was applied at the end.
Because the surface is so uneven ether is never a 
clean image which adds to the overall appeal.

Just a shot to show you how much texture.

Make sure to head over to SEM to see what the other designers
