The first challenge is called"What's Your Style"
Share a project that showcases your signature style. Dig into your hoard and pull out items that make you shout with crafty joy! Whip up something that has your creative name all over it. Do you, because no one is you-er than you!
One lucky winner will receive this prize pack, donated by Gloria Stengel Designs!
The first part of the challenge is easy, I hoard everything, from paper and embellishments to paints, stencils, mists and more.
The WHAT'S YOUR STYLE part had me more stumped.
Depending on the day seems to depend on what my style is.
Yet after doing up one project I rallied what I really needed to share.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE
doing mixed media pieces.
I have numerous journals I am always working in as well as canvases in all stages of "in progress" around my room.
So today I share and Art Journal page…
Liquitex Gesso & Acylic Ink, Dylusions mist, Glimmer Mist, Ranger & Tsukineko ink,
Gelatos, Stencils from Crafter's Workshop, Stencil Girl & Club Scrap,
Stamps from Prima & Club Scrap, Silks Acrylic Glaze,
Sharpies, Charcoal Pencil, Washii tape
The base of the page is watercolor paper which I wet lightly,
Misted with Dylusions mists in Squeezed Orange and Vibrant Turquoise
then spread and blended with a wet paintbrush to mimic watercolor paint.
Silks Acrylic Glaze in Coral Berry was rubbed in spots.
Gelatos were scrabbled onto a wet stencil by
and used as a stamp.
Tsukinko ink was also rubbed through a chevron Club Scrap stencil
Gesso was rubbed through a Crafter's Workshop stencil
then outlined with a charcoal pencil and several Sharpie markers.
Tattered Angels Glimmer mist was misted through sequin waste in spots.
Several strips of Washii tape were added (another one of my hoarding bits)
and stamping done with Club Scrap & Prima stamps.
Liquitex Acylic ink was splattered across the page and random machine stitching was done.
I kept all the long thread tails just because they made me happy.
