Then comes along my former WMS DT buddy, and 'honored to call' my blogging friend, Mona Pendleton, posting a new Mixed Media Color challenge blog - and I knew it was time to get out all the things I'd been gathering and try to create something. I have long admired Mona's artistic skills in this area and appreciate how she describes just what she has done on her creations - so that I thought - 'well, maybe I can give this a shot!"
For this week's challenge - Mona and Sue asked us to use light pink, silver and black and to combine at least two types of mediums other than just an inked image.
Here are the layers in the order I put them on. I stenciled some flowers in pink acrylic paint on the left side and just painted some pink brush strokes on the right side. I stamped my sentiment in black ink on the bottom right corner. I stenciled a mini burst using antique silver acrylic paint on the left side and mini chicken wire along the right side. I added Magic Mesh to two corners. Then I painted over the whole frame with Clear Rock Candy Ranger Distress Crackle Paint and went to eat supper (ie had to leave the room so it would dry - I'm not good with patience!!) I wanted to tone down the shininess a bit - so I brushed on some white Picket Fence Crackle paint here and there. And finally - I die cut some flowers and adhered them in the corner - adding more white crackle paint on their petals.
Here are close ups so you can hopefully see what I described above.
I think you can just see the pink stenciled flowers on this pic below
And I used my cute as a bug grandniece, Mila, as the center of attraction for my frame.here.
