A Reminder from a 'Mixed Up Girl'

It's the Middle of the Month and time for me to remind you
Our Current Challenge over at Mix It Up has been
running for a few weeks now. Have you checked it out yet?

Here is what I had fun making and playing with our
optional twist of Distressing!
It can be using inks or tools. I chose both.
There is a lot going on here so I will start with
my background. I had a fellow Mixed Up Girl
Cheryl (big Thank You) come to stay with me 
after we went to a craft show and 
she brought with her -  her gelli plate.
Well I had soooooooo much fun playing with this
new technique to me and I found a perfect piece 
to start off my creation (if you call it that)

Here's a few close ups

These are the products I used here - 
Texture Paste
Pop Art Stencil
Inka Gold - Apricot/Hydrangea
Dylusions Spray - Fuchsia
SB Die cut from gelli plate background
STAMPlorations Artful Flutters/Mixed Grunge
Metallic Thread
Distress Inks - Black Soot/Aged Mahogany
and Dried Marigold.
Think I got everything!

Thanks for dropping in - love reading your comments
Hope to see your project Here

Thought I would join in the current
Mixed Media challenge at

There's lots of Texture here. Check it out Here
