The Day has come to Show You...

Today is the day I get to post my very first project 
as an Ambassador for the

Here is our Mood Board for November

As soon as I saw this I wanted to do something with
the image of that LONG RED HAIR!
When I walked into the Studio I went looking
for a suitable stamp and found this

and so my journey into Mixed Media really begins.

I heat embossed my image in black
and smooching the background with 
Tim's Festive Berries Distress Ink mixed with 
Forever Red Perfect Pearls to add shimmer.
next came
a bit more colour before cutting with a
Postage Stamp Die.
Now on to the background using
Black Textured Card Stock.
Next step to add a bit of dimension with
Dina Wakley Tornado Stencil using
white texture paste.
and lots more colours with Mica Flakes
Finnabair Glass Beads and Fantasy Snow
with melted red gelatos painted with
Metallic Gold Rush Paint.
Then die cut flourishes in gold and black
and my flowers inked with
Metallic Paint in Red Wine and Rusty Red
 scored to add shape.
Added some yellow glitter to the centre
and a few gold material flowers to the back.
You can see a tiny bit of the original colour
peeking out from the centre of the flower.
I needed to take the stark white away from the
stamped image so inked all around with
a shimmery black wax.
Thought the cut out sentiments were perfect
for this amazing image.
Did you notice I even found an earring
to add from my stash?
Just a few more finishing touches with sequins
then attaching to a corrugated cardboard back
and punched holes to add my gold coil ready for hanging.

Here are a few of the products purchased from the
 Art and Soul Studio - It's Craft Heaven
especially when you get to visit and browse
(takes quite a while)
and relax with scrumptious home made yummies
and an amazing cuppa.
If you aren't lucky enough to visit
you can browse online and purchase.

Oh my God Ina, this is truly a work of ART! I had to come to your blog and give you lots and lots of praise. This is one of the best mixed media art displays I've ever seen. Every single thing you did added to this glorious piece and I, personally, would not have changed a thing. Great work my friend. They chose the perfect ambassador!

Stunning mixed media project and wow have you embraced the art of mixed media. Love how you combined the distress inks with the perfect pearls. Great layout, lots of interest and texture. Moody and marvellous. Great take on the inspiration photo and your initial inspiration from the flowing red hair and what a fabulous stamp. You are a great ambassador for the brand Ina x
