I'm Excited to be a

Today is the day I get to announce that I have been invited
to be part of the Design Team over at
Creative Artiste Mixed Media Blog
so on the first of the month I will be showing you
some (hopefully) Creative Mixed Media.
I recently stepped outside one craft door and
another one opened a little bit further.
 To all my blog friends that
wondered what direction I was heading - it's
to have fun experimenting more in Mixed Media!

Here is my first project as a Designer for
Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge Blog.

As with  Mixed Media there is usually a LOT going on.
As my journey into MM is fairly new
I didn't have a plan in mind as to what I was going to create
so just started off on a 5 by 7 canvas
I always gesso them just in case. After that was dry
I cut up bits of plaster's tape (dry wall) and adhered to the corners.
Adding colour with Tainted Love Teal
and Witches Potion Purple Magical's.
I then stenciled the background with
Tim's Stone Stencil and Dutch Doobadoo Pop Art
with white texture paste.
Added some Kaisercraft script and
waterdrops from Impression Obsession
then rows of cotton before
adhering a large flourish and a SB die.
Butterfly was cut from Mulberry Paper and
topped with a flower, adding more either side.
Added a few Liquid Pearl drops and some
white splatters, some shimmer on the flowers
and butterfly with a sentiment to finish.

A few close ups!

Pop over to Our Blog
and welcome the Designers - returning and new
 and check out what wonderful creations they have made,
then join us this month for some fun Mixed Media Mayhem.
Hope to see yours in our Gallery!
