Doing What I Love!

It's time for our New Anything Mixed Media Goes at
Here is my make for October.

It all began with - a splashing of colours
and some stencilling from AALL& Create
and Tim Holtz

I die cut a bunch of Hexagons and 
one of Tim's Wldflower from
some oriental DP

Did you notice I cut two extra flower heads?
Adding more texture with randomly adding
opaque crackle paste mixed with
Nuvo shimmer powder.

Before it was dry
and after

Added a little bit of interest with some random circles.
and dropped brown Magical's on top and 
behind some of the hexagons to highlight.
On to the flower - attached the two heads
adding texture paste to the centre, roughed up and sprayed
with more Magical's (love the shimmer)

adding leftovers to the left hand corner.

 a twine bow, teeny sentiment
from Tim's Small Talk

and adhered to kraft cardboard base.

That's it from me for this month but be sure to head over
and see what Marvelous Mixed Media Makes
are waiting to be  swooned over by 
our Talented Guest Betta and Design Team.
Hope to see yours there too.
Thanks for visiting

Thinking of You...

My favourite colour challenge - Color Hues latest Challenge is live
and what gorgeous colours for us to play with.
Check out all the inspiration for Challenge #73
from the Talented Guests and Designers.
You will want to play like me for sure.

These colours go together beautifully don't they?
It has been a while since I participated here and 
made time to play - housework can wait.
After seeing Nancy use her gingko dies recently
I thought my completely different ones would
go nicely with these colours.
I inked my SU gingko flowers in Tangarine Tango,
 softer in Calypso Coral. Background
is heat embossed in WOW clear gloss.
Lightly sponged the background
and added die cuts for dimention.
Some have a touch of shimmer.
Finished with die cutting the sentiment
 shorter from the set.
