Celebrating our #100th at Creative Artiste Mixed Media

We are celebrating our #100th Challenge at
with this challenge a little different to our usual Anything Goes.
Christmas is just a few weeks away
 and have added the option of 
Anything Goes Mixed Media with a
Christmas Theme.
Our Talented Guest Betta
and the Team have gone with
a special Mixed Media Christmas make.

After coming home from a little holiday
I was full of ideas but Mo and Jo were overwhelmed
hence it took me a few days to narrow down what I wanted to create.
As it turned out what I started with is nothing like
what I had in mind and in the end it just wasn't me
so I started all over again and again!
When you want to do something special you 
overthink it and try too hard. 
In the end and running out of time I am
finally happy with my Christmas Creation.
Here is some progress photos
I wasn't happy with this background and it
did go in the bin only to come out the next day.
(Things weren't going to planat this stage)
adding kraft paper with splatters and rolled to top part
then added rolled paper from an old book.
Inked the edges with AA Rusty Brown Wax.

Then deciding what elements to add.
Art stones, crystal snow and cheescloth.

Tim's Holiday Greens, Deer with more snow,
Die cut envelope and note

Joy die is Kaisercraft inked and covered in Nuvo
Hollywood Red Sparkle Dust and adhered to
thick cardboard. Somewhere along the way
I lost the itty bitty i.

Finished with some sequins, gems and chipboard pieces I left natural.

Design Team Member Fiona has kindly donated 
this prize for one lucky Winner!

Be sure to add your Mixed Media to Our Blog for a chance to be chosen the Winner.
Looking forward to seeing all the lovely projects.
Hope yours will be there. 

PS - As we do each year we take January off to freshen up
our creativeness and get over Christmas/New Year festivities 😊
Thank you for all your kind comments during the year.
See you in Febraury!

Have a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

Be True to You!

I love the bright bold colours and this time
went all out as you can see. 
Background is a mix of Tim's Oxide inks -

Prize Ribbon, Fossilized Amber
and Spiced Marmalade.
Lindy's Grab a Guy Gold.
Flowers are Tim's Wildflower Stems #1
Added stamping from
AALL&Create One of a Kind/Scripts

Sentiment is from Power of the Word.
Finished with white splatters and 
attached to white card base.

Till next time -
