just BE- Mixed Media challenge

Yes, you read that right.... mixed media challenge!! Well, this is my first time trying to use mixed media-have been wanting to for forever but, just didn't have the time to watch the videos or traveling for work (a lot lately) soo- I finally tried it (without watching any videos- be easy on me, LOL!!)

I used the Mixed Media Color Challenge hosted by two of my blogging friends as a starting point.

 
Mona and Sue are mixed media experts.... I'm just experimenting!!



So, another blogging friend Broni used a Prima Doll stamp on her CTD card a couple weeks ago and I just had to have one. What did I do- started by using fibre paste and one of Mona's stencils (graduated dots) on the background, layered with gesso, and sponged on ink. I think I used two layers of gesso and ink sponging. Lastly added random stamping with MFT's Border It-Mod Borders and a sentiment from Verve's Words of Wisdom. My tan is the little pieces of trim I added to the top- may have a little too much white?

Had a lot of fun making this.... totally NEW to me and I think I need to take the time for some classes or videos :)

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
