mixed media challenge #41 – colour

hello everyone!!

can you believe yet another month has gone by and we are presenting you with yet a new challenge at Mixed Media Monthly Challenge … this one is all about colour

No automatic alt text available.

as well, we have partnered up with Rubber  Dance Stamps.

Original original new banner  Rubber Dance offers a unique line of Red Rubber Stamps, UN-mounted, without cling cushion!. they are lovingly made in Norway and they are shipped world wide.

now for my project i was sent the quirky Funny Fungi!!! (http://www NULL.rubberdance NULL.com/funny-fungi)

here is what i created and how i created it!

i started out using some paint on a 8″ round Gel Press reusable gel printing plate. i just dabbed paints here and there

and using my brayer, spread the paint until i had  covered the circle and then laid my sheet of paper over, pressed and pulled. i also mixed some paints to the side on my craft sheet, brayered and pull…and just kept adding until i was satisfied.

i then added in some stencils and i am sorry to say but by this point i was so lost in the process i forgot to take pictures but here is where i was after the first couple of stencils on a second sheet i created at the same time

so once i had created my back ground circle it was time to focus on my stamp! i dug out some distress markers and just coloured

once i was finished coloured i had a bright idea so out came some more makers, my ruler and archival ink

i cut the little mushroom out from the center of the stamp and then stamped and coloured round the whole circle!

as i was creating my piece i couldn’t help but think how we are all so very different in this world; whether we are people, flowers, trees or mushrooms… we are all our own kind of beauty so that is where my quote came from that i printed out and added to my page

that is it for me for today! do drop on over to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge (https://mixedmediamc NULL.blogspot NULL.com/) page to see what my fellow teamies have come up with and play along!

until next time

okay now that those details are over let’s get into how i created my page

i was searching through some shelves for something, who knows what, and came across one of of Ken Olivers mixed media boards and my walnut ink kit and that is what triggered my idea!

so i started out by applying some crackle paste through the dragonfly stencil and i set that aside to dry. once it was dry i started using my sprays…once my dragonfly was sprayed with the terra cotta i covered it and then applied the other sprays on the outside edges.

then it was all about letting it dry. i loved how it turned out… and then i had this brilliant idea!!  why not add a few gems to highlight the dragonfly!! so out came my crystals

and i layered them into my dragonfly

i love all the crackles on this piece… it truly reminds me of the crackles you see in old pieces of ceramic…

i am wondering if perhaps i should layer a think layer of resin to preserve this piece…thinking…

thanks for stopping by.  don’t forget to play along!!
