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

  1. This is a stunning piece, Diana! Love seeing that you cut the stamp apart (I do that a lot to mine) so you could use the small fungi. I love that sentiment – have it on a huge wooden sign in my craft room! Thank you for using our fungi stamp so beautifully! ♥

  2. Beautiful project! All the detail you created around the brayer and stencilled circle is amazing. I enjoyed seeing the process you followed too and I like your technique of stamping, colouring and fussy cutting the Funny Fungi as they stand out beautifully from the background 😁. Wishing you a Happy October and Weekend! J 😊

  3. Beautiful. Fun with those little shrooms all the way around. Hugz
