Mixed Media World Challenge - Anything Goes on Wood

Happy Happy Sunday My Dear Sweet Friends

It's time for our next challenge at Mixed Media World  This challenge is "Anything Goes on Wood".  The DT made some more amazing projects this challenge and I hope you will visit our challenge blog and check everything out as well as join in the challenge.  There is plenty of time to make something for our challenge.  Our sponsor this month is Artist Trading Post who is giving the lucky winner of this challenge a $20.00 (UK) Voucher.

My DT project is an 8"x8" piece of wood that I have had for quite some time.  I painted it with a base coat of blue (the trees).  I added lots of other colors with various Distress paints from Tim Holz.

I then used the tree stencil to protect the blue color of the trees to add the other colors around the entire base and allowed time for drying.  I then used a variety of objects such as leaf shape buttons, fabric lace, decorative floral supplies, molding paste, gesso, E6000 and seed beads.  The colors of Distress Paints I used are:  wild honey, peeled paint, mustard seed, antique linen, brushed pewter, spun sugar, antiqued bronze, barn door, broken china, salty ocean, chipped sapphire and fired brick.

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
