Mixed Media Wall Hook - Mixed Media World November Challenge

Happy Happy Sunday Sweet Friends

Today begins the new challenge at Mixed Media World and the theme is Anything Goes (as long as it's Mixed Media).  Our Sponsor for this challenge is That's Crafty who is giving the lucky winner a $20.00 (Euro) to spend in their fabulous online store.

For this challenge I decided to create a Mixed Media Project using an old Wall Hook I had sitting around the house.  I thought it would be a fun canvas to work on and it was actually a very quick project and here are the details of what I did:

*I added the Eiffel Tower image to the front of the wall hook with Mod Podge.

*I used a stencil (unknown company) and molding paste to create the decorative edge on the right side.

I gathered some mixed media objects such as metal and plastic flowers, chains, other scrap metal pieces.

*Used Gesso to glue them down and let dry.

*Covered it all with more Gesso and let dry.

*Used lots of colors of Distress Inks by Tim Holz and brushed colors all over the Gesso until well covered.  I would allow the colors to dry in between.  I also would come back and add more colors over the course of the day until I got the look I was wanting.  (The list of paint colors used is listed below).

*Used some old lace to create the bow.

I hope you feel inspired to join in our next challenge as well as checking out the amazing projects created by the DT.

I am also entering this project into the following challenge:

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…
