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:
