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…

Orchis Last Enchanter - Morgan's Art World

Happy Monday Sweet Friends
My goodness it's the final day of October and this year is almost over.  Time passes way to quickly.
Today I am sharing my Design Team Card for the Classic Design Team Challenge that is now underway through November 27th.  Our sponsor this month is the talented artist Morgan Fitzsimmon owner of Morgan's Art World on Facebook.

The image I am using is called "Orchis Last Enchanter."  I think she's a gorgeous image and to be quite honest I was intimidated to color her.  I desperately wanted to do her justice.  It took several attempts at coloring her before I was pretty happy with the results.  She's really a great image to work with and she's actually one of my most favorite digi's.   I made some flowers with one of my flower die cuts.  I absolutely love these flowers and will be making many more in the future.
