I have been wanting to try to combine my scrapbooking and love of mixed media so I thought I would try to start doing some of the challenges at Mixed Media Monday.
I began working on a piece of chipboard, using a stencil and rubbing molding paste through it and after it was dry a coat of gesso. I have several layers of paint that are stenciled or drybrushed on and wiped away to give a sheet layer. The photo was soaked in water and then the edges sanded to remove the emulsion and then painted with a wash of Golden acrylic. The words are rub-ons and the tiles are Scrabble tiles. The felt lace at the bottom is by Prima, as are the black jewels. The fabric tab is by Amy Butler and I sewed it on and added a brad by CI.
It was freeing to work so messily and to just let the project go where it wanted. I will definitely try this again! Happy 4th, everyone!
