Creative Artiste #32 November 2017

I hope you are all well and apologise if I have not visited your blogs yet. That means that things are still up in the air for me. Hopefully I will have internet for a couple of days next week and be able to visit your blogs. In the meantime ...
Welcome to my November post for 
We are a challenge blog for everyone who likes to mix their media. So, as long as you like to use various mediums on your creations we'd love to see you enter the challenge.
A big Thank You to everyone who entered Challenge #31 in October. Your projects were fabulous and our winner has been announced on the blog. 

Our theme is always
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"

This month we are being sponsored by:
Lindy's Gang

I have created this 7"x 9.5" (18 x 24 cm) project.

I've used corrugated cardboard for the base and layers which I coated in white gesso. I randomly glued on patches of orange card and torn book pages then stamped some small butterflies. I also added bits of die-cut netting and used texture paste through a honeycomb stencil.
I fixed the layers onto the base using a heavy gel medium for dimension and coloured them using Lindy's Magicals in T-bird Turquoise and Ocean Breeze Blue.

I die cut a Memory Box  floral circle and coloured it with Lindy's Magicals Summer Lovin' Sun and Mango Mania before cutting it in two and adding to the project.

The three butterflies were stamped in black Archival ink, coloured with the same orange toned Magicals and fussy cut. The large butterfly stamp is from Carabelle and the medium butterfly is from Bee Crafty.

The smallest butterfly and the sentiment stamp are from PaperArtsy. I finished the project with some white flowers from my stash.

This is a month long challenge so you have time to create your mixed media projects and enter up to three times. A full list of the rules is on the challenge blog.
