Creative Artiste #19 October 2016

Yay! It's Friday and the weekend is starting early for me as it's my youngest grandson's first birthday. There will be plenty of fun, family, presents and party food all weekend. I hope you all have something nice to look forward to too.
The first Friday of the month means it's the start of a new challenge at Creative Artiste  We have some fabulous new DT members to announce today and would love you to visit the blog and show your support for them.

A big Thank You to everyone who entered Challenge #18 in September. Your projects were wonderful and the winner has been announced on the blog.

Our theme is this month is
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"
and we are sponsored by

The Dusty Attic

I have a 12" x 10" (30.5 cm x 25.5 cm) canvas to show today.

I started by colouring the background in horizontal strokes of two shades of pink acrylic. I then used a Stamposaurus stencil with homemade lilac coloured texture paste. While the paste was still wet I added gold Frantage and heated.

I used a frame stamp and the Believe verse stamp from Bee Crafty to create the sentiment panel. I cut around it and added Frantage. I used two metal charms from Craft Box to create the flower above the sentiment. I painted them white, added a painted purple half bead and Frantaged.

I made the frame using a Katy Sue silicon mould. Once dry I painted it lilac and edged with gold gilding wax. The heart locket is an X-cut die and gold embossing powder. The chipboard branches were painted white and sprinkled with Frantage.

I sprayed the three roses with violet Artiste Spritzing Ink then added gold gilding wax. I finished the canvas with the DREAM key from Craft Box.

Now please visit the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog to meet the new DT members and see the wonderful projects created by the talented team. Remember to have fun and enter your "Anything Mixed Media Goes" creations in the challenge.
