Creative Artiste #30 September 2017

This is my second post for today. Please scroll down to see my Crafts Galore Encore challenge post.

Welcome to my September 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 #29 in August. 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:

Scrapmatts & Papertole Australia

I have decorated a  5"x 7" (12 x 18 cm) canvas using some of the gorgeous products I received from Scrapmatts.

I used the heart lattice stencil with texture paste for the background and gessoed over.

I tore up a printed vintage postcard and randomly glued that down before adding patches of  DecoArt Crackle Paste. I then dry brushed with gesso to knock back the black. I splattered some red and black DecoArt spray across the canvas.

I used the dividing piece of chipboard from the Ornate Frames and heat embossed it in silver. The words are from the Assorted Words 28 set. I painted them in red acrylic and secured the montage in place with a gel medium.

I added some paper roses and buttons from my stash. I painted the buttons red before I tinged them and the roses with silver Pebeo Wax. I finished the canvas by adding the wax around the edges.

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