Creative Artiste #75 September 2021

Well the summer was fun packed and we managed a little holiday and lots of lovely days out. We also celebrated a little princess's birthday and a big princess's engagement! Like I said, fun packed. But it was back to school for the little princess yesterday and back to routine for me. Fortunately it's the weekend tomorrow so we can readjust to the changes slowly. 

Meanwhile ....

  ....Welcome to a new challenge at

Creative Artiste is a monthly 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 the challenge last month. Your projects were all wonderful and our winners have been announced on the blog.
Our theme is always
"Anything Mixed Media Goes"
We have opportunities to be a Guest Designer for all our winners.

I have made a canvas this month to show you. The canvas measures 12"x 9" (31 x 23cm). 

I started by stamping with the text stamp Vintage Note from Stampendous then I added some texture paste through stencil #17 by AALL and Create. Next I played with some DOX Reinkers and water. I used Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon. I kept blotting the colours with a cloth until I was happy with the blends.

Once dry I added strips of lace from my stash and three flowers using the Inkylicious Oriental Poppy stamp on watercolour card. I used the Spiced Marmalade Reinker with water to colour them. These were all fixed to the canvas with Matte Gel.

I finished the canvas with an old Bee Crafty word stamp Faith and darkened the edges with black ink.
