Creative Artiste #89 December 2022

 ....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'm a firm believer in recycling and I'm not keen on single use plastics, so, I wanted to do something with the bowl a take away salad came in. I turned it into a snack dish to use for all those naughty nibbles we like too much at Christmas. 

The first thing I did was to use a DecoArt gold acrylic paint through an Aall & Create stencil around the bowl on the outside. I also painted under the rim too.

Next, I coloured some white tissue paper with red DecoArt Media Mister. Once dry, I tore the tissue into strips and glued it around the outside of the bowl with PVA. I then used a brush to dab gold acrylic randomly around the bowl.

To finish off I painted four glass beads with the gold Acrylic and stuck them to the sides of the bowl with some green beads.
Now I have a dish in my favourite Christmas colours of red, green and gold. It will get plenty of use over the festive period, and maybe beyond.

Now it's your turn to have fun and create your mixed media projects. You can enter our challenge as many times as you like. A full list of the rules is on the challenge blog. For more inspiration please visit the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog to see the fabulous mixed media projects created by our multi talented team.
Remember to have fun crafting and enter your "Anything Mixed Media Goes" creations in our 
December challenge. 

This is the last challenge of the year and Creative Artiste will be taking a well earned break in January. The crafty fun will resume on Friday February 3rd 2023.

Enjoy the festive season everyone!
