Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope this week has found you well. I was up most of the night with a hungry little girl, but I’m not complaining. Just thrilled she is here with us. A true miracle. Both of my kids are… Kids. Still can’t get over saying that…. Thank you Jesus….
Today’s challenge is TAKE A PICTURE! Create anything that is film, camera, photograph related…. I chose to work with a couple of Lawn Fawn stamp sets and paired them with a technique I picked up from the cute Lisa Spangler… GESSO! Here’s a look (all supplies are listed at the bottom of the post):
Let me explain. I started with a white piece of card stock and used several different color distress stains to create the background. I then took a thick layer of Gesso and applied it with a palette knife… I then took the envelope pattern stamp set from Hero Arts and pressed down into the gesso and got this amazing texture as a result.
To bring out the texture even more, I rubbed some Weathered Wood Distress Paint mixed with water over the top…… I then took the filmstrip image from the Hero Arts/Studio Calico Borders set to incorporate the sentiment….
And there you have it. A little mixed media card. I don’t do mixed media often as I don’t have the skill for it, but after seeing Lisa’s technique video, I had to give it a try!
The wonderfully amazing and sweet Heidi is offering up a $50 gift certificate to the Simon Says Stamp online store!!!!!! HELLO!!!!!! That’s awesome!!!
