Mixed Media Monthly #27 - Travel


It's time for a new challenge over at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. Our theme this month is "Travel." Our Guest Designer and sponsor is "The Frugal Crafter" herself, Lindsay Weirich. She's giving away a spot to her Craftsy Mixed Media Mix It Up class to our lucky random winner!! She's also offering 1/2 off to her class to all our followers. Be sure to go to the blog and check it out!!


I created a "Travel" theme tag, inspired by Tim Holtz's July 2016 tag. I created the background from an old map that I covered with Distress Inks. Then I stamped a few of Tim's stamps on it in Black Soot and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks. I used some old Crackle Paints on the cloud and airplane dies. I also used a stencil with Black Soot Distress Ink for the sentiment. On the film strip I used Tim's Chit Chat words. The suitcases are a Stampotique stamp that I added some distress inks and glittery accents to. To finish it off I died Tim's ribbon with distress stains and added the Journey token. I can't wait to see your travel theme creation. Thanks for stopping by!
