Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #37 - A Year of Choices


It's time for a new challenge over at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. It's our 3rd Birthday and we are celebrating with our "Year of Choices" Challenge. You can pick any theme that we've had over the last year. The challenges are listed in our graphic. Our sponsor is Donna Downey Studios and she is offering a $50 gift certificate to her online store!! We've also updated the look of our Web site so be sure to click over there and take a look.



For my project, I chose to "Put a Stamp on It." I used this big house stamp from Carabelle Studio in France. You can purchase this stamp at Topflight Stamps. The stamp is called Maison.

Maison
I created the background applying Dina Wakely paints and adding some stamping an rub-ons. I took this photo before I decided to add the rub-ons.


I colored the house by putting a baby wipe over my finger and rubbing it on a Tim Holtz Crayon and then rubbing on the paper. I adhered the house to the canvas with thick foam tape. To finish it off I added some Prima flowers that I thought looked like a hedge. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. This is beautiful. I loved your tip about how to use a babywipe with the distress crayons. Never thought of it, always used my finger till now. Needless to say, didn't really use that technique a lot because of dirty fingers :-)
