Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #43 - Photo Inspiration



It's time for another challenge over at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog. This month we have a festive photo inspiration. Our sponsor is BoozyBear and they provided the design team with really fun laser cut wooden shapes. I used some snowflakes and circles in my project.


To make my project I used a 5 x 5 white art board from Dick Blick. I used a TCW Circle stencil that is filled with circle on the background. I colored the circle silver and gold using silver and gold Dreamweaver Embossing paste. Then I brushed DecoArt Gold Interference over the whole thing. I painted the snowflakes silver and also added the Gold Interference on them, then added glitter. I ran silver and gold ink around the edges of the board to finish it off. I heat embossed the Believe sentiment from Lavinia Stamps and inked the edges and also brushed Interference on it. To put it together I added three of the wooden circle shapes in their natural color with hot glue and then added the snowflakes and sentiment. Finally, I put a few iridescent pearls on the snowflakes and sentiment. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will play with us this month.

  6. Wow such a gorgeous creation... love the mysterious touch to it - maybe it's the font of the word Believe, but it intrigues me :)

  10. I'm loving everything about this piece! The depth, texture, coloring and of course the snowflakes! It's cold enough here that I'd love some actual snow. We had a light dusting this morning, but it's all since melted. Thanks for sharing your lovely project. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
