Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #44 - Ring in the New Year


It's time for another challenge over at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. This month our challenge is to Ring in the New Year - anyway you like it. I decided to use new supplies on my project. We have a fun mixed media prize package for our random monthly winner.

I created an art journal page. I tore up Jane Davenport napkins into little pieces and decoupaged them onto the blank page. Then I printed out the 2018 numbers from a Word document and decoupaged them on the page. I added some shading to the letters with a gray Faber Castell Big Brush Artist Pen. Then I added white accents with an Edding White Pastel Pen and black border with a Memento Black pen.

Then I stamped the Celebrating Cat with Archival Ink and colored it in with Copic Markers. I wrote the sentiment words and cut them out and adhered them to the page with double sided tape. Finally, I added some Studio Calico star sequins and Viva Glitter pen accents around the happy cat.

I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!!!
