October Mixed Media Challenge

Hello, Crafty Friends!

Welcome back! Phew, time has flown by! Hope you all had a great Summer!
It's Sunday 1st October today which means, it's the start of a new Mixed Media Challenge over at STAMPlorations. As you know Anything Mixed Media Goes as long as it is not a card and you use at least one stencil.

My DT contribution for October is ... a tag ....

Well, I did go to town on this one using some of STAMPlorations' new nesting dies in combination with other bits and bobs. I cut the second largest of the Manila Tag Dies, applied some Glitter Frosting Paste through the Peonies All Over Stencil, added some watercolour to the background and an Arty Border to create the background tag on which I layered the other elements. These were: half a die cut Curly Label from vellum, the birds on a branch, a Trendy Spring Flower, some fibers, gems and sentiment. I used a length of Washi tape to attach the Curly Label and double sided tape for the fibers.

Here is a closer look ...

I hope you feel inspired to dig into your crafty resourcefulness and create something to enjoy  .... why not link it up with the Mixed Media Challenge over at STAMPlorations. The theme for the Mixed Media Challenge is always Anything Mixed Media Goes except cards which means projects such as tags, ATCs, canvases, layouts, art journal pages etc, are perfect for entering, and you must have used at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. The challenge will close at the end of the month. You can find the full challenge details plus more Mixed Media inspiration here on the STAMPlorations Blog.

Ooops, almost forgot to mention the prizes: one winner as chosen by the Mixed Media DT will receive a $10 gift certificate and two Top Picks will receive a $5 gift certificate each, all of course redeemable at the STAMPlorations Shop ... but that's not all ... if there are 25 or more entries one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive two standard sized stencils of their choice.

That's it from me for today. I shall be back soon with another project to share.

Have a lovely day!
