Groovy Girl - Challenge 16 We Love to Create Challenge Blog

Today is the start of a new challenge over on the We Love to Create blog

Challenge 16 - Anything Creative /Mixed Media Goes

And we have a great prize from our generous sponsor Premium Art Brands 

This really was a fun quick make, I needed a card in a hurry and one of the best things about Pan Pastels is no drying time.

1- Cut a piece of paper to fit the card blank
2- Cover the card with a layer of white and blend orange tint over the top
3- Lay a stencil over the top and apply yellow ochre and white over the top
4- Lay a different stencil over the top and apply turquoise and white over the top
5- Lay your focal image stencil over the top, apply magenta shade along one side of the image and blend the colour out across the other side.  
6- Finish of by doodling with white and black pens.

Thank you for popping by, please check out the wonderful makes from my teamies 
and join in this great challenge.

Anything Goes for the challenge on The Artistic Stamper blog

So it's the 1st of August today and the start of a new challenge theme on The Artistic Stampers blog

This month's theme is

Which is a favorite of mine as we get to see so many types of creative loveliness. 

- Spread texture paste, through a mask, remove any texture paste that may have ended up in areas you do not want it. 
- Push some beads into the paste for added interest.

- Coat the whole canvas in gesso

- Start spraying your canvas with your chosen colours, I used the orange and yellow from the Dylusions line. 

- Not quite sure what happened to the colours in this photo, Sorry.
-Stamp on the canvas with a calligraphy mat and brown ink and blend some ink around the edges.
- Add ink from the Dylusions slate spray in areas around the texture past to highlight it. Only use a little and add water if it becomes to intense.

- Stampe three butterflies onto scrap card and colour them in with the same colours.
-Add extra detail with a white paint pen and cut them out.

- Glue into place on the canvas board after adding a layer of mat medium strength. 
-Add more interest by going over areas with the white paint pen, I went over most of the calligraphy script.

What's your favorite challenge themes?
