Today is Day #3 for my Growing in Unity Guest Designer week! Halfway done already?? Time does fly when you are having fun.
Today I am taking a departure from the last two days, and presenting a mixed media project using The Strongest People.
Although mixed media always scares me, I love making it because I am such a control freak and with this I can't be. It is fun to know that any "mistakes" will look just fine!
To create this background, I started out with the Summer Splash paper from Stampington and Co., and added some gold and silver Encore ink. I embossed the silver with Clear EP for added texture. I used sprays and direct to paper in various places and then stamped the bird cage from the stamp set using Poptone Blu Raspberry Ink. On a separate piece of Summer Splash, I stamped the sentiment with Poptone Hot Chocolate ink. All the edges were distressed.
I added Juliet Natural Crochet lace, Aqua Organza ribbon and two colors from Hemptique's Aquamarine Hemp Cord Set (all Really Reasonable Ribbon), and tied two little charms (a key and the word "Live") in the bow. A couple of Kaiser Latte pearls, and it was all done!
Be sure to stop by each day through Friday this week, and leave a comment on each Unity post, as there are two Itty Bitty stamp sets going to one lucky winner that comes back each day this week!
See you tomorrow!
