August 2020 My Mood Challenge***Winner***

Post by Tammey » Sat Aug 01, 2020 9:30 am

Per random.org this months winner is #7 MrsFleck/Mrs Fleck. Congrats I will send your gift card asap.

Each month depending on my mood is what the challenge will be. It could be a recipe challenge, quote challenge, technique challenge, movie inspiration challenge, etc... I might run the same challenge for more than a month or change it up(the mood thing again). lol

I am in the mood to make a mess...this month you must make  mixed media shapes for your background...I used ink, texture paste with a stencil and cut squares from that to make my background. You must also use at least 1 tag.

Image

For the fine print....
This can be a paper or digital layout, pocket page, or card.
All work must be new. One entry per Cherry.
You may combine with one other challenge that allows that.
Please link your work here. Deadline is August 31, 2020.
A random winner will be selected for a $5 ACOT gift card from me!


***Please remember only one entry per cherry. I want to keep it fair for all the entrants. ***
Any questions or if I forgot anything please ask or tell me.

Such an adorable example. I usually shy away from mixed media so this really will be a challenge :)

I love this idea! Often when I try to make a mixed media background, I like some of it but not other parts. This idea totaling solves that problem.

Mixed media - Q-tip messy painted the hearts with Vicki Boutin Prism Glaze, the went over them with Pink Martini Ink Pad
Wanted to reflect the "colors" of Miami during the late 80's early 90's.  Tag tucked behind the photograph. Not my favorite layout ever but it was really fun to try something new.

I used my gelatos to create a watercolor background and used some of the gelato slurry to stamp some butterflies onto the background as well. I also used a stencil with stencil paste and threw some gold ink splatters on as well. I discovered I love butterflies more than I knew!!

Here's mine using mixed media shapes and a tag. First I did the mixed media on a 6x8 sheet with Prism Glaze, and then stenciled with Nuvo Glacier Paste. Then, I stamped with Vicki Boutin Flower Stamp and cut them all out. 😊

I combined with the Let's Try Challenge using a Flower Stamp.

Here's my page, out of my comfort zone!

I used Altenew embossing paste over a bursting dahlia stencil, and when dry I sprayed them with TH Oxide inks, then cut them out. I added a tag sprayed with the same inks. I also stenciled a TH stencil with peacock feathers ink on my page. I added washi tape and a premade tag lower right.
