Unfinished Business...

Lydia's Mix-Ability challenge this week is to make a mixed media project on a white surface (canvas, cardstock) where you only finish part of a stamped or sketched image - sort of like mixed media spotlighting. You must use three or more mediums on your project... I think I used 6 altogether!

I started by stenciling a piece of white Neenah cardstock with white spray paint., then dripping gelatos, watercolors, and distress ink down the panel. I love this resist technique - just very subtle and unpredictable.

The Fuchsia stamps are from Crafter's Companion, my favorite Paint Fusion line by Sheena Douglass. I filled in the flowers with acrylic paints, but left the leaves uncolored, since they fell into a mostly green area of my background.

I used Prismacolor pencils to highlight one edge of each leaf, and shade underneath, so the leaves would stand out just a little.

The sentiment I used is from a set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Hope you'll check out the new challenge details and join us!
Thanks for stopping by!
