A new month, a new challenge...Christmas challenge, 'Believe'. It's our Christmas challenge at Mixed Media Monthly Challenge and time to get your mixed media all Christmassy!
Our sponsor this month is the lovely Glenda from Boozy Bear. She makes a wonderful selection of chipboard shapes and textures.
I didn't use all of what Glenda sent to me but I had a good go!
I started off by painting and brayering onto an MDF panel using a selection of Paperartsy fresco chalk paints. With a stencil and a snowflake stamp I gradually built up my layers until I was happy.
With corresponding colours I painted the snowflakes and the chipboard punched circles. I found the MDF heart my stash of bits and bobs, layered it up with paint using stencils and then gave it a fine coat of the chalk paint, just enough so the stencilling could show through. I stamped on the sentiment and heat embossed with EP.
I attached all the separate painted elements using Finnabair 3D Matte Gel (Translucent). What will you make for this months challenge? Head over to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge, check out the rules and submit your entries.
Happy Christmas crafting!
