Playing Bingo with my supplies

Over at the S.W.A.T. blog the current challenge is Bingo. I chose the horizontal line #4, which is Blue, Modeling Paste, Stitching, Doily, and Tag.

I started off with light blue and teal acrylic paint. I used an old credit card to swipe the 2 colors across the page. I then sketched out my design.

Next I used a red and brown gelato to draw in my design. I also colored up some doilies with the gelatos. I added in some modeling paste through a stencil. I then pulled out a journaling tag to add my saying to.

 My original idea was to add in pictures and journaling from the past week in the red areas. However, since I colored them with a gelato it is very hard to draw over the waxy surface. So I pulled out another journaling tag to add my writing to.

I also added in some background stamping and used the same stencil to wipe away some of the red from the heart. I used a black pen to add in some faux stitches around the tags and heart.

This was a fun challenge and I hope you are inspired to play along. As always thank you for stopping by. See you next time.
