Week in Review Mixed Media fun

Over at the Craft Hoarders Anonymous blog the challenge is Spray it, Ink it, Paint It. Smear it, Emboss it! This is my kind of challenge.

I started by pulling out my Distress Paints. For some reason I tend to forget about these, but they make really lovely backgrounds. I smeared the paints onto a wet background and then sprayed in some Dylusions Ink Spray over them letting everything run and drip together. Once this was dry I sprayed through some stencils using the same Dylusions spray. I added in some stamping with white acrylic paint and then splattered some black ink around.

When my background was still wet I used some deli paper to mop up the leftover paint. I then used this deli paper to cut out circles and a square to mount my picture to. I added in some tissue tape and some more black ink to highlight where my picture was going.

I then added in my pictures and journaling.

Lastly I stamped my saying with a Tim Holtz stamp and then inked it up an bit and added it over my picture.

Thank you for stopping by and be sure to check out the challenge.
