Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #19 - Silver and Gold!

Welcome back for this month's Mixed Media Monthly Challenge!  This month the challenge is an awesome Silver and Gold!!  Plus, the fact that we all had the chance to use Indigo Blu Flitter Glu and their Mega Flakes!! SO much fun and such amazing results!!  You want to win an Indigo Blu Flitter Glu set!!

Here is my project for this month!  I used the flakes in the background, with a stencil.  I also used the flakes to gild the bells and the ribbon!! 

I started off with some easy bell shapes - I thought they would just be perfect for Silver and Gold! (And yes, the whole time I was making this project I was singing Silver and Gold from the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer movie!!)

I painted the background with Indigo Blu Acrylic Paint, Townhouse Teal and Frosty Sky! I also mixed in a little Interference for sparkle, but the flakes really stole the show

I used an ornament stencil.  I used the flitter glu phat foam to apply through the stencil.  Then I used the silver from the Manchester Tart mix to make the stencil shine!

I added the flitter glu and and flakes to the bells - SO shiny!!

Then I made the ribbon paper, doodled and added the wording!! I had a blast making this! And it looks fantastic on my wall!!

Make sure to play with us this month!!  Take a break from the crazy, stressful holiday season and create with us!! Click here to come to the challenge!
