Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #30!

Happy November!!  I am so excited for cooler weather  ... I know it will come soon to the south ... right!!  But until we can turn off the air conditioning it is the perfect time for a Mixed Media Challenge!! So welcome Mixed Media Fans - come and join us in our Monthly Challenge!!  This month we have a color inspiration and an amazing prize for one lucky randomly drawn winner from the Funkie Junkie Boutique!! The Funkie Junkie has an amazing selection of papers, pens, paints ... everything you could need or want for your mixed media and scrapbooking!!  

And now my project for the challenge ....

This all started with a simple sketch.  I used a wood base for the canvas, lots of paint, paper, burlap and twine!!

I painted the wood with white, titan buff golden paints and a crackle medium for Viva. 

And then the dog jumped into my lap and then proceeded to climb out of my lap on the desk ... he really didn't want me to work!! 

So, come play!! We have such a good time and learn so much from other mixed media artists ... The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge!!
