The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #43!!

December is here and so is The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge!!  I had a blast creating with the chipboard pieces that boozybear.blogspot has in her store !!

Visit boozybear's etsy shop and find her amazing stencils and chipboard pieces!  I loved playing with them because they were versatile and put up with a LOT of different mediums!!

Remember that if you join us in this month's challenge, you will be entered in our random drawing and win a prize from our sponsor!!

And here is my project for this month's challenge!

I coated the canvas with white gesso and a crackle paste randomly around the canvas.  Then I used a gold paint randomly around on the white background. When it was dry, added in some gold texture paste with sand and glitter randomly.  I used my boozybear burlap stencil with brown archival ink for a little extra texture in the background. Then I took the awesome Scribble Frame Chipboard and coated it in gold paint and Distress Oxide Ink - so much fun!  

I loved this creating this project!! I hung it up in my front hallway with all my Christmas decorations!!

So come and play - you are definitely going to need some art time during this crazy Holiday Season!!


  1. What a lovely project for this month's theme. I love the textured background behind the gold rings. Helene

  2. A piece of fine contemporary art that I would LOVE to hang in my home! You did a fabulous job on the background--so much delicious texture! And the idea of 5 golden rings--genius! They look beautiful finished in the gold paint and oxide inks. Very well done! Hugs!
