Tuesday Morning Sketches #484

Hello! Thank you for stopping by!  It's time for the Annual Anything Goes challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Be sure to visit the blog to get the low down on the challenge and see what everyone made to share with you.  Cards, wall art and a hand painted card!

My project features my very small, very minimal attempt at mixed media.  I cannot let myself and really try this out.  But my daughter will love it - it's her favorite picture of her and her boyfriend.

The canvas is 8 x 10 and I gesso'd it first.  Using the Mandala Maker stamp set by Gina K, I stamped out the mandalas on vellum with die inks from Simon Says Stamp and MFT.  Because it's on vellum the ink stays wet so I able to emboss each layer, no not right, round of the mandala.  I then cut them out and glued them to the canvas.  Using my Silhouette I cut the frame out of a few pieces of card stock and then the silver foil paper and glued all them together.  I also cut out the letters and covered them with embossing ink and then added Mermaid Blue embossing powder.

I truly wanted to add so much more - I want to do mixed media with reckless abandon but I just can't take myself over that edge.  I wanted to stencil some embossing paste onto the canvas.  I wanted to add embellishments but in the end I made a hard scrapbook page that still needs so much more.

You have until December 30th to play along and Tuesday Morning Sketches will resume challenges on January 8th.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas or whatever holiday is special to you and your family.  And in all of our cultural differences, we have one in common - Happy New Year!  I hope 2019 will be a blessing to you.
