New mixed Media Challenge Blog

Morning everyone and hope you are all ready for our first challenge on a brand new mixed media challenge blog--A Inky Mess-ATG/mixed media-there will be a new challenge on the 25th of every month so plenty of time to getting working on your projects.This month our sponsor is Ikes Art and I have used "Walls of Sadness" coloured with promarkers,I coloured the image grey to reflect the negative sentiment against the coloured background,and balanced this with the more positive words.I made a journal page sprayed with my new Deco Art Misters,stencilled over with a brick stencil and distress inkpad,the brick paper was downloaded from Google and the words are from Crafters Companion.

  7. This is quite stunning Carol!! Love the look of texture on your background! HUGS :)

  8. You are so adept at using these images I would never have a clue as to how to present. I love that sentiment too. The background is so nice with the image, and of course, your coloring is always spot on with lots of shading & highlights. Love the brick texture with the splats of color in the far background. A nice contrast with the paler shades of the face. TFS & Hugs

  9. a wonderful make Carol - really fabulous! Hugs rachel x
