Happy SUMMER Saturday! The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is celebrating by going all Arty!
That's right, the newest challenge is A is for ARTY — we are looking for your creations of mixed media glory! This can be a bit of a challenge for the usually clean-and-simple me, but here's my effort:
Let us count the media... gelli print background using emboss resist technique and acrylic paints; stamped Hipster watercoloured with Zig markers; Hipster glasses emphasized with Wink of Stella black glitter marker; patterned paper frame dry-embossed with a woodgrain impression plate; chipboard arrows gessoed and painted with black acrylic paint; sentiment stamped and clear-embossed. Not a lot by true mixed media standards — but a lot of different media for me!
I am entering this into my friend Heather's challenge at the Foiled Fox blog, Simply Irresistible (emboss resist). And since the inside reads "Have an EPIC birthday", I'll add it to the "Anything Goes" challenge at Seize the Birthday, too.
I hope my example makes you want to get all inky and painty too! Be sure to check out what my sisters in snark have made... that's where you'll see true mixed media art! We also have a terrific inspiration from our newest Queen of Snark, Toni. Hope you'll join us in our ARTY challenge!
