Second post for today!!!! Amazing!!!
As you know, every month the Flying Unicorn CTs hold challenges over on the forum. Always fun to see what our members and CTs do with the challenges. Well, this month is special......I love decorating for the Holidays....starting with Fall/Autumn themes, and progressing through Christmas, and Winter. Weird, I don't decorate at other times of the year!
Anyways, this month Tammy is hosting a a 'Time To Shine' Challenge. And it's all about revamping your layouts, cards and tags. Well, I took liberties, and included a Mixed Media piece! Hehehehe
So this is one of the Mixed Media pieces I created with the February KOM from Flying Unicorn....
There's a few things, I liked about this canvas, made with the February Kits, but a few things I didn't like too!! I was going to throw it away, after I pulled off all of the embellies. Then I saw Tammy's challenge, and decided to try and do something with it. After all it had great texture!!! And since I'm all about the Autumn decorating right now.......pumpkins, are the bomb!!!
So here is my completely redone canvas.....
So much better!!!! I added some Golden Clear Tar Gel, from the October Mixed Art Kit, in curves, to replicate the ribs of a pumkin. Then gessoed over top. Next I misted and sprayed on my color, from Shimmerz to Lindy's and everything in between. There is a ton of misting on this piece!! Next I added some shading and highlighting with Faber Castell Pitt Big Brush Pens and StazOn Ink, and then went over a few areas with Pan Pastels.
Love all of that texture!!!! I made leaves from vintage book pages, added a wrapped twine stem, which I also sprayed, some wire curlicues, and a few Flying Unicorn Metal Adornments.
So love this redo!!! Thank you Tammy for this challenge!! Now it's your turn......come join us in this awesome challenge!!
