Creative Artiste's *May Mixed Media* Challenge #71

Hello Creative Friends, 

First Friday of the month so time to welcome 
our theme is always *Anything Mixed Media Goes* 

Today i'm bringing past things into the present... 

This ATC is the last of a bunch made for gifts in 2020. 
Created by stamping the Lily onto MDF the image was traced 
using liner pen, painted with distress paint then covered with 
UTEE and heat embossed several times to create a tile effect.


Making use of a broken picture frame onto it's backboard texture paste 
is pushed through a stencil then painted in colours similar to the ATC. 

Distress ink is painted through the same stencil onto the inner mount 
with it's aperture painted and edged with tarnished brass. 

The outer frame is painted in petrol blue with corner fastenings 
attached to help strengthen the frame with it's missing glass.


Reassembled the ATC becomes the main focal with offcuts of lace 
glued into every corner to compliment the finished redesign. 

I love the vibrant colours of this mixed media frame.. 
Such a cheerful creation.


If you like to mix up your media, do share your creations 
with the Creative Design Team and join in with our 


Stay Safe and Creative

Always Bee KInd

 Hello everyone, 

A quick journal page share today using just one 
woodware stamp, honeycomb bigz die and offcuts. 

The Bee I'm both inspired and fascinated by, 
working tirelessly to pollinate and keep the circle 
of life turning, where would we be without them..

They bring colour to our world..


Wishing you all a creative weekend 

Hugs Tracey xx
