Creative Artiste Design Team ~ Anything Mixed Media Goes

Hello creative Friends, 

I'm so happy to reveal today that I have 
joined the Creative Artiste Design Team. 

A monthly challenge where 
and a place to share a mixed media 
creation along side the Creative Artiste Team. 

Thank you Andree and the team for inviting me..


Here's a walk through my September project and how it came to be.. 

Autumn my favourite of Seasons the warmth of it's colours are so cosy. 
Taking a postcard sized piece of mixed media card I painted a scene 
stamping wildflower stems in the forefront adding to it's atmosphere.


Sanding down a deep edge frame leaves are stamped onto the exposed wood 
and painted with the same colour palette. To add interest to the front of 
the frame texture paste is pushed through a stencil and left to harden.


Painting the textured edge in complimentary bronze, dots of glitter 
glue add the final touch of detail to the glass window protecting it. 

Glistens like morning dew from every angle,


my mixed media frame is complete and now ready to display.


Pop on over HERE and see what the Creative Artiste DT 
have created this month, we'd love to see your 
Mixed Media creations over @ Creative Artiste's 

Wishing you all a 
happy, safe and creative day 

Tracey xx
