Just “messing” around!


So I wanted to work on something for the Mixed Media Monthly challenge (this month is Stencils and Modelling Paste). Some of my favourite supplies to use, but the jury is still out on this one. I can’t tell if I have made art or just made a mess! haha that’s just the way it is sometimes I guess!

Working through some stressors at my job and not feeling the most effective right now and that’s what this page is all about. I have been fascinated with images and quotes from Alice In Wonderland lately, not sure what that is all about but I picked up the Spring Sprung Stampers Anonymous set the other day and the white rabbit stamp spoke to me!

Also, I was going to print out and fussy cut a clock face and found some random paper in my stash to use. When I printed it, I noticed that the ink was beading on the surface so I flipped it over and use it as a transfer instead (right hand page, pretty much the centre). Kind of a neat accident, huh? Still don’t know what kind of paper it is, I found it in all my “junk” when I was helping my Mom move out of her house. I should really put it in a storage bag with a note about the transfer thing….

Some closeups of the stenciling. Hmmph, still not sure..what do you think? Suggestions?

Other supplies include: Dylusions spray in fresh lime and vibrant turquoise, Mister Huey in amarillo taxi, Distress Paint in mustard seed and salty ocean, Liquitex modeling paste and gloss gel, Tim Holtz stencils Measured, Burlap, Splatters and Clockwork, some india ink by Daler-Rowney, Stampers Big Brush in black and white,  LSG Moon Shadow Mist in tawny turquoise and a cool little alphabet stamp set I got at Target.


The world is full of kind people; if you can’t find one, be one!
