October 22~ 31 Days of Halloween Wicked Blogger Challenge Day 22~Mixed Media Mojo DT


Happy Wednesday!

Welcome to Day 22 of 31 Days of Halloween, Smeared and Smudged's wicked 31 day challenge! To find your way on the 31 Days Hop, you can follow the list there on the right sidebar under Mr. Neon Skele. Also make sure you visit Terra's blog for the rules and daily Scavenger Hunt clue and prize list.

This is also my DT post for Media Media Mojo, I invite everyone to play along with us in this challenge. The theme is fun, Fall/Halloween and the twist, use fabric. Many, many pieces of everyone's art could be entered, come see when you have a chance!

For today I made a fabric hanging. I wanted something I could hang up in the window or on my door. This is the play I made.

I have really loved seeing Sandy's banner pieces this month, that has been part of my inspiration to play with stamping on fabric. You can find her blog HERE to see what I mean.

I chose to use some white crinoline fabric I had on hand. I love the edge it has so I made it the bottom border.

I stamped all the black images with Archival black. The orange-yellow is Distress Paint. The brown fence,(I love this stamp!), is Distress Ink.

Once the stamping was done, I filled in the sky using Distress Ink and a water brush. Sponges show too much of an edge so I used a brush on the fabric, it is not as forgiving as paper.

One hint of caution, the Distress Ink is water based, so when it gets wet it runs. I believe Archival is permanent, at least as I went over it with the blue, it did not lift like the brown did.

The witch, ghosts, and bats stamps are Unity. The sentiment is Inkadinkado. The crow is Recollections-Michaels $1 bin:)  The fence and bottom border is Hampton Arts. Inks are Ranger.

I really like how the inking brings up the texture of the fabric. This is a play I would like to do more with.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful comments and visits! It means so much and makes my day!
