New Mixed Media Mojo Challenge~Use Red, Twist Add Wings~February 2015

Happy Super Sunday!

Hope you are planning a bit of crafty fun today, maybe while watching the football game?
Whether or not you watch the sport, I am really glad you stopped by to see the newest challenge we have starting up at Mixed Media Mojo!

The February 2015 Challenge is to use Red and a special Twist, add wings! Not too hard this month but loads and loads of possibilities!

At Mixed Media Mojo, we have a new linky to add your art that started today. 

I really am excited to share my project with you!

Please click the image to make it larger!

I made a canvas that is about 5 inches by 7 inches. I coated it with gesso, a batch I made here at home. I pressed into the gesso some dry wall mesh while wet. I sprayed some Distress Stain and Dylusions Spray Ink onto it. I set it aside to dry.  I added a couple more layers and used some Distress Paint to deepen the colors. 

I used Distress Ink around the hearts and wings. I embossed some of the die cuts, I love dots!

The keys, lock, mini heart and flowers are all made from paperclay. I sprayed some of them with Dylusions. Once dry I used some Rub N Buff to accent the edges. 

Happy Hearts Month!

I hope you have a chance to play with us at Mixed Media Mojo. Have fun with the theme this month, Red and add Wings. All we ask is is you limit your submissions to three each month and  provide a link to Mixed Media Mojo in your blog post with your submission!

Go crazy and make some art! Hope to see you soon :)
