Mid Month Inspiration~Tic Tac Toe Mixed Media Mojo

Happy Wednesday!

Wonderful you stopped by today. I have a mid-month reminder for your for the current challenge at Mixed Media Mojo. Our theme for May is Tic Tac Toe, the optional twist is fill the whole board!

Here is the game board just in case you need a reminder :)

For this canvas, I managed three in a row, two ways! I have Tape, Chipboard and Stamp. And across, Gesso, Stencil and Chipboard. 

Please click each image to see them a bit bigger :)

The substrate is cardboard, coated with gesso. I layered it up with some texture paste applied through stencils, Tim Holtz Harlequin and some circles. Once dry I sprayed some Dylusions then spritzed with some water to make it run.

I made the flowers with layers of deli wrap paper that I had stamped and stenciled. I used my Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die to cut them.

To keep them bouncy like flowers are in the wind, I attached them with 18g wire. I looped it through the holes in the brown drywall tape.  The tape was colored and textured with textured paste and crackle medium. I added color on top using alcohol inks.

 I had fun playing with circles. I used a Sharpie to draw a bunch of circles then cut them out. I had fun stamping all over them then painted with Distress Ink. I love bubbles and circles :)

Thanks for reading this far! I hope you have time to join us for a game of Tic Tac Toe this month! Link up your make HERE

Can't wait to see what you make!
