Mixed Media Mojo~May 1st New Challenge~Tic Tac Toe

Happy May!

Today brings the start of a brand new challenge at Mixed Media Mojo! This should be a fun and challenging one, I think!

For your play we offer a Tic Tac Toe Board! You challenge is to make 3 in a row, the Twist is to do it all! I hope you visit the Mixed Media Mojo Challenge Blog to see what the DT has come up with, so many amazing projects!

Please click the photos to see each one bigger, thanks!

I made a canvas, it is 5 inches by 7 inches. I chose to go three in a row, with Glitter, Stencil and Alcohol Ink.

I used the Tim Holtz Rays and Dot Fade stencils on top of the alcohol ink background. The alcohol ink is from Sharpie markers. I scribbled on the gesso covered canvas and poured rubbing alcohol over the ink to make the streaks.

I used two stamps by Visible Image for the magnificent bird and sentiment. I am so happy and grateful to have won them from Visible Image during some Facebook giveaways :)

I used Ranger Super Fine in white to emboss the awesome bird, then applied Peacock Feathers Distress Ink for the blue. The glittery cascade I used Sticky Embossing Powder and foil.

So will you join us with three in a row or will you go for it and fill the whole board? can't wait to see what you do! Link up with us HERE. You can combine our challenge with up to 6 others, so have fun!

If you want to express your darker side, I have a new challenge blog just for you, come explore and try something new..I promise we don't bite :) Come see me at the Dream in Darkness Dark Challenge Blog. More of my darker works are at my dark twin blog, Tangled Black Rose
