Summer Fun~ Mixed Media Mojo New Challenge~ Theme Summer Twist Monochrome

Happy Monday and Happy June 1st!

This sunny hot Monday morning (in my teeny part of the world) bring the start of a new challenge at Mixed Media Mojo. Our theme this month is Summer with the optional twist, Monochromatic! You have all month to link up your creation and have a fun play!

Here is my small canvas, please click each photo to make it a bit larger :)

This is happy Summer moments. Moments that pass by quickly but stay with you for a lifetime. Be it playing on the beach, flying a kite or blowing bubbles :)

This canvas is 5 inches by 7 inches. I had a play with the supplies I was provided with by the DecoArts Blogger Outreach program. I love the paints, Misters, stencils and lots of mixed media wonderfulness! I always use these willingly, they are a joy to create with!

 I used some Andy Skinner stencils, Children and Serendipity, with modeling paste. The background colors I used the Misters in orange and white. I love these since they dry permanent.

While the Misters were wet I sprayed with some more water. Then added some of the white Mister. While it puddled and moved, I used a chopstick to swirl it. I love the way it dried! I adore the canvas texture. I added School Bus Yellow to the modeling paste for the kite.

The bottom, "Beach" I masked the top half and sprayed the letters with the Mister orange and Some Dylusions Yellow. The Dylusions is water reactive even when dry, so it tends to soak into anything as I learned. I used the texture sand paste for the breaking waves.

Happy June! Thanks for coming by and hope to see you soon at Mixed Media Mojo~
