A Little Mixed Media

Hi Everyone!

I have been looking around the web this week at blogs, Pinterest, YouTube....
A few places made me want to get out my Gelatos. I wanted to use the new PaperCrafter's Corner as my main inspiration.

Here is what I created:

This little canvas was bought from the dollar bin at Michael's. It originally had fruit or something on it. I've painted it with gesso, white paint, black paint, grey paint, and back to gesso, and back to white. I just couldn't figure out what I wanted to do. Until now.

I took from the inspiration the colors, the red title and the round globe. I began by adding the Gelatos around the edges then worked my way in to the center. I stamped and gold embossed the 'capture confident dreams' Unity stamp. I kept adding Gelatos and wiping it off to finally get it to where the image could be seen. The chipboard letters were painted white then I used red and black Gelatos to color them.

Because of the products I used this also fits with two more challenges..Bonus!

And, I'll be linking up tomorrow for Unity's Friends with Flair.
