Mixed Media

Hi Everyone!

Have you ever made something unintentionally?
That's what happed with this little canvas.
I had this canvas all done up once but everything was falling off. So, I ripped everything off and put it aside. I have been cleaning up my scraping area when I came across a few sheets of paper that I used to show my sister the ink and alcohol technique. One of them fit the canvas so I glued it on. I didn't know what to do with it. 
So back to cleaning.I found a bin of old Making Memories paint. I was just about to throw it out. When I realized that it was about the thickness of modeling paste. Would it work like modeling paste? I grabbed a stencil and gave it a try. It WORKED!
I remembered the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge and figured I could enter it. But the challenge was to use STAMPS. Good thing the Heidi Swapp stencil I used had 3 parts.I used the butterfly cutout as a mask and stamped the background with a Unity/Christy Tomlinson stamp. I did a little more distressing, added the stamped word and I now have a finished canvas.

Wishing everyone a
