Creative Artiste - CH#9 - Anything Goes

Good morning my may remember last month, I was asked to be a GDT for Creative Artiste Challenge Blog!  I am over the moon to say that Rhonda, offered me a full time Design Team place...which I readily agreed to.  Also joining the team, were a few other lovely ladies, Judy McKay, Janet Hines and Sheryl Hare,  to meet them, please pop over to the Challenge Blog HERE.

So this is my 1st project as a DT member, for CH#9 - Mixed Media - Anything Goes.

I decided to get messy, and produced this Wall Hanging.

Products used were:-
Chippie Wall Hanging - Lelli-Bot Crafts
Image - Little Claire's - Irresistible Image Pack -
(inked round the edge with Memento Paris Dusk Ink Pad)
Gesso - 1 Coat, front and back.
Imagination Crafts - Limestone Paint (2 coats)
Imagination Crafts - Silkies - Sunshine Satin and Gold Brocade 
(these were stippled, lightly, with a soft paint brush  over the painted background,
Imagination Crafts - Stencil - Flourishes
Imagination Crafts - Sparkle Medium - Amethyst
(used over the stencil)
Also made Butterfly embellishments - with Sparkle Medium - Amethyst
Over time using Imagination Crafts Sparkle Medium, I have a pot of leftovers
I used this to make the Branch and Leaves embellishments
The moulds for these embellishments were bought from
I finished the Wall Hanging with going around all the edges with Memento Paris Dusk Ink Pad, added Ribbon, and Butterfly from my Stash.

I hope you like my project.
