Saturday Inspiration Post - Morgan's Art World

Happy Happy Saturday My Dear Sweet Friends

Boy oh boy does time pass way to quickly.  It seems just like the other day I posted my Storytalk Eagle DT project and yet its actually time for another Saturday Inspiration Post.  I decided to use this gorgeous image from Morgan's Art World called Cameo 14.  I have been wanting to color her for quite some time now.  I had already decided I was going to alter an Altoid Tin and I realized she was the perfect fit.



I colored her with my Copics and Fussy Cut her and added her to the top of the Altoid Tin.  I had already added a base cardstock to the top of the tin.  I also added a couple coats of Mod Podge on top to help protect the image as well as the durability of the altoid tin.  I added some silver bling ribbon around the edges of the lid and bottom as well.

The Copic colors I used are:

BV13, BV17, BV20, BV25, BV29, BV31
E000, E00, E09, E11, E21, E23, E25
R20, R81,  R83, R85
Y35
YG23
YR14, YR16, YR21



Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you will join in this months challenge with Morgan's Art World  The theme for the rest of the month is "For the Kids".

I also entered this project into the following challenge:

Autumn Colors at Mixed Media World Challenge

Happy Happy Sunday My Dear Sweet Friends
I hope your weekend has been going fabulous!
 
Today, not only am I sharing my DT project but it is also my turn to pick the theme for this months challenge. I have decided the theme will be "Anything Goes With a Twist."

The twist is you can create any type of mixed media project you want however you MUST use Fall Colors.  Our amazing sponsor this month is  Glitzcraft and they have so many wonderful stencils and other items.  And please check out all the rest of the DT projects - they are AMAZING!!


(This is an altered 9" x 12" Canvas)

I have been dabbling in the mixed media area for a little while now and one thing is for certain - I am hooked.  I have so much to learn and I am learning so much from all my teams here on MMW.

Now, I will confess this project was a HUGE step out of my comfort zone.  I stepped so far I was constantly saying "What if I mess it up?"  And ironically it all fell into place one step at a time.  I have learned what a forgiving medium this is and all I need to do is to keep playing and having fun.



 
I hope you will join in this month's challenge at Mixed Media World
