Craft Hoarders Anonymous & Stencil Girl Blog Hop

This week the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog is changing it up...with a blog hop!  Challenge 10 is ready at CHACB but we are doing things a bit differently this time!  We are doing a week-long blog hop with Stencil Girl!!



Each day this week you will visit the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog to see the fabulous designs of the CHACB team, and then you will visit the Stencil Girl Blog to see what their team is doing!  For the blog hop order, see the end of the post.

NOW FOR THE CHALLENGE!  CHALLENGE #10 - SPRAY IT!  PAINT I! SMEAR IT! EMBOSS IT!

Show us your inner mixed media diva!  Use spray mists, inks, paints, modeling paste, embossing powder, pastels, chalk and whatever messy media you can find!  Let's dig into that hoard, pull out some of that "messy stuff" and use it up!  There's a messy-maker hiding in all of you!  Let her/him out to play!

Here's my project for this challenge.  I did a couple of small canvas pieces with some vintage ladies.

I first gessoed the canvas pieces and then used some light moulding paste with the beautiful Peacock Stencil from Stencil Girl..so much fun.  After that dried I started misting with some Lindy's Stamp Gang "Tainted Love Teal" and "Red Hot Poker Orange" and love the effect with the stencil.  I than gathered up some of my metal hoard and altered the pieces with some Ranger Patinas "Vertigris" and "Aged Bronze".  I also misted some white flowers with the Tainted Love Teal and Red Hot Poker Orange.  I added some hot air balloons for a bit of contrast.  I also used "white" WorldWin Paper behind the images to matt the photo paper and used my heating tool to "crack" the photo paper.





Rememeber you have 2 weeks to play in the new challenge!  CHALLENGE #10 CLOSES JUNE 29th AT MIDNIGHT PT.  Link your project using the link tool on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog.

  10. Oh, but there is sooooo much to love here...the wonderful color palette for starters. It looks like this just got dug out from a Parisian ruin....all coated in verdigris and beautifully aged. The images are romantic and classical and I just love them. Then there's the texture..which is amazing. It's like a glimpse through the keyhole of a wonderful secret world. In other words: fabulous!
