Almost Everything


Edna says it is time to mix things up.  The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers presents you with Challenge # 53 M is for Mixed Media.


It took me forever to get my challenge piece done.  I kept starting things and tossing them away, unhappy with my results.  Then I decided to try altering a playing card.  I didn't have a plan, I was going to keep adding bits until it was ready for the trash or until I liked what I had made. 

I have used gesso, Tim Holtz tissue paper, acrylic paint, modeling paste. stamping ink, gelato, crackle medium, and micro-beads.  I was afraid to apply anything else because I thought everything might crack off my card.

The vintage image and saying came from Lisa's Altered Art on Etsy.  

Wanna play along and join the Sisterhood?? Of course you do... here are the deets you need to know:

You have until 11:55 pm EST on Friday March 4 to upload your project.

Awesome!!! I would have not thought about a playing card. it would be a bit more sturdy to hold everything you used. I wouldn't know where to begin using all that stuff.,

I never thought to try altering a playing card! (face palm) So much smaller an area to screw up! LOL! This turned out fabulous!

Such a cool idea to start with a playing card! Must try that. Such a perfect finished piece. Love the colours, image and of course the oh-so-true sentiment.
