More Mixed Media

     Friday has become my mixed media day as I like to play in the Mixability Challenges on  Today our challenge was to use fabric.  I also like to play along in the Queen for the Day Challenge and we are currently reviewing past queens. I chose to CASE a beautiful mixed media card by Lee-Anne/Shadow's Mom.
It looked like Lee-Anne used a print dp, but I went with a dictionary page. I used white Gesso as my base coat then used my foam brush to dab some Grey Gesso through wire mesh. I didn't do so well on my first try so I wiped off the grey mess and tried again. As I wiped with an old wipe that had blue ink on it, the blue bled into the Gesso-how cool is that!  I added a bit more Island Indigo along the edges and also stamped my image and sentiment in the same.  My fabric piece is a denim strip and a rolled denim flower. I simply snipped my strip about every 1/4" and then rolled it up and smooshed it onto a circle of sticky sheet.
