Wishes...A MMCC1 week 2 39

Hi there! I'm back today for week 2 of A Mixed Media Color Challenge sharing a page in my art journal. In case you missed my post HERE, there's a new color challenge blog on the block for mixed media enthusiasts to share their creativity! Come check it out ~ HERE

You have until next week Tuesday, at 6:00 PM Eastern to create something / anything using the color combination shown below and at least TWO types of MEDIUMS: ie: paints, markers, pastes, mists, inks, etc..., in addition to the "traditional" stamped / colored image to create your project.
I pulled out my 8 1/2" x 11" art journal and created a page using various products. 
After staring at the big white empty space, I began by painting pink acrylic paint all over, once dry, I collaged on tissue paper then added a light coat of gesso. Not sure where to go from there, I pulled out never before inked stamp from my stash and used that as my focal point. Once I had the sentiment in place, the rest came together.
I created my own painted paper using a combination of randomly dripped pink, black, silver and white paint on the gelli arts plate. I then cut three different sized die cut hearts using Die-namics Layered Heart, Die-namics Heart STAX and Die-namics Blueprints 4 dies. 
I added texture using mesh tape then fiber paste was smeared across. The random white polka dots seen all over were made using white acrylic paint with the MPD Graduated Dots stencil
I randomly stamped the chicken wire image as well as the polka dot image from MPD Distressed Background Blocks. (the polka dot image was heat embossed using silver embossing powder). I finished it off with splatters of black paint.
The pink design was made using a permanent pink ink along with the MPD Delicate Doily stencilI finished it off with splatters of black acrylic paint.
I am also entering this into the current Scrap Africa Challenge where they are challenging us to use Stencils, Paste and Paint. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit ~ I hope I have inspired you to mix things up! Please hop on over to A Mixed Media Color Challenge for COMPLETE details on how to join in the fun and for some jaw dropping inspiration from Sue!
Be Sweet ;)
