Tic Tac Toe


The theme for this months Mixed Media Mojo Challenge is Tic Tac Toe and the twist is to use all the squares.



For my DT piece I decided to use all the squares but it wasn't until I'd finished that I realised I hadn't used any tape.


I started by stencilling some raindrops with modelling paste onto a piece of mount board. I then painted it with gesso and when this had dried I painted it with green and blue acrylic paint. I sprinkled lime green and ultra marine Brushos and sprayed a little water. I stamped some leaves [Sheena Douglas] and coloured them with Inktense pencils and a water brush, then I painted some Glossy Accents onto the raindrops.


A few years ago I had a go at doing the Caught In Crystal technique with acetate and alcohol inks, I still have some pieces left so decided to use it for some flowers. You can just about see the glitter that I had added.


Here is a close up of the die cut flowers.


I wrote the quote and used chipboard letters for the word May. I made a couple of holes and used ribbon for the hanger. I'd stamped some extra leaves, coloured them in and cut them out, I added them to the flowers.


Why not visit the Mixed Media Mojo blog to see the wonderful creations that the rest of the talented DT have made.

I'd like to link my project to the following challenges.
