An Mixed Media Canvas for Fall...

HAPPY October 1st everyone!  I am here today wearing my STAMPlorations mixed media design team member hat for the first "Anything Goes Mixed Media Challenge" after our summer break!  WELCOME.
Now I know it's cliche´ but there is something about fall that makes me feel thankful and grateful.  It might be because the first Monday in October is the Thanksgiving holiday here in Canada, or it might be because there is something about the mountain air on these cooler fall mornings that goes straight to my head and makes me a wee bit giddy.  So for this first Anything Goes Except a Card Mixed Media  Challenge over at STAMPlorations this term I was inspired to make these two lovely canvases to express all the feelings I have in the Fall... Enjoy!


I used my favorite Inky Paper towel technique and Golden fluid acrylic paint with stencils and masks to create these canvases. Go HERE to see an in-depth tutorial on my process.

I hope I have inspired you to go create something with your stencils, and to consider linking up to the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Challenge this month where it is always Anything Goes except a card as long as you use a stencil, any stencil.  You have until the end of October and there are prizes!

STAMPloration Prizes:
- $10 gift certificate to the winner voted by the Mixed Media team
- $5 gift certificate each to the 2 top picks
- If there are 25 or more entries: 1 random winner of any 2 standard size stencils
As always, thank you for stopping in today to see what I am to and please do leave me a comment if you like what you see!!
