2013 Spellbinders Design Team Call Round 2 Entry...My Happy Place...

Hi all!!!
So back in April I applied for the Spellbinders Design Team and imagine my reaction when I received an email saying that I had made it through to the second round of the team!!! Now this call is world wide and I had made it to the top 37!!!!!

So making it through to the second round, we were all asked to create a specific project, I was asked to create a mixed media project and I also had to video the process!!! 
Wow so I had never created a video before so I had to work on that as well create something that I am not used to creating on top of that!!
I am not going to share the video with you but instead I will share some photos of what I created...I decided to create a mixed media canvas and set to work with lots of different techniques to create some texture...

This is the finished canvas..

I started off by using some Mod Podge and adhering
 a scrunched up dress makers pattern...

I then applied a generous amount of Gesso to change the colour 
of the dress makers pattern and for the mists to have
 something to absorb into...

I used a mixture of mists including Maya Mist, Dylusions 
and Mister Huey's

I started with red, then yellow....

I sprayed blue next and obviously because it ran
 into the yellow I got some green.... 

I then repeated the same colours out to the edge...

Using some texture paste, I used a Pink Paislee
 mask for some textured shapes...

I then outlined these shapes with my black pen....

I also used stamps and bubble wrap with some
 white paint for some different looks...

Then I started to add lots of different elements like
 chipboard, sequins, wood fibres, patterned paper etc

I also added a Prima flower, some hessian and
 a cute Greatest View flair...

I of course used some Spellbinders dies, cutting out an
 eyelet circle and a large scalloped border but used the negative pieces...

I unfortunately didn't make it through after this round but I was extremely happy with what I created, my awesomely talented and good friend Beck Beattie was lucky enough to make it through though and she is off to the US this week all expenses paid for a week...lucky thing!!

Thanks for stopping by and for any love you leave....
happy creating..
Tarrah x
