Always Keep Your Scraps!

It’s Mix-Ability Challenge day on Splitcoast! This week’s challenge (MIX94) is a fun one… it’s to make a project using any of the previous challenges.  I decided to go way back and do the first challenge MIX01 which was Yen Yang… use something shiny and something matte in your project. For my shiny I used Stickles as a glaze over the cardstock and for my matte I used Gesso.

This was a scrap I had from another project. The scrap was made with ink spray with a little Gesso dabbed on it. Joy 1 Jeanne_Streiff

Die cut the word Joy. Die cut another set of letters from red cardstock.Joy 2 Jeanne_Streiff

I added a piece of red cardstock behind the die cut word and then added the red letters on top so my surface was even. Joy 3 Jeanne_StreiffPrep green cardstock by swiping green ink and Gesso on. Add a thin layer of Stickles by squirting a bit on and smearing it across the paper. Let dry.Joy 4 Jeanne_Streiff
