Mied Media Monday: Anything Goes with Distress Stickles




Time for Monday and a dose of Mixed Media by Ann from the All that Stickles Design Team and the blog:  Annmakes.  I have been enjoying working with these new dies and stamp sets from Tim Holtz by Ranger and of course pairing them with more Ranger products such as their distress inks and my favourite: STICKLES!!!   I am trying to warm up to the idea of winter coming by creating things that make me happy, such as Christmas themed projects.

                                      


I am going to hang this on a wall in my house this coming holiday season.  I made this canvas from an old box, vintage and recycled tissue paper, vintage ribbon and a bunch of newer supplies. :)  
The supplies I used are:  Gesso,  Light Modeling Paste (Liquitex), Modge Podge, Distress Inks; Tea Dye, Fired Brick, Broken China,  and Lemony Yellow (Ranger).  Distress Stickles by Ranger in: Scattered Straw, Fired Brick, Broken China, and Fired Brick.  I also used some Yellow Stickles.    I stamped the "Tree Blueprint" (Sizzix, Tim Holtz"Alterations" by Ranger) onto scraps of scrapbook papers and some American Craft card stock.  The dies I used instead of fussy cutting (Love that) are from the same kit as the stamps.    This set made it easy to create the 3-D effect I wanted.  

I hope that you are inspired to get crafting through Winter now!  Thank you for stopping by.
