Girly grunge!

Hello again - back with another catch up DT posting and this time it's for Eclectic Ellapu and the challenge, hosted this week by the wonderful Sheena is 'Girly' - plenty of scope there to come up with something fabulous!   As the post title states, I went for 'Girly Grunge' and decided to do a canvas board using mixed media and a Kenny K digi called Star.

                 My base was an 8" x 10" board canvas which I primed with gesso and then added crumpled tissue paper whilst that was still wet.  I added some designer cardstock from my stash and some torn dictionary pages and music sheets and inked and painted with various Distress Inks and acrylic paints until I was happy with the background.  Then I stamped the word music with some foam letters and added a few rub-ons, finishing with a painted chipboard heart and the fussy cut Kenny K image which had been coloured with Copics.


Entering the following challenges - 


Thanks for stopping by!
