That Craft Place - Mixed Media Challenge...

Hello lovelies!

We have another fantastic challenge for you all over at the 

The theme for this month is

'Mixed Media' - Anything Goes...

This means we would like to see anything that you have used Mixed Media techniques on. This is a perfect chance to get all inky, painty and very messy if you wish. Or you can alter and decorate something using gorgeous papers.

I have decorated a printer's tray for my Mixed Media project. I've used gorgeous papers by Graphic 45, and used a combination of Crackled Paints and Gilding Waxes.

The lovely list of ingredient's I've used are...

Large Printer Tray ~ Grapic 45 8x8 Couture Paper Pad ~ Gesso ~ Cosmic Shimmer Crackle Paints in shades Saffron & Vanilla ~ MDF Ticket, Tag Beautiful, Hearts & Dress form ~  Resin Flowers ~ Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue ~ Collal 3D Glue ~ Red Beady Spirals ~ Tim Holtz Distress Inks Tea Dye & Vintage Photo

From my crafty stash I already had...

Red Paper Roses ~ Red Stamens ~ Jute ~ Sequin Length ~ Lace ~ Satin Crinkly Seam Binding ~ Mini Cotton Reel ~ Tape Measure Ribbon ~ Mini Jar ~ Seed Beads ~ Various Ornate Buttons & Beads ~ Diamante Ribbon Slider ~ Red Organza Ribbon ~ Self-adhesive Crystals ~ Gilding Wax in shades Deep Red & Cast Bronze

I absolutely loved creating this Mixed Media project. The printer tray is so easy to decorate. I used the gorgeous papers to decorate the sections, crackle paint for the panels of the frames, and the ornate corners. I then finished the look with Distress Inks and Gilding Wax. Finally adding lot's of pretty embellishments.

I am entering my Mixed Media Printers Tray into the following challenges...
