Sister In Law Saw
I found another awesome mixed media blog that hosts challenges, Mixed Media Mojo. The challenge is to use stamps and 2 different mediums. So many choices!
Yes, this is a saw. My sister in law asked me to create something, anything using this saw. I accepted the challenge (can you tell I like a challenge?) and went at it.
First I used Mod Podge to adhere the scrapbook paper to the saw and then layered more paper and some photos of my in-laws. I recycled the photos from their Christmas cards they sent my husband and I (we art people never know what we will use until we have that Aha moment). I wanted to honor her and her family because they are just good, sweet peoples. No horror stories here about in-laws, all of mine are wonderful. Lucky for me!
Anyway, I added some embellishments, some Radiant Rain misted flowers, and some brown distress ink (Tim Holtz) and used 2 different stamps I picked up from Jo-Anne's dollar bin. Score!
My saw didn't look finished at this point so I decided it needed some gesso around the entire edge. I think it pops now!
All I have left to do is show it to my sis in law. Hope she loves it! I had a blast creating this for her! Loves!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and remember: pretty much anything can be used in mixed media. That is why is it so much fun!
