This month, over on the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge blog, the theme is “Believe”. Which I was excited to see because I had a project brewing in my brain that was going to be perfect for this challenge.
This project is a mixture of Mixed Media, Assemblage with a bit of floral arrangement on the side.
It is really a treat when you can bring together so many techniques and different elements into one project! I started out by creating the mixed media canvas and then incorporated it into the wooden sleigh with the Santa figurine. Then I added the assemblage pieces and floral elements until I was happy with the results.
I just adore this little Santa and am happy that I finally got to use a Tim Holtz Decorate Deer from his Idea-ology collection. I have had these sitting around for a month or so waiting for the right project. I also dug out my stash of DecoArt One Step Crackle finish and used it on the Reindeer and snowflakes featured on the canvas. I really must use the crackle more often; it gives the project a nice aged and weathered look.
So, thanks to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog for another month of great inspiration!
