Two Ways With Mixed Media Place and paperDVIZHNIK

Oh my goodness........THREE different projects posted in less than a week ! This is a record for me, I take things pretty slow and steady here but it's always good to be productive.
First up is the new Creative Gym Challenge at Mixed Media Place blog......."The Power Of One".
Use 1 stamp, 1 stencil and 1 colour + black and white.
 You can play with any amount of media, paints, pencils, pastels, inks, ( in one colour ) pastes and gels, papers, fibres, beads and embellishments. All the details are HERE at Mixed Media Place.
Teal blue was my colour choice and I have created a tag using bold patterned paper and some beautiful detailed chipboard.

It started out like and white patterned paper and scrunched up tissue.

I used a beautiful Finnabair stamp from her Trust The Magic set, it's so intricately patterned, and embossed it. Added a few strips of teal coloured patterned paper, some washi tape and some 3D Matte Gel through a stencil and coloured it with Distress Stain.

paperDVIZHNIK have a new challenge up as well..........
The property of a colour can be used to create the illusion of depth, ie. rich warm tones in the foreground and cool tones in the distance.

Paint, stamps, texture paste. The stamps used on this project were designed by the very clever Georgia Heald, her blog is here. All the details on how to play along with this challenge can be found HERE at paperDVIZHNIK.

I hope one or both these projects takes your fancy and you will come and play along.
Being 'challenged' creatively should never be should be an adventure and definitely fun !
As always thanks for visiting.
