Mixed Media Place.......Creative Gym #1

Mixed Media Place, suppliers of all things arty, fun and creative have a new set of challenges for you.  The first one is simple, but with endless possibilities.
Black+ white+ grey+ one colour.
Here is my take on black + white + grey and "pink".
I had so much fun creating my last large tag, I really just kept on going. Using all the Finnabair art basics Gessos and Gels make it so easy.

The WHITE comes from art basics HEAVY GESSO, in which the chipboard tag was painted, also white embossing enamel and the Prima 'Beautiful' sticker.
The BLACK comes from using a 'spot' stencil with black embossing enamel.

The GREY comes from all the metal embellishments , coated first in art basics CLEAR gesso and then sprayed with Prima Color Bloom Mist in Vintage Coal.
The PINK comes from the tag being misted with Picked Raspberry Distress Stain, a pink tag, some pink leaves and flowers, and some pink gems.
For all the details of how to play along with us at this months challenge and added inspiration, visit Mixed Media Place HERE. You can also purchase all the mixed media materials I've used on this project from the Mixed Media Place Store.
Thanks for visiting, I hope what's left of your week has lots of "colour" in it.
