Who will be the master crafter?


Well I did it, I decided to join the challenge being hosted by http://www.pinkcricut.com/2012/10/master-crafter/ She had a bunch of fabulous items donated by companies for this challenge. Now when I first got my package, I was stumped. I had no idea in which direction I wanted to go. This is what I came up with and wasn't happy about.

Now this bag works great for holding the scissor mouse which was one of the fun items included in the package. It is a great way to cut paper and super safe so the kids can use it too. I used mod podge to attach the piece of paper from the Rockstar mat pack also supplied from DCWV. I cut it out using the scissor mouse and stamped the love sentiment that was included by Pink Cricut herself.

So after looking at it for a few days, I just wasn't happy with it. Didin't do my first challenge justice. I finally came up with my entry while I was looking through my art journal. We had taken a paper piercing class a short while ago and I loved it. So, my project is a mixed media piece that I have done in one of my art journals. 



I used all of the supplied items in this piece except for the cotton bag (now my scissor mouse holder :o) 
I used the scissor mouse to cut the legs in my paper pieced woman. The top and hair were to difficult for me to do with the scissor mouse but with some practice I will be able to do it soon enough.
There are many different mediums used in this layout, gesso, mod podge, paint, big brush markers, paint pen, gelattos, ink, buttons and of course paper!
Her are close ups of the two pages....
If you give it your all, people will listen.


Thank you so much for stopping by, I truly hope you have enjoyed my entry. There was a lot of love that went into making this piece. Take a look around when you have some time and leave me your thoughts on my projects.
Sincerly,
Jos
Let your dreams take flight. Hold on tight and see how far you go.
