Mixed Media Mojo February challenge

Hello my dear crafty friends! I was asked to join Mixed Media Mojo challenge blog design team and as I have time and energy I said " yes".
First I want to introduce you to Mixed Media Mojo challenge blog.


What is Mixed Media anyway?  Here is a simple definition from Wikipedia:

"Mixed media, in visual art, refers to an artwork in the making of which more than one medium has been employed."


How to play along:
  1. Challenges begin on the 1st of the month and run through the end of the month. Winner is announced the next month along with the new challenge.
  2. Create a new project based on the current challenge and post to your blog or somewhere online that you link back to us.
  3. Entries that are linked to more than 6 challenges total (including MMM) will not be accepted.
  4. No more than 3 entries to the current month of MMM.
  5. Include a link back to Mixed Media Mojo in your post.
  6. The winner is named Diva of the month and asked to join us as a guest designer.
  7. HAVE FUN!
And now for our February challenge and this is so obvious that  this is all about HEARTS!
We also have a small twist- just if you want to add it- PAPER PIECEING!



So here is my take of this challenge and you are invited to enter our challenge HERE!


This art piece is a big chipboard heart layered with a smaller chipboard heart (Tando Creative UK)  and a very heavy Mixed Media background made with paints, gel medium, stencil , stamping and a huge cluster  made of paper and fabric flowers, wood pieces, old buttons and 4 clay pieces I made with Makin's Clay and  molds. I will show you much more in our blog during the  month. As for now- some close ups and just ENTER OUR CHALLENGE!



This word love is stamped over the tissue paper with permanent inks using Rubber Dance stamp and there is also another stamped image below, but not much seen.
I used  DecoArt Mixed media line products and mediums and just added some shimmer and fold mica over from other companies.


I also enter this to a few web challenges
