September Mixed Media Contest

This is my entry for the contest over at

Challenge Guidelines:
  1. Create a project of your choice -Canvas, Art Journal, Tag, Card, Altered item etc.
  2. Project must include at least 1 Recyled household item ( Example: Toilet paper roll, soda can, bottle cap, cereal box etc)
  3. Include at least 1 stamp in your project ( Of course we would love to see you use Unity Stamps but not required)
  4. Theme: this project must be for someone in your life that could use their spirits lifted or someone you just knew this would make a difference with if they received something from you.  It could also be someone you know that has been active in your community and making a difference, you decide.
  5. Have a blast!!!!!


So this is what I did:

1. Art Journal – First page done in my new Collage /Art Journal

2. My recycled item is a piece from the inside of a package of cookies.








3. Stamp included from Unity Stamps – Art & Possibility (Donna Downey).








4. I did this at a retreat and taught some of the participants some techniques used. They loved learning new things!

5. I definitely had a blast!! I painted with my fingers, used texture paste, ink sprays….FUN!!

Final result:
