Going First Class

I'm joining in on a A Mixed Media Color Challenge Group, AMMCC #2...and combining it with Lisa's Blogger challenge, which this week is create your own backgrounds. The colors are yellow, peach and lite pink at AMMCC...and I really struggled with all pastel tones, so after dressing her a couple of times, I added a paper with a hint of blue, and accessorized a bit!

  I layered on gesso, pink and yellow paints, a bit of lite brown to make peach, used my bottle of Goosebumps for the first time....I found this to add a lot of texture....stamped and paper pieced. I pushed some inks thru a homemade stencil to add a bit of color and interest to the background.


Wow...I'm on a roll, if I could only keep it up!  hugz
