I love Mixed Media Monday challenges and this week’s is no exception. The theme is ‘Opposites’ and I made a few notes about things like night and day, good and bad, men and women, etc. Then I found this image in a magazine… and the rest just fell into place!


I took the lyrics from the Cole Porter song and could hear Old Blue Eyes singing it in my mind as I prepped and painted away. I followed Barbara’s instructions and managed a fairly decent blending and thinning process for my background (acrylics) and when that was dry I stamped the bamboo (Anita’s and Tandastamps) with Olive green Stazon. The embellies are from my Craftaway a Sunday prize – aren’t they just perfect for this journal page?

The one good thing that happened yesterday was that I found a complete boxed set of Trionimos at the Car Booty! I’d heard of them but never seen them and I have already started altering some! They’re really neat so they’ll make fab pendants, bag charms and/or key fobs. Such fun!

I am Guest Host next week on MMM, so get your thinking caps on!! TTFN! 😉
