MMMC #27 - TRAVEL

AUGUST! I can't believe we're nearing the end of summer already, but hopefully you've had some great vacation time! The August Mixed Media Monthly Challenge theme is TRAVEL... create any mixed media project that's inspired by traveling. Have fun!


We have a very special guest this month, Lindsay Weirich from The Frugal Crafter! She is also our prize sponsor, offering a FREE SPOT in her newest Crafty class called Mix It Up Mixed Media! There will also be a 50% off coupon code available for the MMMC players... check the MMMC blog to get it!!


Alright now for my project! This is one of those art journal pages that starts out with a pretty focused theme (travel) but goes in a very different direct... I guess I just had the ocean on my mind!


Well I started with a collage of travel-themed pattern papers (Travel Girl by October Afternoon), and that's about as far as that went :)


I blended several shades of blue Gelatos over the page, then used Iced Currant Gelatos over a Design Memory Craft Stencil. I also used a polkadot stencil to add some Copper Texture Luxe modeling paste.


How great are these fish stamps?! They are from the talented Fred B. Mullett and are so unique and fun to use. I fussy cut the stamped image and gave it a very thin coat of Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Glaze. Once the glaze dries it gives me a non-porous surface to easily blend Gelatos and Stamper's Big Brush Pens.


I used letter stencils from the Stencil 301 Collection and my Black Stamper's Big Brush Pen to spell out my quote - Only dead fish go with the flow.


Can't wait to see your Travel creations! Make sure to enter your project in the MMMC gallery by August 31st!

  14. Booking air travel, making hotel reservations and arranging vacation travel in general has changed completely with the advent of the internet and many people try to be their own travel agents. While you can arrange seemingly most of your travel yourself, you can't do as well as your travel agent in a long run! Oman National Museum

  15. A great number of small business owners have a constant urge to expand. Of course, the mere idea of expanding and becoming a "big" business known to thousands and millions of people is fascinating. However, expansion is not all about finding a new office space and hiring new employees to fill the vacant seats. quitmasturbating

  44. Along with everything which seems to be building throughout this particular subject material, your viewpoints are generally quite radical. However, I am sorry, because I do not give credence to your whole strategy, all be it exhilarating none the less. It appears to me that your remarks are generally not completely rationalized and in actuality you are yourself not even wholly confident of your argument. In any event I did take pleasure in reading through it. the counter burgers
