Julia Spiri~ Indian Girl on Elephant

Happy Thursday Crafty Friends! 

I'm here to share with you my make for
Time for a new challenge and it is an Anything Goes Challenge with a twist!  Please check the rules here.

and the twist is:


 So I found these vintage placemats in a box a while ago and hoarded them to use for a future crafty item. I decided that it would make a good canvas...just a bit of sanding and gesso and I had a repurposed canvas!

Here's what I made:

I used different Mixed Media techniques here using Texture, Spray Mists, Stencils (Microbial by TCW), stamping and 3D elements.

The flower stamps I got at a craft swap so I don't know who they are made by, sorry, but I stamped them in Archival Black and used my Faber Castell White Stampers Big Brush Pen

Here's a closer look at the embellies:

I hope you join us this fun challenge and be sure to check out my teamies amazing makes for more inspiration too and leave them some love! :o)
