The Egg Man

It's the 15th of the month and that means another challenge at Bleeding Art!

And this month - anything goes! So for this challenge, I made this mixed media canvas done in a monochromatic palette!

I used the reverse side so I had someplace for my Egg Man to hang out! 

The egg is from Sandra Evertson and it's covered with micro beads with a hint of old paper from my stash. I also randomly put strips of the paper onto the canvas as well. Seth Apter's baked texture embossing powders (Vintage Beeswax and Chunky Rust) add a cool, vintage affect all over.

Rusty embellishments like wire, metal, and safety pins add to the vintage, worn vibe. And an old filmstrip photo finishes the look.

This was a fun project encompassing my favorite things: old stash, old paper, old rust!

So what will you make for the challenge?  Come join us to submit your mixed media creation! Follow us * share * create! You have until 14 December! 

I'm entering my projects in some challenges of my own: A Vintage Journey, SanDee & Amelie's Steampunk Challenges, and Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo!
