Flying Mona part2

Here is how I did the flying Mona favorite background.  Got a straw. Cut end into strips. Picked out 3 to 4 paints. Spread out paints on craft mat. Dip straw "paint brush" into paints. Dap on paper. I used mixed media paper but you can use any type. Repeat with other colors of paint. Then I set aside to dry. Then I stamped Flying Mona on a Copic friendly paper. Colored her with Copic markers to match the paint colors I used to the background. Then I cut her out. She needed a little glitter on her so I added glitter to her crown circle.  Edged her in black marker so she blends well. Then I added her to the card and edged the blue ink. Layered the panel on black cardstock. Then added that to a card. When I was done I looked at the card and thought it needed something so I added a saying from Tim Holtz small talk stickers.

Flying Mona

                                     Lost Coast Portal to Creativity Challenge
                                                       Favorite Background
                                                                 April 2017
For this background I used a straw and paints. Yup that is it. What a fun, fast and textured background you can make with items we all have at home. To me it looks like fireworks so flying Mona had to come to the party.
Let's see what your favorite background technique. You could even win some stamps. Can't wait to see yours.

Viva Las VegStamps March Challenge

It is northern lights theme from Tera Callihan's video. I think that it is one of my favorite video's to watch to do northern light. She makes it so easy to follow. I did 2 things for the challenge. I made a card and a bookmark.

I did 2 because when I did the first one a big blog of white paint came down an messed it all up. But I saved part of it and made a bookmark out of it.

Over at Joggles AJA week 9  prompt is to transform one edge of your page into something shaped. When I gluing pages I missed one so I folded it over and I thought that was a prefect fit for this weeks prompt.
Didn't have a clue what I was going to do with this. Here is what I did.
