WK 7 Premium Craft Brands Challenge . . .

Good morning everyone, I don`t know about you but this week has flown past!
It`s Sunday which means a new challenge over at
and the theme for you is
Anything Goes
the design team was given the added challenge of
 making an embellishment from a stencil.
I used Premium Craft Brands Hearts In A Circle Mask Stencil to create my Lollipop flowers.
 Taking some pretty scraps of paper and drawing around 
the inner shapes using different papers and cutting them out. The outside circles were just randomly cut to add more layers.
You all know how much I looove my hearts and these are so darn cute nestled in the middle.
This is how the block of wood looked just after adding Gesso, Pretty scraps of paper, Old book pages and stamps
 and this is how it looks part way through after adding Pan Pastels, acrylic paint, Light Modelling Paste, stencil, stamps and some much needed doodle doodle dooooing!
I had no idea when I started how this one would turn out, I took a few wrong turns along the way BUT the great thing about mixed media is if you don`t like something then splatter some paint over the top and start again!

Want to see how easy it is to achieve a background like this?
I will be back next Sunday with a sneaky peek at my project for the new challenge, followed by a daily step by step tutorial all week long on Premium Crafts Brand Blog, so be sure to stay tuned!

Plus we have some exciting new products coming to Premium Craft Brand 
 { I used a few on here }
 so be sure to check out 
Nikky Halls Blog over the next week for all the lowdown.
Be sure to hop on by the blog and see what the rest of the lovely ladies have created and for all the information on the challenge and prize HERE.

Till next time
Big Hugs
