Dream, dream, dream!

Mixed Media Moods Challenge

Well, I am just having a good old time with this challenge!  Those talented gals Mixed Media Jenn and Dee Dee Catron  have collaborated for a new Mixed Media Challenge, and this one got my wheels a-turnin!

Here is an old piece of cardstock, 8 1/2 x 11 inches, that I just couldn't part with.  An old flyer actually from the summer concert series or some such thing, but I keep those discards to use again.  I am a paper hoarder, if it can be used again for something else, then I will haul it off.

And I knew I wanted to gesso the page first, because I haven't used gesso in quite some time.  And then I couldn't find the gesso, so I made some.  Yes, the baking soda kind, and it came out quite well.

So, with some gesso, some paper scraps, rubber stamps, fibers, old lace, paints, and oh the buttons only came into play, when I found that fabric colored turquoise color one.   The blue dream words came from an old bookmark.  Yes, another stash. 

Yeah, this mood board was the perfect inspirational tool to get my butt in gear.  And oh, I didn't stop here.  More for this challenge to come!  Got a cool ATC and some mini tags to share, that are being used for another project.  Thanks to Dee Dee and Mixed Media Jenn.  LOVE THIS!

Pop in on those gals to see what they are up to...the inspiration will get you going, too!
