MoJo is on Vacation

Hi UmWowStudio fans.....
can I just say....I hate it when my creativity
decides to take a hiatus and I have a deadline!!
What do you do??
As for me...I start scanning challenges and mood boards
once again I landed on
Our Mixed Media Moods

so I just began creating.....
with no plan or any true inspiration.
I did like the transparency ideas
so I decided to begin there.
I pulled out a piece of Tissuestock
and a tub of Modeling Paste

Now, where I went from there is quite the journey.
I cut the Tissuestock into a tag,
painted the back with Glimmer Glam,
adhered another piece of Tissuestock ~ French Script,
then a piece of Kraft Cardstock
I colored things using
Distress Oxides
Glimmer Glam to name a few.
I was kinda getting there but still not really happy...

I thought that if maybe I began working on
the UmWowStudio Butterfly chipboard
Now, the one thing I LOVE about
UmWowStudio Chipboard
is it stands up to most anything you do to it
and still looks FABULOUS.
I painted my Butterfly,
added Glitter Glass,
cut the wings apart.
and spritzed the back with water.
You can actually watch the water
soak into the chipboard,
which allowed me to manipulate the chipboard.
Still not happy, I added more paint.
Now, it was beginning to take shape....
I adhered a piece of branch for the body
....and there it was.

I found a quote, stamped it onto a manila tag
and cut it apart.

It all worked....
though not my finest piece it was a great exploration
of various papers and medium
....and I'm HAPPY.

THANK YOU for stopping by.....
