3 Girl Jam Guest Designer!

I am SUPER honored and excited to be a guest designer over at 3 Girl Jam today!!   Make sure you check out all the pretty ribbons over there and right now there is an anything goes challenge happening!!
I created a mixed canvas using 2 ribbons from the 3 Girl Jam store, pink crinkle ribbon and jute ribbon.


Gesso and gold crackle modeling paste are smeared over an UmWow Studio chipboard piece, hexagon background.  My cicada, also from UmWow, is painted with distress paint, gesso and crackle modeling paste and then pinned to the canvas.  I used some Studio Calico wood alphas and a banner which is also pinned to the canvas.

I hope you are inspired to join the challenge, I am sure there are fabulous prizes up for grabs!!!
