Welcome back to another challenge at Creative Artiste Mixed Media where we welcome any of your projects as long as they have a mixed media element with multiple mediums used on your entry.

I have two projects to share with you this month.  The first is my DT entry for this month - inspired by one of  Tracy Evans You Tube videos I created a mini canvas. I started off by using my gel press and adding some Tim Holtz distress oxide inks in Uncharted Mariner and Candied Apple .I then added some Sam Poole Antique Sand Paste in Delicate Blue.  Some of them were a bit pale for my liking so I went over them with some more Uncharted Mariner. I then used a Tim Holtz stamp for some wording in the background and part of a flower stamp from Tracy Evans set Elegant Stems.   I stamped out one of the flowers from the same set and kept one in the white and the other coloured with Candied Apple. 

I added some layers behind the flower with some printed vellum from Taperlogy and the writing from the stamp where I cut it away.  Nothing gets wasted!  I added a vein leaf from my stash and the butterfly was die cut and inked in Candied Apple.  I found the sentiment in my scrapbook stash so not sure where it came from but I thought it fit the piece.  I layered it onto some orange card stock and then onto a canvas board and edged it with some black Micron pen.  The little hanger from Tim Holtz just finishes it off.

I'm adding this into the following - 

We love to create Mixed Media 
The Outlawz - not a card 

My second offering is the continuation of my year long calendar that some of you may know I am doing along with some of the members of my Facebook group The Joy of Sets.  Here's my February page. I'm adding this into the following:

Allsorts - Spring 
The Outlawz - Not a Card

These are both amazing Fiona. I love the color (the light rust) of your first piece, and what a fun calendar too. That little bit of texture caught my eye. Thanks for having me as a guest designer this month. And Happy March too. hugs-Erika

Love your mini-canvas, Fiona! So many layers, and so much to enjoy!! The color theme is just lovely, and I like your 'nothing gets wasted' approach.

Your calendar pages are turning out so beautifully, and I'm already looking forward to the next one.
