Week 5 Just for fun

We have grown by 1 Neet has kindly agreed to join the team with her unique style of crafting and knowledge,  an asset to the team for sure :)
So here we are and Zoe is choosing the themes for the next 4 week and first up is Mixed Media we all do it with out thinking about but there is more to it than adding  buttons and bows .
So how many ingredients will you use to make yours ?
I've used watercolour paper, gesso, colourwash, gell medium which I added some sliver sand granules ( made for standing candles in lol ) worked a treat for the texture, gold colour spray, stamped in veramark and embossed with black soot distress embossing powder. Topped it off with a friendly plastic head and couching braid.
Tip of the week is if you want to coil the braid first punch a small circle add some glue and make your coil on that then you can place it where you want on the finished peice
