Boaf blog ho ho hop and challenge

Hi all! :)

Welcome to the Birds of a Feather Holiday Blog Hop! If you have been following the hop, you should have been directed here from Sarah's blog. If you are just stopping by for a visit and want to join the Blog Hop, just hop on over to the Birds of a Feather Kit Co. Blog http://birdsofafeatherkitco.blogspot.com
and start at the beginning. Then follow the links on each lady's blog, through to the end.

Now, if you do decide to Blog Hop with us, there are a couple fun prizes up for grabs. The BIG prize (this one will go to one lucky winner who visits each blog AND leaves a comment at each one) is a choice of Birds of a Feather kits! At each blog stop, you will find a challenge posted by the Scrap Chick. For each challenge that you complete, and share with us on our Blog, you will receive an additional entry into the free kit drawing, AND, your name will be entered into a separate drawing for a $20 gift certificate to the Birds of a Feather Kit Co. boutique.  The deadline for sharing your projects with us is next Saturday, December 19.

My challenge is a mixed media challenge-    ( a great way to use your ink from the oct kit) grab your inks, paint, gesso or texture paste and splash ,splatter , stencil or stamp. For some ideas check out my past technique post- Http://birdsofafeatherkitco.blogspot.com/2015/11/technique-tuesday-get-inky-jen-t.html?m=0   
So,  use just a little or alot of mixed media in your project then share a page or card you made with us on the BOAF blog. 

Here is a mixed media page i made using the November and October kit for my challenge. ( Enamel dots and ink used were from my stash ) I white gessoed some of the background behind the picture and then i got inky .I then layered the pattern papers together to make my base. Next,  I misted, splashed and ink droppered. Then i layered those gorgeous patterned papers to mat my photo, cut out some frames from another sheet of patterned paper then grabbed the washi sticker sheet and stickers and layered away.

And I also want to share My favorite page that i made so far using the sept kit. I just loved the bright colors and how the gorgeous flowers in the kit reminded me of the dandylions my son was picking.
