The Outlawz Greetings Challenge

Hello, Crafty Peeples,

This is my second post today.  Here is a quck project for
THEME:  Use Black and White plus 1 Color

The Outlawz is a Membership NING Community so you must join to enter the challenges.  Membership is FREE...so no worries there.

I try to repurpose, reuse, recycle, upcyle most packing materials. For this wall hanger,  I used a corrugated cardboard box from an Amazon order to create the base.
I used padding glue to adhere the three 4"x6" pieces.
 The cardboard block was then covered with a piece of scrap fabric.
Gesso was applied to the edges 
Here, as is so often the case, I began to just play around with "possibilities" and did not take pictures along the way.  My hubby says I should just turn on my camera and let it run while I'm working and then go back and edit. 
I colored the panel using DecoArt Acrylic Paints Black, White and Majestic Red Metallic.
I sprayed the surface of the panel wtih 
 I used The Crafter's Workshop's "Art Is" stencil on the panel and 
the "Art Washes Away" stamp for my sentiment

The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, the pearls from Want2Scrap
ART CAT was colored using Gesso, Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink and
Tattered Angels' Almost Black Glimmer Mist

Shopping Our Stash - Hide And Seek

Hello, Crafty Peeples,

The current challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH:
 Use a Hidden Element or 
a Photo of Someone Playing HIDE AND SEEK

This project is not about physical travel,  but rather,  about emotional and spiritual journeys. 
Creatively, in 2015,  I plan to SOAR.  My "TRUST" ticket reminds me to trust my passion and my ability to put that passion into my designs. 

The Hide and Seek Theme of the challenge this week is perfect for my design.  
Sometimes my creativity plays "Hide and Seek." 
Bon Voyage will remind me that I can always take flight in a different direction. 
The slide out panel and hot air balloons were made from recycled corrugated cardboard boxes.  
The blue balloon was stamped on cardboard and then again on heat resistant acetate.

I was very pleased with my decoupaged ribbon.  It takes a lot of Mod Podge to achieve just the right stiffness, but I did help it along by adding several coats of fabric stiffener.  
I use Aleene's Stiffen Quik.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will play along with us this week at 

Challenges Entered: 

Fantastic Tuesday - Use something recycled -  The slide out panel and hot air balloons were constructed using recycle corrugated cardboard boxes.
