Fiber, Stencil and some Bling

has this lovely
mixed media sketch for their sketch challenge.
You can find the information for the sketch challenge here. 

Trying something new on
my new 
 Canson's 9 x 12
Mixed Media tablet.
I'm enjoying adding 
fibers instead of printed papers
to my recent projects, and there
are so many colors, and variety
of fibers out there in our 
fabric stores to choose from.

In this weeks mail, 
I received 
the wonderful gift of the
Kaisercraft "Arty" stamp
from my arty scrapping Muse.
This inspired me to 
create this page. I adore how the
texture stamp fills in the small spaces with
texture and interest. I'm already
thinking of other ways to use this stamp. 
Loving that Two Crafty Leaf chippy too. The surface
is the perfect size to add some crackle paste.

Close up of the wonderful fiber.
I wish I had some in every 
color of the 
Until next time.....
