I Mustache You, Do You Like Mixed Media-Scraps of Color DT Project

Hi Krafters,

Well, do you? I love doing mixed media! There is something about getting my hands full of Gesso and using miscellaneous items. This project is for my niece who has jumped on the mustache band wagon. I wanted to make her something she could hang in her room.

I cut the mustache shape out chipboard on an electronic die cutting machine. I lined the chipboard with thick pattern paper. Then I stamped "mustache" all over the pattern paper and then added a thin layer of Gesso. For the edges, I used crackle paint. To add texture, I applied texture effects using different stencils. Then,  I used different embellishments and die cuts (Spellbinders) to reflect her personality, likes and enjoyments. Finally, I added another layer of Gesso to add a little more texture.
I really like how this came together. What do you think? Don't forget to stop by the Scraps of Color blog to see more inspiring projects! Thank you for stopping by, Krafthead~
