I couldn't wait to do something with this awesome sketch for the September Show Us Your Stuff challenge. The criteria is to use a handmade item and some mixed media.
For my mixed media background, I saw a Heidi Swapp video using gel texture medium, letting it dry and then putting it through the Minc, with foil on top. I used Golden Regular Gloss Gel and it worked perfectly!! I was so excited!! I also used a green mist, swishes of Liquid Metals, stamping (words) and washi tape.
My handmade item is a beautiful Charm's Creations heart with Butterfly.

Here is the inspiration painting:

The challenge theme for Scrap the Boys this month is "Not Happy!"
This photo my daughter-in-law sent the other day was perfect for this theme!! Someone's sister was having a little nappy free time! She sneezed! And pooped over him! His face says it all!!
