Mixed Media Monday - Bingo


This week on Mixed Media Monday we have another new guest host - this time it's Alisha (from Two Cool Texans fame). Alisha has chosen the fun theme of "bingo" as the challenge. This is the piece I came up with. I used a heavy matt board vintage bingo card from Collage Stuff, which is about 12x12 cm (almost 5x5 inches) I altered it with gesso, inks etc. I also added my very first successful gel medium image transfer :-) -which I transferred onto a vintage book page, which was distressed further with gesso. I also used some bingo chips and a faux postage stamp from Collage Stuff.

Awesome! I love everything about it! The transfer turned out great. I have yet to get a successful one--you may have to tutor me.

I love this piece Diane! And congrats on mastering the gel technique... I've yet to try it. I did find one for water transfer and have just used some old decal sheets to iron images onto fabric. I got so fed up with failure, I joined a Yahoo Group...!!
