MMMC #3

 It's the first of the month and time for another Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.
I had fun with this one and I think you will too!
 Here's a layout of my littlest man at the park.  I wanted to keep with the black and white theme like in the picture but thought it would be fun to add pops of fun colors.
Plus had some messy fun wit this months Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.
 Yes!  Challenge #3 is to get all messy and bust out the paste.  We also got a super cool prize up for grabs.  Eclectic Paperie is offering a $25.00 gift card to one lucky player.

I used two different stencils and pastes on this layout.
I thought it would be cool to add a tone on tone look so I went with it.  The hot air balloons where made with a glossy black embossing paste.  Both products by Dreamweaver Stencils.
 Next I created an ombre look to add that pop of color.  To do this just add gelatos to your paste to add color and spread over the stencil.  The super cool stencil used here is from DCWV.
 Last is to let it all dry and add on all the cool embellishments.

You all know you love stencils and paste so go grab some, make something cool and link up to this months Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.
