Mojo Fun!

What a yummy sketch to work with today over on the mojo monday blog!

Nothing like a sketch to get your mojo moving on a Monday Morning!

I used chalk pastels on this fun card and used a few of the techniques I showed at the Portland Maine SU regionals this weekend.

First, I applied my chalk using makeup applicators and got a nice soft look. To add variation in color, I added more pastel color slowly with my blender pen.

For the beard, and all the white areas, I added a touch of glitter with my two way glue pen. For the belt, I used Stampin Up's silver shimmer paint. I also used the paint to color some of the circles on my rubon.

I originally tried a white piece of taffeta for the bow, but I thought it was too much, so I took that off and went with a stretchy cord to make the cute bow at the top.

To color the flock on my paper, I used sponge daubers and chalk pastels. I should have used a new dauber, the funky blue color back there, is from my tempting turquoise, and red mixing. :)

I added a bling in the middle of my snowflake, by removing a brad from it's casing. (it's really simple, just flip the brad over and open the prongs holding the stone in ~ then use some glue to attach to your project).

I just love the sketches from the mojo Monday team. If you are in need of a little inspiration this morning, you could try playing along. :) There's some close ups of the elements down below. Thanks so much for looking and have a great Monday!

Rubbah hugs,
