Mystery Challenge

Mystery Challenge

I didn’t do such a good job of keeping up my end of our 90 day blog everyday challenge…’s been 30  days since my last blog post……my life can slow down anytime now!  lol

I created this page over at a friend Karen Burchill’s house and used my art journal prompt cards.  The start of the mystery!!  You never know what you’re going to pick out of the pile and how it will all fit together on one page!  20150601_203131

I also grabbed my pile of deli paper backgrounds Karen and I had made a few weeks ago to use as my background to start laying down the base texture and color theme for the page.  It turned out to be a pretty cool idea.



Color scheme chosen and some background texture.  Now for the napkins and some stenciling.


I just love the little daisy flower stencil by Crafters Workshop.  It was the first one I’d ever purchased and still pull it out from time to time.  This is where I was trying to find a quote that would  match puzzle pieces……Pinterest here I come!!  Apply Gesso to the fronts of the puzzle pieces and let them dry.


I used some of my Lindy’s spray to color the puzzle pieces and wrote out my quote and adhered them to the page.


Some additional Lindy’s ink spatters and drippage, outlining of the puzzle pieces and some of the elements on the napkins and stencils and I called it done!  Here are some close ups.




I’m quite happy with this page and how it turned out.  Thanks for popping in to check it out!  Always appreciated.  ❤

Many huggsss,


About mycraftingtherapyroom

My name is Yvonne Gebauer and I'm a cardmaker and have just entered the amazing world of Mixed Media and am LOVING it!. I'm a wife, a mother to two grown boys, and a grandmother to 5 amazingly beautiful grandchildren which I have to say is really all it's cracked up to be and more. I work full time and am really starting to think that work is getting in the way of life!! I have a large crafting room and I'm my happiest when I have a group of friends get together in this room and just have a blast. Every once in a while we actually create something! Or, when I get a chance to have one of my grandchildren over to just let them play and create what they want with what I have in my stash.....which is allot. My craft room is my therapy room of sorts. My place to go and just be......
