Creative Fuel Mixed Media Canvas

Seems I've lost a day here somewhere and I swore I had to post this TOMORROW... but I see on the little clock that it's the NINTH today! Oy!! Have you done that? I blame a lack of good coffee in my blood so I've made a BIG pot of my favorite blend and sat down to get serious! haha!!

Ok so today I have another mixed media canvas to show you (can you tell that's sorta my thing??) I have SO many stamps and embellishments around the coffee addict theme that I wanted to just sit down with them all and make something cool about COFFEE!! And use some AWESOME shapes from SRTC!!!  And here you are!

So I started by drawing out that coffee mug outta chipboard myself and covered it in paper from a DCWV pack. then I made the border by starting with a layer of dry wall tape and the some grungeboard and chipboard shapes, buttons and anything else I could find, then althernated painting and spraying with glimmer mist products. I had plans to do even more to this project in general but.... long store made short.... I had back surgery! So, here we are! :)

What do you think?? It was fun to make that's for sure! The steam from the coffee is from SRTC as well as that pink tag and the little clock in the corner. Lots of the little bits and bobs in the painted up border are also from Southern Ridge Trading Co. They are getting more and more fun and unique products on their site it's hard not to want them ALL!!! 
Here's a closer shot of the tag.

Sure hope you get a chance to be crafty today!!!!

Cheers and Happy Crafting!!
