Mojo Monday on Sunday

Welcome to another Mojo Monday on Sunday!  Our November Kit of the month pre-orders open tomorrow and its a wonderful kit that you will not want to miss out on! Today we bring you an autumn fills the  air kind of sketch designed by  me  (Alda) and  a wonderful grungy inspired layout created by Jax. We hope that you find inspiration to play along with the sketch, and make this week a truly inspired one!

Jax used Prima's Time Traveler's Memories papers for her base and layers, building on the worn appearance by layering black gesso with Distress Paints, and topping them off with rusting powder.

The rusting powder was a bit dark once it had finished reacting. To give it a more textured, rusty appearance, Jax sanded over the raised areas, and you can see the gorgeous roughened texture in the photo above. It was almost a pity to cover it up!

The Prima vine from the October kit was perfect for a grungy layout; Jax partnered it with Flying Unicorn Adornment flowers.

For a final touch, Jax splattered Izink on the background. Because she had pretreated the background with clear gesso, the ink sits on top of the paper rather than sinking in.

We look forward to seeing what creative direction this week's Mojo Monday sketch takes you. Remember, there is a $10 gift certificate up for grabs for one randomly selected winner!
