Creative Embellishments Monthly Challenge

 Hi all! I have been on a creative journey this month. This is an Art Journal book I created for this months challenge. Me and Mojo have been going back and forth and not getting along well at all. What I want to create it doesn't. So I gave in this month and just went with it. Finnabair has been my inspiration artist this month my mojo loves her creations and so do I! :) I normally don't create with black but this month has been a exception. lol Using the inspiration pic I chose to use the hearts from the photo and use a couple of the wooden veneer hearts  I colored them both with waterdown gesso misted the puzzle piece one with some black 13 Arts mist on the lower half and blend it a little with water to give the Ombre effect (challenge twist) also highlighted a few of the puzzle pieces with read silks in Carmen red. The base pieces are Steampunk Christmas ornament (makes a great base piece!) covered in black gesso. The Steampunk Frame goes up the side of my cover. I cover this piece in half black gesso and half black gesso. I have used all sizes of the Gears. Some are covered in black gesso and some white. The 911 is the chucky Alpha. The BG of the entire piece is a Creative Embellishment distressed screen stamp. Love the grunginess of this piece Lots of fun ways to play with the challenge this month! Give it a go and don't fight mojo! She always wins!! :)
