Creative Artiste Mixed Media September Challenge (DT Post)

I can't quite believe here we are in September already, but the calendar definitely say we are, which means that it's time for a new Anything Goes challenge over at Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge Blog. This month we are kindly being sponsored by Scrapmatts, an Australian store with a wealth of amazing goodies. Well worth checking out. 

I chose to focus on a little home decor project for my piece and created a shabby chic key and post rack for my hallway. I used Americana chalk paint over the exposed areas, and Scrapmatts chipboard key, which I then distressed by dry brushing white acrylic paint across and stamping in a vintage script stamp with Archival ink. I had some co ordinating papers in my stash to make the backing and sides look pretty, and I edged these with Distress Ink. 

I am entering this in the following challenges:

We would love to see your mixed media entries, so do join the challenge if you can.
