Stressed desserts - Mixed Media Place

Lovely Tuesday! Last night the last Emotional challenge went live in the Mixed Media Place's blog. We have new inspirations for you next month and I think you are going to like it! The emotion this time is stress. Quite a challenging one, don't you think?

I wanted to do this emotion again in a positive way. I'm no stranger to stress and it really can help to overcome challenging situations, but I didn't want to do a project about anxiety or busyness or deadlines. So I came to think a saying I'd seen over the internet somewhere: "stressed spelled backwards is desserts". So instead of reaching black, grey or red I did a pink, white and golden page.  

I used acrylic paints and gesso to make the background, painting them on to the page with a palette knife. The cakes are made of 7 Dots studio stickers, layered on top of each other. Lastly I added icing on top with modelling paste and Liquid pearls.

Thank you for stopping by today! And please visit Mixed Media Place's blog for a dose of inspiration!
