Hi everyone, Mou here and welcome to the twelfth and final Take The Challenge of 2014!

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.

December is the season of gift giving. The challenge this month is to create any small handmade gift using your mixed media stash.  

Here's my take.

Here's a list of supplies I used:

  • Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural accents: Gesso, Gel Medium, Glass Bead Glitter Gel, Whipped Spackle

  • Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Colors: Steampunk set

  • Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Big Brush pens: Black, Scarlet Red, Chrome Yellow

  • Others: paintbrush, stamp, fabric, canvas, punchinella, palette knife

Here are the steps:

Use Gel Medium to attach tissue to canvas.
