Guest Designer Corrine Lagneux

We're thrilled to share this gorgeous piece, created by our June Challenge Winner, Corinne Lagneux. Please enjoy her take on our July Pattern Palooza Challenge.

I am the mum of an adorable young girl who is the source of my inspiration and I have a great husband who understands and accepts my passion. I love all styles but I discovered mixed media and now I incorporate it into all my layouts and art journal pages.

I often work with images or postcards brought back from my travels with my husband. I also love street art. I live with my family in Lyon which is a city in east-central France, situated between Paris and Marseille by the Mediterranean.

I've just joined the team l'antre Scrap, who noticed my work and asked me to join them. My blog is in French, but as art is universal, you can find it here: MARCH 

I've applied black gesso with a few drops of water (drying with a heat gun), then I added modeling paste and I used a Perfect Pearl mist copper. I've again applied black gesso by small touches (without water) then I used my stamps. I used also white gesso on the feather and to make the lines with a pizza cutter.

Whether you prefer stripes or polka dots, flowers or feathers, or something else entirely, just have fun mixing prints on your project. Feel free to incorporate designs from patterned papers, newspaper or magazine images, stamps, stencils, or your own artwork--Just be sure to include at least 3 different patterns on your creation. Please do not feel required to also design with the color palette of the mood board. You are free to do so if you choose, but this challenge is specifically about mixing patterns and does not have a color restriction.

There is still time to join our challenge this month!
