Get your favorite bevy and dig in, this is gonna be a photo heavy post.

This fortnight at the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS, we want to see how
outrageous you can get! That's right: O is for Outrageous is our newest challenge!
It's taken me a two weeks to get this completed, and I'm not 100% satisfied
with it, but here is my mixed media canvas:

I'm not going to go into detail, but let me just tell you that I've repainted the canvas at least three times from screwing up, and after applying all that fricking glitter, almost threw the damn thing out. Oh, and those flowers took forever to glue down. After trying 3 different adhesives because the flowers weren't sticking. I finally got results with Glossy Accents, but had to do 2 or 3 at a time, and apply pressure with my fingers for at least 15 minutes each time, in order for these f*ckers to stick. 
 There's a lot going on here: gesso, acrylic paints, embossing paste and stencils, images and Spectrum Noir markers, two types of glitter, mica flakes, insanely tiny beads, velvet flowers, Stickles, ink and tissue paper from a shoe box.
Here are some more pics for your viewing pleasure:

So, ready to play in our Outrageous challenge? This is the time for you to let your
freak flag fly and go all out!! We can't wait to see what you come up with!
