Happy New Year!
We have another holiday season behind us
and it's time to start a brand new year.
Can you believe it?
Anyway, it's onwards and upwards
and for me that starts with a new challenge at
This month we want to see...
Mixed Media and/or Colors
I'm learning to really like Mixed Media.
There's no right or wrong or "messing up".
And it's fun to experiment with new techniques
that I don't often use in my usual style.
I used mixed media paper for my background
and sprayed it with 3 colors of shimmer mist and water.
I blotted with a paper towel in between spraying
to get more of the effect I was wanting.
Next I applied some texture paste over a rose stencil.
I distressed and inked the edges of my card base and
tore the edges of the background paper before adhering to the base.
I had a chipboard frame which I painted
and glued on top of the stenciling.
Paper roses were added next, along with some twine.
I added some word stickers and sequins to finish.
So, do you do mixed media?
If you've never tried you should!
I hope you'll join us at
House of Cards this month!
We always love to see what you create!
