Mixed Media Madness! Join the fun!!

Hello All!! 

Its the March!! Already and its the first Saturday too! So that means we have a new drill for you over at S.W.A.T! This week we are challenging you to jump in to mixed media!

Now, I know that this just sounds crazy for some people and maybe even a little scary. But I promise if you give it a go you will enjoy it at least a little, you might even love it!! As for me I love it! Now don't get me wrong, I love my simple scrapping and my clean LO's documenting my families memories. But I truly enjoy playing with my mixed media products. I just love the process, the techniques and mess! Most of all I love how much you can express using different colors and textures! 

For my project I started with a quote from Dr. Seuss and a few of my favorite colors. I had so much fun creating this panel I hope you like it.

Products Used: Art Anthology Paint, Lindy Stamp Gang Mist, Prima Stamp & Flower, Basic Gray Flower, Misc Puzzle Pieces, Tim Hotz Stamps & Ink, Pink Paislee Tissue Paper and Faber Castell markers & Gesso.

Some details Just for FUN!!


 Here you can see the piece of tissue paper 
I tucked to give her skirt a little pop!

 I just love  how the Art Anthology 
looks when its been Spackled on!

 And you all know I love my Art Anthology!! 
Just look at the sparkle it adds to her shoes.

Before you go I have a quick slide show to share. It shows my panel start to finish, its up on my YouTube Channel...Now, I just started it so its empty, but it will be filling up fast!! I hope you will take a peek!

I hope that I have inspired you to try something new! I really can't wait ti see what you create!

 Have Fun GET MESSY and share your Art!!
