Mix-Ability Catch-Up

I've got more mixed media challenge projects to share.  These ones didn't become cards, but rather pages in my creativity journal, aka This & That journal.

 
MIX13 - Mr. Squiggle

We needed to hand-draw on our project - yikes!  I wasn't sure I wanted to share mine.  I swear, Lydia really makes me work and stretch for these challenges, and the first one isn't always stellar.  But secretly I've been thinking about zentangle and going back to try again.  This card uses a spare base I used in a previous challenge and also used in class.

MIX14 - Modern Art

Modern art, as in different or new style of art movement.  In this case, use two color mediums you usually don't use.  Dina had provided such a fun video in Mix Challenge #12, DD and I thought we would try to recreate it with our supplies.  Boy, did we have fun!  Different media includes acrylic paint, plastic wrap, bubble wrap, stamping with acrylic paint, paint + ink splatter, and journaling pen for some hand squiggles.  Oh, and maybe this is funny, but at the splatter step, my computer cover got it too.  I didn't clean it off; artistic charm, you know.  I will remember this challenge for a while!

MIX15 - Scene-It Scraps

Make a scene with some paper scraps.  The Sprinkles & Sunshine paper pack is perfect for this. I didn't have an immediate idea for the main image, so we'll just call this one a work in progress.

If you are interested in the supplies used for these projects, you can find them in my SCS gallery.  Thanks for stopping by!

Oh my word Heidi - I don't need another door opened.....I'm going to look into this Mixed Media. I do it already - not sure if I need another outlet - but I'm an addict and we're all enablers!!!! I love, love, love the zentangles in your butterfly! All three projects are wonderful.
