Challenges, Mixed media

No longer a mixed media newbie

OK the heading may be stretching things a bit, but I think this qualifies as mixed media so I’m saying it’s true 😉

Never in my wildest dreams would I have expected me to create something like this … Craft Roulette once again pushes me outside my comfort zone. What started as a boring background (made months ago just to mop up some leftover ocean mist ink after ink smooshing) looks totally different ink blended randomly with two brown inks, with a rice paper postcard stuck down with Modge Podge, washi ephemera stickers, and ephemera labels, and a few random stamps. I freaking LOVE this!! My first ‘real’ mixed media attempt!

  • Project: Collage
  • Colours: 3 pops of red (very small hearts)
  • Element: Far away (the Eiffel Tower is far away from me, and the postcard is sent from far away)
  • Random: Vellum or tissue paper (rice paper postcard is acceptable as tissue paper I think)

That also means I can submit this into the Use Your Stuff challenge of ‘mixed medfia’ this week – and three older items used from my stash, the rice paper and the modge podge, and also christening the ephemera pack that contained the butterflies and labels.

I’m also going to enter it into the V is for Vintage challenge over at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers … although I have another snarky card in mind for that challenge too!
