Challenges, Mixed media

Hero Arts mixed media

I joined the Hero Arts mixed media Facebook group, hoping to dip my toes into the mixed media creative world to learn something new and to see if I enjoyed the techniques. This week saw the first challenge where we watched a demonstration video about adding very simple texture to a cardfront – and this is my attempt at trying to replicate it. Sadly I don’t have any of the Hero Arts mixed media products yet, so I made do with whatever paste I could find (it was a very thick pastillage texture paste from Gina K that I hadn’t opened yet). It didn’t give the same results, but I’m super happy with how it turned out! I used the Mermaid stamp set by Hero Arts for my image and sentiment – as for what I used on the background, I threw so many different types of ink etc at it, I couldn’t honestly tell you what ended up in the final product!

I have so much more to learn with mixed media, but I’m looking forward to the journey along the way.

While I’m at it, I think this card also works well for the following challenges: The Paper Funday great outdoors challenge, Never Before Used Schtuff challenge, and Simon Says Stamp happy birthday challenge.
