The term Mixed Media covers a lot of things so how can anyone get it wrong. This is a fun place so if you are new and looking to have a play by having a go here is a bit of help. A technique involving the use of two or more artistic media, such as ink and pastel or painting and collage, etc, that are combined in a single composition.

Margaret
I have painted journal page with Red acrylic paint.  Painted stencil with moulding paste.  Added sentiment that someone posted on facebook.  Added glitter around sentiment.   Added picture drawn by my 2nd granddaughter.
Added red flower washi tape, butterfly stickers, red punched flowers and rhinestones . Added glitter washi tape along bottom edge.


 Hazel
I painted the plain wooden hanging with acrylic paint, leaving one or two areas without full cover to give a distressed look, using an alcohol pen to ink the 'nooks and crannies'. I stamped randomly with an Anita hearts and script design that I've had for years, inked with memento tuxedo black. I coloured the white ribbon with a darker red alcohol pen, using this to fill in some of the hearts. Flowers are Craftime and the spacers are Prima.



Take care

Inspirational Post by Suzi

 By Suzi
My project this month is an altered notebook.  I've used Faber Castell Gelatos in Pistachio, Blueberry and Metallic Blueberry for my background, after blending these together with a dampened cloth I added a layer of Liquitex Gloss Super Heavy Gel, This works wonderfully as a sealant and a glue, so I added some to the back of my centerpiece before layering that on top of the notebook whilst the gel was still wet, I added more gel over the centerpiece to seal it, then left it all to dry overnight.
My centerpiece is a page from the Spectrum Noir Colorista Premium Marker Pad - Butterflies, which I was lucky enough to receive as a freebie when i purchased my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens.
