Mixed Media May; Stash Dive

Mixed Media May; Stash Dive

This month I challenged myself to try new colours for my palette, baby pink, lemon and Pale umber, Powder blue and also orange! Pastels are so off topic for me so it was time to give them a try. I’ll share my results with you later on. How about trying a new medium, there are so many interesting options out there, add some dimension to your projects with texture paste, layer things up with some gel medium which is not just a glue but can be mixed with paint for a glaze or as a resist to certain areas of your work too.

I hope you will join me for this challenge and try some different colours in your palettes too, would love to see what you come up with.

Need some inspiration, check out my mixed media workshop series I posted a couple of years ago.

Lets make something in May, if your mojo has been flagging lately, grab an old paperback and get messy with the paints on the pages, its a great way to kick start your imagination. Rip tear and punch out the results for some great motifs and backgrounds for your mixed media projects.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Welcome Back

November already! Where has this year gone! Now the evenings are drawing in, I hope you will join me for some mixed media fun with the latest stash dive.

Stash Dive #3 Mixed media meets texture

Stash Dive #3 Mixed media meets texture

In this months selection we have;

  • Stencils. Mine are Tim Holtz Layering stencils but find your favorites
  • Acrylic paint
  • Texture paste
  • Texturing Comb but time to experiment with anything you can find to create texture in your projects
  • The DVD is Seth Apter’s Mixed Media Surface Techniques

This challenge isn’t about acquiring new stuff but having a search through the cupboards for all the lovely materials you have but perhaps haven’t used in a while. Let have fun discovering the wonderful world of texture.

Will you join me for this months challenge? I’d love to see what projects this challenge inspires. Do share a link to any creations that you make from these kinds of materials.

Best wishes and thanks for reading see you soon

Billie :)
