Warning: Vent zone. I really don't like doing mixed media! I just mucked up several distressed bg panels with acrylic stencil. I'm frustrated with the uncontrolled, unscripted mess and waste. SO outside my comfort zone! I'm ready to channel Jackson Pollack, splatter the whole works and call it art therapy. I'm thinking that whatever comes from this fiasco may well be one of those "I can't stand it, but it follows the challenge guidelines." and "Done is better than perfect." cards.

Vent over.

DITTO...but...I am going to look back at my DTGD challenge and see what I did...I know I did something...and maybe doing it a second time will be easier because I know I have not figured out a way to do mixed-media and like it!


While quoting you...could you tell me how you got your username? It makes me think of a yellow duck named Tessa!

Oh but Brenda, just go for a CAS mixed media. I reckon there's extreme Mixed Media and Mixed Media lite which is definitely more me - even after playing along with almost all the MIX challenges so far . Spatter away and then punch or die-cut your spattered piece and use that!!!
I was tempted, I must admit, to keep my MIX card yesterday, knowing what today's HYCCT challenge was .
Busy practising piano for tonight anyway, so I'm not going to get a card made today - lite or extreme.

I sure understand this rant! Lol...mixed media can be as simple as regular ink pads on a BG piece and sprayed with a glitter spray or painted with pearls or part of an image painted with stickles, two mediums used. DONE. it doesn't have to be all paint and paste and gloppy. Just at least two mediums. Even water color pencils and die inks is mixed media. I just learned this recently from a forum somewhere , maybe on here, but it took the pressure off.. Hugs!

It's a geek thing. A while back, Linda (Holstein) hosted a ways-to-use-it challenge based on usernames. Here's my card with an explanation.

I'm a bit of a math freak-- Loved teaching math with kids, and even led workshops for other teachers, particularly with geometry.

--AND--

I finished the mixed media challenge card! I don't hate it. That's the good news.

Then maybe I have a piece of cardstock in the stamp room just waiting for this challenge! I don't remember how I did it but I think I can figure it out if I look at it...


Now back to apples for me...had to uncramp my fingers from peeling and slicing...

You're still on apples!! We just ate the last of our tomatoes, I went out and harvested them yesterday and slow-roasted them this morning.

LOL, I've just been making my card for tomorrow's challenge because if I go to Biker Church with DH it's a long day - it's 120 miles each way. And I've used almost entirely scraps from my desk plus one embellishment. It would have been a great card for today's challenge.


I think the concept of Mixed Media scares people, but in it's "lite" form it doesn't have to be scary or messy at all. While it was way TOO CAS for me, the card I made for Biggan's challenge last week was just a brush of paint, some paper with gesso and some H2Os on the birds. Three elements on the card, three media.

I'm on my parent's computer and don't know how to open multiple windows or I'd link it, but the Mixability Challenge has a thread called "does mixed media have to be messy?" that might help. I think we all have an idea of what mixed media looks like, but it really can be as simple as ink and paint or a metal or fabric piece added on. I'm a big fan and I love the getting messy techniques with Gesso and spatter and all that, but it sure doesn't HAVE to go that direction. Hope you guys have fun with it. I'll be playing catch up tomorrow or on Monday or maybe later tonight if the family managed to keep the house in order while I was away. I'm anticipating having to go home and do some house recovery since they have had Friday night and most of today taken up with a swim meet...that and my 16yo has the mechanical baby home with her and I'm sure that has been eating up her time and energy.

I'm so amazed and impressed by all you ladies making 40 plus cards! This is my first year in this challenge and I gave myself a personal goal of 10 cards. LOL Well I'm pretty stoked because I have 16 to send. Woo hoo! This has been a blast and I'm so enjoying the beautiful cards in the galleries. ...but mixed media, don't know about that! Maybe I will give it a shot for my last card before packing up and shipping.

Progress Report: Thanks, Sabrina and Gail. I finished the card, uploaded it, then went to the gym to sweat out my tantrum. All better.

I kinda thought it would be easy. I had no idea that folks would be so stymied or hate the thought of getting messy.

I really enjoy mixed media now...at first I was very intimidated...after doing several of the mix-ability challenges it wasn't so scary and I do love the freedom to just "go with the flow" style and not conform to any rules....I've never been much of a conformist....

I wouldn't worry, Lisa! Some challenges will always be easy-peasy for some people while others will struggle with the same one. The way we learn and grow is by trying new things, not by sticking in a rut. I'd rather try something and then decide it's not me ( splatters!) than never try at all . Goodness, sketches are still somewhat of a challenge to me whereas for other people they're a piece of cake! !

OK, we've had two late nights with DH singing at a weekend conference and I'm bunched. I'll see y'all sometime tomorrow.

Yes! I love to do sketch challenges... Lisa, just because I whine and rant, doesn't mean squat. I'm learning.

That's why they're called challenges....I'm not a pink or bling girl and I struggle whenever there's a challenge that requires humor. We all have comfort zones and things that just aren't in them. I personally love to be challenged with new things cuz ya just never know what will be the next thing that you love!

Ha! We're all gifted (in different ways) and we're all special needs (in different ways). Glorious! We do what we can with whatever skills and resources we've at hand.

I'm totally intimidated by the mixed media challenge, but it's been on my try-it list for ages so I'm excited to figure something out.

Only if you MIX it with another MEDIUM. Break out some markers, or stamp on top of the coloring. Go craaaaazy! Well, not literally.

It's a good challenge. There will always be something that is more challenging for some than others. I found the washi one to be my biggest challenge and I like washi even less now for having done the challenge. On the other hand the Camo challenge made me cringe, but when I actually did it I was pleasantly surprised at my personal satisfaction for having made it.

Now as for my Seedless Preserve all over the carpet, that's a different kettle of fish, lol. Upon waking I have to ask myself why did I even start with that when clearly I was too tired to think properly.

Had a chance to get inky with my mom before I caught the afternoon train. A while back I'd given her an SU card kit so we worked on putting some of those together. She bought an ATG gun also and after watching a YouTube video I figured out how to thread it and we tried it out.

Oh yes, the humour ones cause my chest to tighten. lol. They are THE most difficult for me to do.

So true - there's a reason they're called "challenges"!! LOL

I had my pout over the washi challenge too - I just don't 'get' it. A lot of you are probably doing mixed media without realizing it - sponging or adding chalk to a background counts. It doesn't have to be messy.

What if I used Washi tape on the same card?


I feel like I'm pulling straws...but I'm getting closer to being successful!
