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!
