Default MIX17 - Yin / Yang Part II (5/24/2013)

Challenge Title: Yin Yang Part II
Hostess: understandblue aka Lydia
Keyword: MIX17


Hello and welcome to the Mix-Ability challenge here on Splitcoast! Our goal is to make mixed media, easy, approachable and FUN! We want to convince you that no matter what your style is - you can DO it!

If you want to start these challenges in the pages of an art journal, instead of a card, or on scrapbook pages, or on 3D items - please know - ANYTHING is welcome! We want you to learn and enjoy!

My challenge today is the second part of the very first Mix-Ability challenge - Yin Yang.

For this challenge instead of shiny and matte mediums, I want you to use two different mediums with a different finish on your card - one smooth and one rough.

You can use these for your smooth texture, or others:


  • Dimensional glaze, like Crystal Effects OR
  • Heat embossing OR
  • Acrylic paint OR
  • Glaze pens
And here are some examples of bumpy or rough mediums:


  • Glass bead gel OR
  • Glitter OR
  • Textured mediums like Flower Soft or microbeads OR
  • Dry embossing or distressing

For my sample, I chose Crystal Effects and glitter for my Yin/Yang effect.

I can't wait to see what you do!

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos. Then come back to this thread and paste a link to the card in your gallery so we can all ooh and ahhh!

A neat idea for a challenge, going back to Mix1 with a twist for Yin Yang Part II. I'm going to have to let my ideas simmer a bit while I try to think of what I'll play with for this challenge. Great cards in the gallery so far!

Contrasts always make for interesting compositions. I combined this challenge with the others for today.

Thanks for the fun challenge, Lydia! Here's my Verdigris Wedding Window . Thanks so much for looking!

I'll be back to comment...have to go to Home Depot for brackets to put one of my closet shelves back up. Sheesh! The builder should have known I'd put all my suitcases up there! Must use heavier brackets & bolts!!

Thanks Lydia! My dragonfly wings are my smooth element and my gesso and Distress Paint add the rough element.

Here is my art journal page, I left the letters very smooth, colored them with black Sharpie. I used cheesecloth on the background to give lots of rough texture:

Getting something made for this before tomorrow rolls around .

It's not quite like I imagined, but close enough, and more importantly it was fun.

Summer is here, so I can play! Pretty conservative, but for my first MIX, it isn't too bad.
