Challenge Title: Washy Washy
Hostess: Jeanne S
Hello and welcome to the Mix-Ability challenge! 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!
Your projects can be any type – cards, scrapbook layouts, art journal projects, 3D pages.
My challenge for you this week is to make a watercolor wash background. This can be done easily with watered down ink refills, watercolors, Gelatos, or even diluted acrylic paint. Apply water to your paper with a brush or mister. Take a paintbrush and your watered down medium of choice and put it on your paper. Add more colors and let them run together. Watercolor paper is a little easier to work with, but cardstock will work too. If you want to speed drying use a heat tool.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!
