Default MIX58 Washy Washy (3/7/14)

Challenge Title: Washy Washy
Hostess: Jeanne S
Keyword: MIX58

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.

MIX58 Gallery

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

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!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Oh, I missed the part of mixing colors or running together. I just washed with one color.
And now it is dry and I am making my card. Is that okay?

I am still not doing the wash bright enough. It still turned out so light.
But I bought these paints for a class, and haven't used them since. So using something I have! Here is Singing in the Rain.

Thank you!

My latest ART JOURNAL 2-page spread is up. Thank you for looking and thank you Jeanne for taking me so far down the rabbit hole that I thought I might not find my way back. Awesome challenge!
