Here's my card for this week's Mix-Ability challenge... The base started as a spray painting experiment with layered stencils (started a few months ago), and it took a couple more layers as I played... I brayered white acrylic paint, then spritzed with water and dabbed to remove some of the paint. I added a little stamped texture using stamps from Impression Obsession.
I stenciled some Inka Gold in the corner, and since it's wax-based, I thought I'd try spritzing green shimmer spray over it, then melting it away. I've done a similar technique with Micro Glaze and I thought the Inka Gold might act the same. Well... it didn't remelt. It actually got a little crackly and flaky. Not what I was going for, but sort of cool too. I scraped parts of it off for a more imperfect look.

What a beautiful mixed creation.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
