As I've been doing the Mixability challenges, I look at what the technique is and decided on my main image/die cut from there. Of course, things rarely go quite as planned, but I think some of the messier background techniques lend themselves well to a more vintage, shabby chic tone and others that look more like modern art to me will work with just a sentiment or a fresher image. It has been a lot of fun to try new things and I find myself going back to them over and over on other challenges now. I think one of my favorite looks is the Gesso over dictionary or music pages with some added stamping or color-it is a very muted effect. I also love the spatter or dripping on bg's too. One of the things that surprised my about the Mixability challenges was realizing that I had already been doing mixed media and just didn't know it!
Well, enough computer time, I need to get ready for church. To those who attend churches, have a good day of worship. It is fun to think of all my internet friends gathering with their local church families, but all of us together praising Him!
