Default MIX456 - Mix it first! (10/22/21)

Challenge Title: Mix it first!
Hostess: dini
Keyword: MIX456
View the gallery for this challenge HERE

Happy Mix-Ability Day!

For this week's challenge, we're taking the MIX in Mix-ability literally! Mix 2 mediums together before adding them to your project. Some ideas:
  • reinkers and glaze
  • acrylic paint and gesso
  • texture ground or glitter and gel medium
  • alcohol inks and glue or liquid clay
Here are a few tutorials that might be fun to try!

Glitter Paper Tutorials at Splitcoaststampers
Shaving Cream Stenciling Tutorials at Splitcoaststampers
Colored Glass Tutorials at Splitcoaststampers
Colored Texture Paste Tutorials at Splitcoaststampers

Remember, for your project to truly qualify as mixed media, you need to use at least 2 different types of art media. You can click HERE for a list of supplies you could choose from. Please remember to put in the correct keyword (MIX456) 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! Go forth and create!

I used Brushos to colour my paste: MIX456 Another Poinsettia by Cook22 at Splitcoaststampers. I also used paint and metallic rub-ons, as well as distress inks for a DTP base under the stencilling.

And since there was still a little paste left after creating this background, I added it to a random background from my box and will be along tomorrow when I've added a little toucan or some tropical bird into it.

Fun challenge, it encouraged me to have a play with shaving cream again.
