Oh She bring you a catch too!! Love love that stenciling and tail!! That’s one thing I so don’t like about having gorgeous bkgs is that we have to cover them up. So glad at least that gorgeous tail piece don’t need to be covered just beautiful

Everybody's work looks fabulous! I am ruminating over my piece...might be a mystery for the next few days...too busy for playing. I am enjoying watching everyone's pages grow.

Wow there's some gorgeous pages on here. I may have to dump mine as I lost my scene along the way lol. I did enjoy the process and may try it again down the track. I need to realise that not everything has to be covered up lol.

Going to drool over the pages on here...happy Wednesday

Don’t give up, Jayne!! I’ve worked on my music page today. Pulled tape off, put different tape on. Glued down an image only to carefully pull it back up minutes later. Fortunately the glue hadn’t set! Love/Hate relationship going on that swing back to love. Keep at it!

Thanks Carla...I have decided to leave mine as they are in my journal and try and make another one. This time with a scene. I forget that I was to have a scene. I started with a garden and got carried away with the inking LOL. By the time I came to stamp you couldn't see what I had stamped....which was difficult on the bumpy BG LOL. I shall persevere as I love mixed media.

Ann, your panels are beautiful...love them.

Unfortunately I have clicked on like...ooops. It's habit and by the time I come back on this thread I will have liked everything including my own post several times...LOL.

Happy day....I must not get distracted anymore. I am heading to the scrap challenges

SuZ step away from the mermaid......she is gorgeous!!!!! Carla I love your music page and Ann your cards are fabulous. I was hoping for more information as I'm going away on Thursday. I guess this challenge is not for me, but I will be sure to check the gallery at the end of the week.

Carla I forgot to mention that your musical page is gorgeous. My apologies.

I did another panel. It only took a few minutes. I will finish it tomorrow. Here it is. I actually got some white space on there. Happy day

Do any of you ever create your projects with and knowing you have something that your project is perfect for and then when it’s time to get it ..can’t find it? I have such a bad bad habit of that . I create telling myself I have w/e it is so I build my project for it. Lol haha then realize omg ok where did I put it. It can even be something I looked at hours just before starting and then poof I think I have lil menehunes running off with them lol just like the glue and now my pearl!! Grrrr. This is why I love VSN so much!! It has my brain and mind at prep everything make sure you have it all ready because you have a time limit!!! Lol so when I locate my pearl I will surely post my competed project and I’m truely surprised at the end result. Mahalo Much Sis Jayne for pushing me to head over here and play. As well as Sis Ann for encouraging me and our alphas to come check it out ...and of course Sis Susie for always encouraging as well . Don’t think I forgot you Sis Catherine lol Mahalo All !!

Sis Ky for this out of my comfort zone project mahalo Fairy and tails Much.. it was a bit nerve racking but the end result surely was worth the time and effort.

Mahalo everyone for sharing and caring...Sis SuZ gorgeous work . sis Carla yours as well as well as Dagmar!! Everyone’s turned out absolutely magnificent even those that just was at their starting stage....love them all!!

I love the way she is holding that fish! And all the little underwater details.

I'm assuming there are still a couple more prompts to come?

Good morning on Wednesday, 1/9. I did add some color to my pieces yesterday, haven't stamped anything yet. Is there a post for today with more direction? I can't find it if there is. I am leaving on Friday for the weekend so probably next week sometime, it MAY be done. Jean

If your page lacks color, the next step is to add some. Acrylic paint, watercolor, whatever you like. After that use your stamps to add interest to the background. Take a close look at your stamps. I'll bet you have a lot of little images that get overlooked.

The next day, work on your focal image or sentiment. I'll be back tomorrow to get all caught up!

Absolutely gorgeous Sis SuZ.....
I found the "Pearl" that was holding me back from completing this project...Happy I decided to catch up and played along. Well since my panel was already colored I ended up adding the basic black and white and of course my mermaids demanded colors and sparkles lol so I gave both of them lots of that and practically the whole card too...Mahalo Fairy Much everyone . Especially Sis Ky for a fun adventure and journey outside my comfort zone. Special Mahalo to Sis Sabrina for the magnificent advice you sure got me to home plate on this project. Aloha

The white embossing looks fabulous on your underwater background!

I'm still reckoning there should be at least two more prompts, so I'm holding off on finishing mine.

Well if there is more to add, I have a couple more panels started!

I purchased the crackle medium by Folk Art! Wow, does that stuff work well and fast! I wasn't done adding the paint to the layer and it was already cracking before my eyes!

I haven't done anything further to my panels just yet. Somewhat waiting for inspiration to strike.

That said, all the panels I have seen on this thread are amazing!

Your black pearl is magnificent and your mermaids live in a magical grotto.This was really fun playing along with everyone. I think I jumped the gun too but once I get going on a project like this my mind goes into overdrive. I will wait for the other prompts from Ky in case there is something else I can do.

Oh wow everyone's work is incredible. Dagmar and Sis Vicki your additions to the MIX310 gallery are amazing!! I got a bit more done, tore off heaps of washi tape and lost most of the original work under more paint. I tried to do a focal image, but most of the base coat doesn't like my ink. I put my big girl pants on and ripped out a page from my journal.


This is what she looked like before. https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/g...&ppuser=299565

Looking at this picture below, I need to keep working on her face, she could use a nose job LOL. I won't do anything more on the other page until we hear from Ky.





This is a dodgy photo, the colours have much more gusto in real life.

Coming up for air... I've not forgotten you all! I need to go back and read every post and get caught up. You know how life is, unpredictable.

I was supposed to be off all week, but we had a carrier come down with an illness and not enough carriers to cover every route. So I've been called in to work early and staying late. I barely have time to scarf dinner and head to bed.

Tonight I got some time to work on my project to get caught back up. It's only Wednesday! Wait, it's Wednesday?

It doesn't seem like much, but I added watered down acrylic paint on my sky and grass. I added stamping around the edges to break up the empty sky and land. I'm using a Stampendous cube with several textures on it. I added some distress ink with my fingers to each of the sky pies. It enhances the crackle effect. Hard to see in the photo but nice in real life.


I stamped my images and have them ready to color. The next step is get everything glued down and begin my favorite steps. Final touches!!

Use a graphite or soft leaded pencil to add shading around your elements. I draw my graphite along the edge I want to shade, and blend it into the edge with a tortillon or my finger. If you seal your paper, you can use a Copic, Pitt, or other pigment based marker and use your finger to blend. I like that method because I can lift off any mistakes with a 0 blender pen or a slightly dampened q-tip (rubbing alcohol).

After I get the shading done, I start looking for places that need a doodle or some white pen accents. This keeps your project in balance and makes it all come together and pop. I really like to edge my project with dark ink, or draw a squiggly line around it. I add little hash marks and circles, maybe a heart or a flower. It's just freedom!


Once you like what you have, you can seal it but you don't have to. Upload and let us all love on you! Congratulations! Take a few minutes to note what worked well and what didn't so the next time to try this method you can make different choices.


I'll be back soon (I hope!) to share my final project and to spend some quality time with you all!
