Default MIX126- What if?

Hi this is MariLynn here. It is my turn to host the mixed media challenge. Innovative, creative, original... those are all words that I like to hear when people discuss my artwork. To me, being innovative starts with these two words "What if?" That is partly why I love mixed media so much. It forces me to try new things.

The other day I saw a craft post about painting on salt. Painting in salt


I thought it looked like a fun technique.I thought... What if I used white glue instead of a glue stick?


That is what I thought I would pick for a challenge for you.


Now you may look at all the weekly challenges and be intimidated by the challenges. I want to let you in on a secret... Sometimes we fail. I know you are shocked.


I tried to do this technique with white glue and it didn't work like I wanted it to. Ok, it was horrible. If you want to read more about my example you can read about it on my blog: Mississippi McGyver


So my challenge is to get over your fear. Say "What if?" and try something new.
It may work, and then again it might not. You won't know unless you try. In my opinion, it is better to try something and fail, then to have never tried anything new.

Maybe you can try the salt painting and you will do better than I did, or you can try something else. Just make sure you have at least 2 different mediums to qualify as mixed media.


Here is the gallery for this challenge: MIX126 GALLERY


Be sure to use these key words MIX126.

This is the first card I've made since knee surgery on Monday. Stopped taking the pain pills y'day and now my head is clear. DH says this card looks "kind of drug-inspired". I guess it is kind of dark and moody. Here is my What if....

Yeah I was able to join. I tried to paint on foil after adding alcohol inks. Did not turn out as I had planned. Next time I might use a different type of paint. Here is my card: Oh What Fun to Celebrate the 4th by Shoe Girl - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers.

MariLynn, I really must thank you for this challenge! As I said in my write up on my card, I check this challenge every Friday, and most of the time, I think, "Oh, that's too hard for me." So being challenged to let go of my inhibitions, and just try something, was very liberating for me. And you'll see I didn't give up, just kept adding "stuff."

Here's my Popsicle in Paradise.

OK, here is my "What If?" card-I used some Pearl-Ex Mica powder with Lumiere Pearl Paint to color my DSP for the HYCCT1508 Challenge ...


HYCCT1508_MIX126 Timeless Sympathy by Julie Gearinger - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Thanks for the inspiration to try something new (well, at least new to me )
