Default MIX145 - Enter the MatrIX!

Challenge Title: Enter the MatrIX
Hostess: Understandblue (Lydia)
Keyword: MIX145
VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

I was reading THIS awesome thread this week, and I saw Linda's awesome post about a rut-busting matrix she uses.

I thought that would be a fun way to do the MIX challenge this week, so I built a custom matrix for us. You have to choose two things from the first column, and one thing from each of the other columns to make your card.





Have fun - and remember - Mixed Media is easy!

Technically I am meant to be tidying my desk before leaving for a dog-sitting weekend.
And finding my missing Big Shot Plate.
But at least by the time I'd put away all the things I thought I couldn't use , I don't have too much mess left to clean up after this! It was grey and rainy earlier but now I see sunlight on dying leaves as the wind tosses the tree branches, and it's pretty much the colours in this.

The matrix reminds me of some Inspiration Dice I made (inspired by Carolyn Dube). They are 1" blocks of wood, painted and categorized. They always get me going when I'm at that Hmmmm moment.
