Default MIX238 - Me and My Shadow (8-18-17)

Challenge Title: Me and My Shadow
Hostess: Scrapacat (ky)
Keyword: MIX238 click to go to the gallery.


Hello and welcome to the Mix-Ability challenge here on Splitcoast! Our goal is to make mixed media, easy, approachable and FUN!

Use your supplies to make any project (card, tag, journal page, etc.) with text or a focal image. Then use graphite, carbon pencil, Pitt pen, colored pencil, etc., to "pop" a shadow to make it appear 3-D. Use what you have!

This is what I started with:


Before I started shading, I made the surface non-porous using micro glaze. You can do the same thing using mod-podge, matte medium, and similar. Just make sure it's really dry before starting with markers or pencils.





I start with a thin line under the edge I want shadowed. I smudge it in with my finger or a tortillon. It's easy to correct mistakes because it's erasable over the sealer.




Then I keep building layers, sometimes with a marker, sometimes with pencil. I just keep going until I like it.



Before...



After.

Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

This was a fun challenge. I'm going to have to practice some more. Here's my card.

I too definitely need to practice more!

Mediums - distress, distress oxide and Versafine inks, charcoal and graphite, Inktense pencils, gel pens, microglaze. How long does that stuff take to dry? I left it for a couple of hours, but maybe that wasn't long enough. I was glad to have used it and be able to erase a couple of less good attempts.

I added the shadow to the stamped images, instead of putting a shadow on a matte piece, I hope that still follows the challenge! Very very cool idea, and one I'll use again!

Here's my dragonfly card
