Default MIX262 - Let's Play Favorites

Challenge Title: Play Favorites
Hostess: Ky (Scrapacat)
Keyword: MIX262 <---click for the gallery

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

This week's challenge:


I love mixed media - there are so many wonderful ways to combine things. I have a list of favorite techniques and artists. Your challenge: Use my favorite artist and your favorite technique!


My favorite artist is: Kate Crane! Here's her Pinterest page, and her Blog.


A favorite technique - just check out all the new stuff happening on YouTube from the great companies, designers, and illustrators who just came back from Creativation (was CHA). One of my favorite people just happened to be featured several times. Who's that? Why, that cat that Understands Blue, Lydia Fiedler! And don't forget our wonderful technique library right here on SCS.

I love the way Kate creates her base paper. So, I followed her lead and used my gel plate (see our tutorial: Gel Printing Basics). My brayer is MIA so I had to settle for a credit card to spread the paint. Once I got the colors down the way I wanted, I added white acrylic paint through a stencil.




Then I started adding texture and contrast with black text stamps, splatters, pen outlines and marks, white circles and gold modeling cream stamped with a bottle lid.





Next I placed my letter dies and cut out the word PRAY. I applied it to the bible page at 2 Chronicles 7 and glued it with mod podge. I added more details with black pen, splatter stamps, some acrylic stickers and a paper clip with burlap ribbon.





Now, don't feel like you have to go to all this detail - be inspired by anything you see of Kate's work. Her colors, the way she puts her words over her pieces, or a quirky element that catches your eye. Explore! Play! Have fun!
Your projects can be any type – cards, scrapbook layouts, art journal projects, 3D pages. There is no due date, but we post a new challenge every Friday.


Uploading:
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!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

I had a lot of fun and it's going to take me forever to clear up - plus I have some dead failed monoprints that even by my standards may be beyond redemption. And one out of my quota of 4 Christmas cards for Jan - was planning to make 4 the same but this certainly isn't a model for that!

Here’s mine! I made two mats and will keep them for the right occasions and then attach them to card bases. My fingers are SO many colors!

I had so much fun doing this...when I get started with that gelli plate I can't stop! It's like eating potato chips! Here's a picture of some of my backgrounds which I'll use another time. I've got rest up now!

I used one of my other gelli prints from yesterday and made a card for the IC challenge...I am loving that faux watercolor technique and Kate's artistic inspiration!

Late, but this is definitely a favourite technique when I have time and energy. I had at least time on my side yesterday: MIX262 Always Time to Trust
