Default MIX83: Naturally Elements

Challenge Title: Naturally Elements
Hostess: Janelle (a.k.a. Dizzymommie)
Keyword: MIX83

View the MIX83 Gallery!

Welcome to a next Mix-Ability challenge, it's Friday! Our goal is to make mixed media easy, approachable and FUN! We want to convince you that no matter what your style is - you can DO it!
Your projects can be any type – cards, scrapbook layouts, art journal projects, 3D pages.
I'm curious? What are you naturally drawn towards when you create a project?

Today's challenge is to create in ONE of the natural elements listed below,

OR


Design with a favorite style/color then find which element matches your project.

Fire = strong and forward (red, pink, orange, purple)
Water = soft and calm (aqua, turquiose, gray, silver)
Earth = harmonious and peaceful (brown, tan, yellow, russet, green)
Air = boundless and free-flowing (blue, white, gray)
Always have fun with the challenge, never feel like it's a homework assignment. Just be inspired to create!

Remenber to use the keyword "MIX83" when loading your project to the gallery.


Now for some amazing samples from Dina, Kyra, Jeanne and myself.

Here's my contribution. I chose to do an art journal page just because it kept going and growing.

I had so much fun doing this! I want to do more with all the other elements before we move to the next challenge. I hope I get time! My natural start oozed into some of the other elements, too. I guess that goes with my schizoid brain!

Oh dear, I like them all too! I guess I tend toward the bright and bold mostly, so I guess I'm going fire.

I'm pretty sure I oozed, too. I did okay with earth colors, but then I started embellishing with paint splatters and swirls which I think added a layer of "air" to my earthy card.

Creative idea for a challenge, Janelle. I combined your challenge with QFTD to create a "fire" card. Thanks.

Smile MIX83 What's Cookin'?

Janelle- great challenge, thanks! I started out with earth, but my background spilled into water elements. Did a bit of fire with my magenta tie. I just love this rooster material from my last quilt binding! Added some texture with an embossed panel from my stash which I colored with a green pencil. Finished with a gingham green bow/floss/cord combo. Here's What's Cookin'?

My choice was the earth tones -- Love the calming colors --- to me they are healing colors.

Here is mine

MIX83 Falling to Earth
First attempt ended up in the bin. Still have mixed (pun intended!) feelings about this one. But it was fun - that's a win . Thanks, Janelle.

Janelle I LOVE this challenge so much - you are so creative!!

I chose earth! My favorite place! The metal and the colors are meant to evoke the earth element.

(I'm late, but I had this blog post scheduled for today )

Heart MIX83 Applique Bunny with Carrot

I feel that this is a earth element design- dominant colors being yellow, green, orange and blue. I did the freezer paper applique approach thanks to my quilting friend Kathy- and stitched this at our ladies' quilting tea today in Bellingham, WA. It will be part of a pink quilt with 1930s materials
Here's Applique Bunny with Carrot
