Today is the first Mix-Ability challenge. What is it? A great way to introduce ourselves into mixed media with an "I CAN do it" attitude.
Lydia is starting us out with a Yin Yang Challenge, to mix a matte finish with a shiny finish. My matte finish is brown acrylic paint in two ways; watered down to darken the pattern paper and then splattered on the pears and pattern paper for distressing. I chose Goosebumps for my shiny finish on the pear label.

Beautiful beautiful beautiful. Love the carefully designed bits of randomness and haphazdarness you've got going on here. Even the tape looks a delightfully planned afterthought. And then your pear image is coloured with such care and attention. Love that mix.
