26 October - Mixed Media

Today's challenge is a fun one....we want you to GET MESSY!  Create a mixed media inspired layout!

For those of you that may need a little help, here's the definition of Mixed media:
A technique involving the use of two or more artistic media, such as ink and pastel or painting and collage, that are combined in a single composition.

Here are the fabulous creations that the design team made:

I love playing around with mixed media and my paints, mists stamps and stencils so have a great time on the layout!

I'm getting on the old bicycle. AND...Now my journey has begun....

Isn't this dude the cutest?
We were out for dinner, and when we came back to our stateroom on the cruise ship (yepp, cruising in September) he just was there :-)

I pulled in lots of messy goodies for my take from mists and inks to acrylic paint and a bit of Color Shine, not to mention a heap of stuff from October Afternoon's new Apple Cider collection.  I was thoroughly inspired by all the wonderful goodies I received in this month's Jenni Bowlin Papercrafting Kit.  It simply oozes my favorite time of year.

I pulled out a bunch of messy stuff to make my background for this layout...

 I loved this challenge! Almost all my layouts have paint on them, so it was right up my alley. I took this photo of our yard a few weeks ago and it inspired me to use some fall colors.

It was good for my crafty soul to stretch outside my comfort zone for this challenge! I used whipped spackle and a stencil, india ink and Heidi Swapp mists on watercolor paper to create my background.

Once again, the design team did an awesome job!  We hope that we've inspired you to get out your mixed media products and get messy with us.  Remember to link your projects up in the sidebar for a chance to win this month!
