mixed media: a single art composition involving two or more artistic media such as pen, ink, chalk, pastel, graphite, collage, paint, and any other media

Can you guess what our new challenge is?? Yep. Mixed Media! Amber here today with our newest challenge. There are few things that make me happier than getting my fingers all dirty while digging in to a new mixed media canvas!
