Challenge #161 - Mixed Media

Hi!  It's Kristy, here today with our newest challenge: Mixed Media.  What the heck is Mixed Media?  It is defined as:

mixed me·di·a
mikst ˈmēdēə/
  1. 1.
    the use of a variety of media in an entertainment or work of art.

There are so many wonderful examples of Mixed Media out there - from cards, to tags, to pieces of art to hang on the wall.  Check out some examples from our guest designer and the rest of our team.  We can't wait to see what you create!

We are very fortunate to have the talented Vicki Robertson guest designing with us! Here is the beautiful project she made for this challenge:

Here are a couple close ups of the incredible details on her card:

"I'm Vicki and delighted to be here as a guest designer for the Paper Girl Challenge Blog.  I've been crafting forever, but paper crafting for the past 18 years.  My work has been published in numerous magazines in the past and I've had the pleasure of being a member and coordinator of many designs teams over the years.

I'm married to my best friend going on 42 years this month!  We have two beautiful daughters, two handsome son-in-laws, three wonderful grandsons and a sweet princess granddaughter.

I recently finished a year term with the die cut manufacturer, Tutti Designs and am currently a DT member on the Double D Challenge Blog.  We would love to have you stop by and play along with us!"

Thank you for designing with us, Vicki. We're glad to have you. 

Now, here is more inspiration from our design team:

Here is my Mixed Media project.  I used watercolors as well as pigment powders on resist paper, along with inks, a diecut sunburst and other chipboard pieces.

I used modeling paste and a chevron stencil to create texture, then painted with watercolors to use on my card.

a little bit of gesso, watercolours, ink, cards, a fabric flower and chipboard...

I played around with some old Inka-Gold paints, stencils, wooden elements, and golden thread for this bright project.

For my background I used a piece of white cardstock, that I covered with 3 different colours of Distress Oxide Inks from Ranger.  Once the ink dried I used water to splatter over the page, and then I lifted it with paper towel.

And now.......congratulations to the winner of Challenge #160:
