Welcome to the February 2019 Mixed Media Challenge! Enter as many entries as you'd like (created this month), or just pop in for some inspiration!

Mixed Media can be a little intimidating with all of the new techniques and products that are constantly coming out, but simply means combining more than one medium into your work. So even if you're just beginning, I challenge you to take out those gessos, sprays, paints, inks, gelatos, Distress Crayons, pastels, and anything else you have to get messy and have fun! If your project was inspired by a tutorial or video, or if you've made one yourself, please feel free to share it here.

To upload your entry:
1. Go to the project in your gallery.
2. Click on the 'link/embed' words.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

To do PUBLIC EMBEDDING:
1. Go to the project in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
4. Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

View Challenge Here: February Mixed Media Challenge

Optional Twist:Include your Birthflower on your project, or a Rose for this month of love! There's many variations, so if you see another flower for your month, please feel free to use it.

Welcome!

Here's an art journal spread with a rose (not my birthflower, as it's this month). I used tissue from a sewing pattern, Distress Sprays, and Metallique Waxes.

I'll be making a Junque Journal for my partner in the Mixed Media swap so, if it's not a violation of the rules, I'll submit this it as a entry for this challenge as well.

I love the background but not so fond of having cut things out of two different "white" papers!!! One not so white!

Fantastic projects, and I didn't even notice the different white papers.

I used a Martha Steward stencil I picked up from
Micheals the other day, some whipped spackle, and
some liquid pearls to make the bg on the left.

Ok, this is a biggish sort of project I did for a swap. Technically speaking, only the outside of the tin and the cover of the journal are "mixed media," but it's all part of the same post.
