Sometimes I tend to get into a scrappy funk and need a challenge to get me to do something new...this challenge is just for you if you find yourself in the same place from time to time.

I challenged myself to incorporate some sort of mixed media (paint, ink, or other fun technique) into my layout. I tend to keep things very neat and clean. I rarely add any kind of ink, paint or distressing. Not for this layout!



I dug into my paint, spray ink, and the new GCD Studios Tool and chipboard! I still kept true to my typical layout style but I "dressed up" my title by using using the tool to stamp little snowflakes on the G. I then very lightly painted it with white paint. After it was dried I sprayed it with a little spray ink and then lightly wiped it off. I love how the ink seeped into the embossed images.



So if your feeling a little bit "artsy" and need a jump start before your next project. Pull out some paint or other mixed media product and scrap away!

For this challenge pulled our your mixed media goodies(paint, ink, etc...)and create a layout. Link it up here by April 30th to have a chance at winning the goodies below!

I am fairly new on Scrapbook.com and have been checking out and participating in challenges. I was wondering, on this challenge, if you must use GCD Studios products???

I have been trying to do something more creative. I hope this still meets the challenge guidelines.
I tried to step outside the box on this one.

Okay, did my best to step out of my comfort zone with this layout! I used a lot of different techniques and products I have never used before. TFL!

Hi ladies! Awesome pages you've done!!!

I've been waiting for my GCD goodies from the States for like forever. I guess the Ash Cloud (grrrr) has been a guilty factor here... So I decided to let that go and make another page instead. It's mainly the title work with loads of distress inks and crackle paints that applies to the challenge.

So alike... By TesaB

If you want a close up on the title you can find it HERE .

I love GCD, but this lo called for dark...

The chipboard bracket was first covered with Glossy Accents, then I dropped drops of red and black acrylic ink onto it and allowed them to blend a little, then I sprayed it with Shimmerz Vibez to really run it together and give it some sparkle...
