Welcome to the new and updated Mixed Media Challenge! Enter as many entries as you'd like, (created this month) or just pop in for 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 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’.

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.

You can't get more Christmas/winter than an embellished sled ;-) I'm in with the twist this month.

Hello ladies, I did not have time to play last month. My mother was diagnosed with lung cancer and passed this week :*( So last night I wanted to play with my paints and watercolors and stencils. I think my mom would have liked it ( and yes, I know there is a typo, I corrected it but did not want to re-take the photo ).

Here's mine - a wallhanging where I printed out an old photo on fabric and surrounded it by sewing on ribbons and laces, and added a hand made yo you flower and other stuff

I think when we're having fun is when we produce our best work, and it shows in your pages! I've been working on color swatches for all of my sprays and embossing powders for the last few days, and still have so many more to do. Trying to get a bit more organized before the new year.

Barely mixed media, there is a bit of gelatos, and acrylic paint... The snowfalkes and heart were heat embossed.


Lights By Beebuzz

I have a pretty big spray collection and my guilty pleasure is to make a new swatch each new bottle I buy

I dont have enough embossing powders for swatches... but that will change in 2019
