Just Us Girls #197


This week Maria has chosen Mixed Media technique.  I love this type of stamping -- be forewarned, it is really messy.  However, it is so relaxing to just stamp - paint - layer, whatever strikes your fancy.

I did another page in my journal, and I am also entering this in to the Mixed Media Challenge; light blue, turquoise and a neutral.  I will be honest, I worked on this one page for about 2 hours!  [really??] - I just wasn't that happy with it so I kept adding layers.  I used Gesso, paint, ink, paper, gems, washi tape - HA! you name it I think I used it on this page!  I had fun -- that is the most important part :)
A little close up:

Have you tried this technique?  I highly recommend it!  Really, it is fun~  Maria has a video link on directions to start and then you can go from there.  I hope you join in -- Hope to see you at Just Us Girls Technique Challenge.

Hi, I really like (love) the work you did on this project. I like all the art you create. I particularly like mixed media. I'm just getting started and am in the midst of gathering supplies. I have watched a LOT of videos of a lot of different artists. What I would find helpful, if you please, is if you would list what supplies you used. You would help a lot of people who are new to paper art. Once again, I love your work. I really like the colors you chose. Great work. Have fun creating.

You made me smile about taking 2 hours to create your page. Took me all evening and on to 2am to finish up my two pages!!! So glad you posted to AMMCC because after clicking on your post I found my way to JUGS!!! :)
