A Mixed Media Experiment

I love the look of mixed media – the textures and colours are always so enticing to me.  But trying it is a bit intimidating…I’m pretty comfortable with paint and brushes as well as paper and glue, so I am not sure why, but tackling a mixed media piece takes about as much courage as I have!

But, yesterday was Mother’s Day, and I had an idea for a gift for my mom that I really wanted to try to make work.  So, out came some paper from DCWV’s Fiesta Forever stack, some paint, Modge Podge, stamps, brushes, bubble wrap and bling, and I let that blank canvas have it!

Thanks for stopping by today!
