There's a "mixed media" challenge every Friday over at Splitcoaststampers. I'm very much of the mind that mixed media is not a style, despite the predominance of a certain artsy, grungy, eclectic look that springs to many people's minds when you say the phrase. To me (and to the ladies who set the challenges, I suspect) mixed media is exactly what it says on the tin - using more than one medium!
The very talented Birgit set this week's challenge - make some modern art using at least two colouring media and doing something different than your norm.
I usually treat images pretty literally so my "difference" is to use a
rose image with non-flowery colours and crop it to make it look quite
I heat embossed in black on black card and then used metallic markers
and pencils to colour the sections. Some sections are just pencil so they're a
matt finish, others are metallic marker shaded with pencils so those
have a sheen.
I cut it out with a Nestie and kept the setting very simple as there's a lot going on
in that twinchie!
