MIXED MEDIA MONDAY


TRY SOMETHING NEW is the challenge on MIXED MEDIA MONDAY today. Here's my contribution, this double page LO is for a scrapbooking chunky book about me, 4" X 4", well it's ages since I've really done any scrapbooking, actually years, so I tried to do it in my best mixed media way, this is the nearest I could come up with, to try and keep it to how their taste as, my mixed media isn't usually girly wirly, flowery, colourful enough.


I tried a new acrylic paint with micro pearls inside , same consitency and texture as that of a facial or body scrub, mixed it together with an acrylic blue irridescent . Lovley colour and texture but be warned ...............blinking difficult to then collage anything on top of it due the the surface not being smooth due to the micro pearls !!!!!!!!!!!!!! took me forever and a day to glue on my painted girls and writing.!!!!!!!!!!!! next time images and writing first and then micro pearls acrylic paint !!!!! learn't my lesson thanx to mixed media monday.
bye
