A Mixed Media Colour Challenge!
I found this blog a few days ago, and thought I'd join in their challenge. Part of the requirements was to use Red, Brown and Neutral as your MAIN colors. Being a mixed media challenge we also need to COMBINE at least TWO types of MEDIUMS (ie: paints, markers, pastes, mists, inks, etc...)
This is my creation....
I used embossed Core'dinations cardstock layered over 7 Dots Studio paper.
I altered my cardstock Distress Inks, stamped with bubble-wrap using paint, and applied Viva Decor Ferro and Crocco through some Prima stencils. This resulted in lots of gorgeous textures on my paper. I kept my embellishments to a minimum, just using some simple tags and a title to complete my layout.
And another layout to share, which uses Twiddleybitz chipboard, Core'dinations cardstock, and 7 Dots Studio papers. I just knew this paper would be perfect for these sunset photos I took just before a big storm hit last year. Once again, I kept the embellishment fairly simple to allow the photos to be showcased.
