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.


  1. These are gorgeous!!! I loveeeeeeeee the colors and loving the tags on the first one!!!
