mixmedia possibilities

The mixmedia art gives us a lot of possibilities to express ourselves. We can create many layers, journaling spaces, paint splashes, drawings…

So I thought about it once again and decided to go back to my roots – just for this layout.  I mixed gesso, watercolour paint, ink, stamping, Pan Pastels… I added some masking tape, journaling, photos and Marcy Penner’s printable cards. I also used American Crafts goodies from the new Neapolitan collection by Lizzy. Lastly, I glued Basic Grey alphabet and pressed a funny flock-surfaced ‚iron-on’ by Prima Marketing. Of course, there is only one base that can cope with these layers – gray paper from my new collection LET it GO by I {lowe} SCRAP.

By the way, today I would like to present PAn PAstels to you (I know this layout isn’t a good instance of this technique, but in the forthcoming days I’m going to publish a more adequate example). This March Prima Marketing is collaborating with PAn PAstel, their posts will include works created using PAn PAstels. For this reason all of the PM designers – me inclusive – were sent a whole set of these pastels.

Initially, I thought that they were another ‚expensive nothing’ for American hobbyists, but, surprisingly, they turned out to be really great and have awesome smooth texture. I think they are a perfect alternative for mists, for example – they are cleaner to use and they make for unlimited freedom in mixing colours; they are easy to remove with eraser and – what is most important for me – they don’t make the paper bend, so there is no need to use paper tape to hold the edge of the base which we are working on. I plan to tell you something more about this technique in my next post in March.
