I don't think I've ever managed an entry into 4 challenges at once before, but here I go!
This blog post contains my layout with my entry into the following challenges!!
This challenge is a sketch based challenge! I finished my entry into the challenge for sketch #83 a few hours earlier, and I'm really taking a liking to their sketches! I didn't rotate this sketch however!
Although a relatively new challenge series, I figured with my mixed media kick in high gear, I would enter this layout into this challenge as well. We were required to use stencils and pastes! I went ahead and used the Tim Holtz splatter stencil and mixed some modeling paste with some acrylic paint in order to give me coloured paste to use with the stencil!
The theme for the challenge over at Scrap It Girl, was arrows and #'s. Both of which I have on my layout, so I thought it worked well as an entry into this challenge. :)
I think this may have been my first time using an image as my inspiration in addition to a sketch. The image was super cute and as soon as I saw it, I thought primaries (i.e. primary colours). That's exactly why I chose to lay the layers of splatter down the way I did on a neutral background page.
The inspiration photo was:
And now, after all of the challenge introductions, here is my layout!
I think one of the reasons I so love the mixed media vibe, is that I'm using things I wouldn't use frequently enough otherwise. :)
For example, on this layout alone, I used modeling paste, acrylic paint, a stencil, Silks shimmer paints, splattering techniques, ripped layered papers and just so much *stuff*. But not TOO much so that I can't put my layout in a page protector, but enough to give the page some dimension. I'm really digging it!!
Thanks so much for dropping by!!!
