Bold Colours – June Challenge at Mixed Up Mag

Bold Colours
is the theme for June on the Mixed Up Magazine blog!


For my piece this month I’ve used Distress Oxides, Distress inks and Archival ink to make this bright and bold card as inspiration for you.


I thought that the bold colour would be a great contrast to the vintage paper doll cut-out from Tim Holtz.
The background is full of stamping because that is what I love to do along with playing with different inks.


Distress inks and oxides work so well together.


This challenge is open to anyone, anywhere in the world!

HOW TO PLAY:
Create a piece of work using the theme BOLD COLOUR– your piece must be mixed media.

This challenge is open to everyone – newbies and international entries are very welcome.

Winners will be announced in the Mixed Up Mag Mixer Group (facebook) – so you might want to consider joining us there!  It’s a friendly place to be with loads of encouragement and inspiration.

Please pop on over to the Mixed Up Media blog to see the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the team.
There is so much you can do with texture!

Thank you so much for looking.

Happy Stamping!

 

Texture – Mixed Up Media May Challenge

 

Welcome to our first Make It Mixed Media Challenge!  Get messy with us and create mixed media marvels – you could even win a prize! The prize winner will be chosen at random, to give players of all experience levels an equal chance. The Design Team will also choose our favourite Project of the Month.


|The chance to win something for getting messy makes me smile!

This month’s theme is: TEXTURE
and runs until the end of May.
This challenge is open to anyone, anywhere in the world!

I’m very excited to show you my first piece as part of the Design Team at Mixed Up Media.


This is a canvas that I made using modeling paste, stencils and some drywall tape.


You can use stamps on tissue paper to add to any piece you make.  It moulds it’s way around any textured surface and is heaps of fun to do.  And if it crumples a bit, then that is even better.
