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.

Create a piece of work using the theme TEXTURE – 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!

Beach Huts

Beach Huts
Local artist, Kerri Humby, was offering an art class locally
that was about painting beach huts using acrylic paint on canvas.
Making cards is my thing, using stamps…
painting images, with paint and a paint-brush is way out of my comfort zone!
When using a paint brush you use it like a paint brush
– not a pencil
So hard!!! lol
Kerri has a very quirky style which really appealed to me…
and sooo very patient!
She needed to be.
This subject is close to my heart, with lots of fantastic memories at the main beach in town having a row of beach huts.
They have been gone for many years now, though some are still scattered around the country-side, 
painted up in bright colours, looking like new.
This was soooo much fun!
