I'm not sure when I first fell in love with mixed media journalling, 2 maybe 3 years ago, I never had the confidence to attempt it, thinking I wouldn't be good enough.
After much reading and you tube watching on the subject, I realised that of course I was good enough as there is no right or wrong way to do this.
Yesterday I had a slight change of plan and instead of starting my journal, I decided to have a play on canvas first.
I feel a new addiction coming on, this was so much fun and even though there's always room for improvement and I have lots of techniques to learn, I was very pleased with my first attempt..........................................
I really enjoyed playing around with different paint techniques and can't wait to start playing again later!
Things I learnt.....................................
I loved playing with my stamps, something I've never really 'GOT' before
I wasn't so keen on misting sprays, maybe they'll grow on Me
I will need Gesso
I am totally in love with mod podge
The beauty of mixed media is that although you need a few supplies you can use items lying around the house,a real bonus if you ask Me as starting a new craft/hobby can become very expensive.
I think I'm going to be a Miss Goody two shoes, get in there early and use this as Januarys Monthly Make!
I came across a 'New to Me' blog this morning with a challenge I'm quite keen to take on.
Do I really need another challenge?
Yes, I think I do as this one is such a great idea, take a look here.
