Paper Girls - Mixed Media

A new challenge begins today at The Paper Girls Challenge Blog.  The theme is Mixed Media, so have fun with this one!

I've got several cool mixed media tools like gelatos, stencils, mists and gesso in my stash, but I honestly don't break them out very often.

To create my card, I first misted some watercolor paper with Mister Huey's mist (color: Sunset). I applied quite a bit and then used a paint brush to spread the color over the whole sheet.  After it dried, I used a couple of Teresa Collins stencils and Faber-Castell whipped spackle to create the white sentiment and hearts. After this layered dried I felt like I needed to add something so got out my Mister Huey's Opaque White mist. I had intended to just add some splatters of white but I accidentally spilled a bunch of mist right on top of my creation! I saw that the white was blending nicely with the color already on there, so got out a paintbrush and started to spread the white around until I achieved the look I wanted. I love how it turned out, even better than my original idea of adding splatters!

Get messy and join in on our challenge, won't you?
