Always Remember ~ Mixed Media Mojo Challenge

strongerrootsmaureenplut

Good morning friends!  I received a sweet message from my Schmoopy (Verve Diva Amber)a few days ago inviting me to play along with the current Mixed Media Mojo Challenge.  Amber is the one I blame/thank for getting me hooked on mixed media!  I’m still only dabbling, but that’s the way things start, right?  The challenge is Fall and embossing paste.

Here’s my main panel after spraying with Dylusions inks, colouring embossing paste with orange ink, and spreading it through the Crafters Workshop “Art Is” stencil.

I pulled out the PTI Mighty Oak stamps set and cover plate.  I love this sentiment!  I took inspiration from Amber’s card for the challenge and added some burlap trim for more texture :)

Ever wonder about mixed media?  Check out the gorgeous samples on the Mixed Media Mojo challenge blog!  I didn’t “get” the big hoopla about embossing paste when I first starting seeing other designers use it, but now I do!  It’s so fun to colour it and then spread it!  Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day :)

Oh this is amazing Moe. Love the mix of colors...and the leaves...with the touch of burlap. Divine. The sentiment is perfect too. Wish you weren't going through a storm right now :(
