Blog Giveaway - Mixed Media Question

I'm wanting to expand my use of Mixed Media Techniques in my card making.  I started with Shrink Plastic and Alcohol Inks.  Check this post for how to.

Please answer this question: 

What mixed media techniques will you use or try this year?

I will pick 2 people randomly from those who leave a comment with a profile on this post. Anonymous comments will not be considered.  I will make the selections on February 20th, 2015.
I have the calendars below to give away.

I'm looking forward to reading what you are working on.

I did a bit of research on-line.
Alcohol ink on hard surfaces        Beeswax Collages                    Shrink Plastic accents             Packing Tape Transfers                Air Drying Clay                        Start an Art Journal
Mono Printing                              Sewing Machine Stitching        Using Fabric                                 Paste in a Stencil

Here are some sites which provide information on Mixed Media Techniques if you need some inspiration.


  1. I love the look of handmade flowers and they are a beautiful addition to a mixed media card. There are many tutorials on Youtube and I drool over watching them. I have difficulty making them because of arthritis in my hands but I do love the look of them.

  2. I'm enjoying the art journalling process incorporating torn book pages, Gelli Plate prints on deli paper, acrylic finger painting and drawing/doodling and writing with Stabilo art pencils and paint pens. Here's a link to one of many short videos by Rae Missigman who does quick and easy journal pages. http://rae-missigman.squarespace.com/blog/2015/1/20/15-minutes-of-mixed-media. She is also running the Document Life Project 2015 again this year with other talented ladies.
    I would love to win one of your awesome nature calendars. Thanks for the opportunity.

  3. I made my own hot glue stencils!
    They work really well with ink sprays!!
