Having been a long-time member and Dirty Dozen alumni for SplitCoastStampers (a popular online stamping community group), I was thrilled to join the Mix-Ability Challenge hostess team. My first hosted challenge was posted last Friday - somehow my blog post about it failed to upload. So here I am today, sharing the news! And even though the challenge was posted last week, you can still participate!
The idea behind the Mix-Ability Challenge is to make mixed media simple and approachable, and to let you experiment using things you already have. Each Friday a new challenge is hosted, but there is no time limit, so you can participate whenever you'd like on each challenge.
My challenge (MIX40) is called Stick it to me, darling! You are to use a sticky medium to adhere glitter to your project. Use a liquid, spray, or tape adhesive, and of course GLITTER!! For my project, I chose to use a chipboard frame from Crafty Secrets. I used Ranger Crackle Accents as the liquid adhesive to hold my dry stickles glitter in place. The result was a perfectly glittered frame I could use on my card.
I hope you check out the Mix-Ability Challenge forum on SplitCoastStampers! There's still time to participate in my challenge. If you're new to the idea of mixed media, and want to see about giving it a try, learning more, and have fun in the process, I encourage you to keep an eye on each Friday challenge. I am excited to be part of the group, and sharing some "mixy" projects with you!
