Happy Friday!! There's a new Mix-Ability Challenge posted today in the challenge forum at SplitCoastStampers! The challenge is called Happy Little Clouds (Mix49), hosted by Lydia. For my project, I chose to create a snowy woodland scene inspired by one evening of beautiful pink light we had while I was visiting Mom and Dad over Christmas.
I started by painting a background layer of heavy watercolor paper with a wash of pink and lavender inks. Then, using the topic for the challenge, with my finger I dabbed a few white "clouds" to the scene using white acrylic paint.
I used various Impression Obsession die cuts I made out of heavy watercolor paper to create the scene, as if looking out the window of Mom and Dad's log home. They live in a beautiful small valley, abundant with wildlife all year long. It is always great fun to watch the deer, turkeys, and wild birds in the front yard, in every season.
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. Join us, won't you!?
