The Memory Nest Kellie's Sketch Challenge April

Its challenge time and that means there is another sketch available this week. the twist for this challenge is to do something which is out of your comfort zone. so i chose to use mixed media elements on my layout.

i tend to avoid mixed media as i usually end up with a huge mess and cant seem to get the cool effects i've seen on the other blogs.  Practice makes perfect so i will keep trying until it works.

i used modeling paste with a mask to add texture to my layout only it went every where but the page. my first attempt involved using paint but it didn't show up so i covered it with misting spray first which added a splatter effect to the page.

When using misting sprays its a good idea to cover up everything you don't want covered in ink.

save the negatives from your alphabet stickers and cut them out for extra letters.
