The Memory Nest Make it Monday 29

Another new challenge is up at , this time the challenge is based around one of my specialities, Mixed media.

yes it sounds daunting but its really simple and all you need to do is take some gesso or white acrylic paint and cover a large area of your layout with it and wait for it to dry. Then you can add any type of inks, paints and stamped images you want. just go wild and unleash the creativity.

 I used a lot of masks on this one, with these you can either cover them over with modelling paste to get a raised pattern or use inks over them. Just make sure you hold them close to the page to prevent bleeding.
                              I used different paints on this part and toned them in with gesso.

This is what the modelling paste looks like if used on a mask and left to dry. If you use a heat gun on it then it goes puffy.

I cut the title out of Kraft card and used a stencil mask to dab ink on to the letters.

Now its your turn to play along and thanks for visiting
