And, it has been awhile since I made something "just for me". I ran across this challenge entry on Mona's blog for A Mixed Media Challenge and was inspired. Here are the colors:
As I was making this layout, I remembered why I don't do mixed media layouts (but will do art journals, canvases, etc)...it's because even though it feels like you are allowed to be messy with one, it has to be a certain kind of messy.

With an art journal or canvas, you can cover up mistakes or parts you don't like with gesso and start over. Anyways, here's the final result, I think it turned out ok.
