Winner! and a Mixed Media Challenge #1

First of all, as promised, I picked a winner today from my blog hop last week. Here it is:

That means the winner is Nicole Doiran!  Congrats! I will be in touch soon.


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. Sometimes you can be too messy (like I hate all of the smudges on here, they were not intentional). 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.

This is AMAZING! I haven't tried a mixed media scrapbook page yet but based on the huge number of goofs on my canvas that I covered up I don't know if I am ready yet! It would proabably end up being a mess and I wouldn't want to show it! But when I get more skilled at it I want to - your is beautiful! Wonderful photo!!!
