Well, thanks to a tiny stroke of pure luck, I'm starting to branch out and incorporate Mixed Media into my layouts (and cards). Through a friend of a friend (twice removed, lol), I went to my very first Retreat in February, and at that Retreat we were treated to a mixed media layout demonstration by a wonderful lady by the name of Beck Beattie ("Beck BT" to those in the know!).
I have since been to another of Beck's classes, and the layout below is the result of attending that class (please excuse the poor photography and lack of editing; photography I have no excuse for, but the editing is because I'm not able to access my computer at the moment):
Let me just add a little 'aside' here: Here is a photo of what arrived in my happy mail this morning, courtesy of an awesomely lucky ebay purchase:
A 'bulk lot of 72' assorted Twinkling H2O's!!! EEEEEK!!!
Anyway, whilst I am certainly a long way from making magnificent, multi-layered, multi-faceted creations, I am definitely starting to have a go with mixed media, embracing the warp (lol, Beck!) and enjoying getting messy with it!
Thanks for stopping by!
