My first mixed media experience

I always love looking at all the mixed media canvasses here and there and am a big fan of Kelly Rae Roberts. And....I have always wanted to try some mixed media myself. I know that one thing I love about scrapping the way I do it is that I have total control of the outcome. Something you have NOT when you do mixed media. Well, maybe you do and I totally have no clue what I am doing am just a girl with no mixed media experience.
I started with speding a small fortune on supplies: Gesso, matte medium, canvasses, brushes. I decided to use my scrapbooking acrylic paints and mists, which I actually have a lot...... (shame shame)

I looked at some of the pins on my Mixed Media Board on Pinterest and decided I should not let myself get overwhelmed with all the techniques and tutorials, I was just going to start. 

Supplies:

Gesso: Liquitex
Matte Medium: Liquitex
Glosse: Ranger
Paint: Making Memories, Delta Ceramcoat
Stickers: Doodlebug, Tumblebeast
Glitterglue: Stickles
Chipboard: Enmarc Crafts
Acetate: Heidi Swapp
Twine: Divine Twine
Misc: Wooden stars, wooden heart, canvas

Non linked manufacturers are not longer existing...... :(









Thanks for coming over and taking the time to look at my work, it is really appreciated.

  3. Nahan Situated on a hill top in the Shiwalik hill range, Nahan is the headquarters of the Sirmaur District. The town lies on an altitude of 932 meters above sea level, it is a well laid picturesque town, with places to visit such as Renuka Lake, Paonta Sahib, Trilokpur temple and the Suketi Fossil Park. The town roads and streets are well planned which keep the traffic easy and most of the pedestrians travel through the narrow fields in order to avoid traffic enabling quick travel. With its pleasant climate all year round and picturesque landscapes, Nahan is a brilliant place for a quick weekend getaway as its one of the nearest hill stations from Delhi.

  4. Most of the people, who live in or nearby the country’s capital, are often plagued by the hustle and bustle of the traffic laden roads and dense population dispersion. Totally exhausted by the busy lifestyle, all a man needs is a getaway where he can escape to a serene place rich with natural beauty , there can be no other place other than a hill station for one to find a calm and soothing environment where he/she can become one with nature and find some peace. We have prepared a list of 15 hill stations suitable for a quick getaway from the concrete jungle to a natural one.
