I'm trying to get the hang of doing mixed media. It's slowly coming along. Still trying to figure out how gesso, distress ink and paint all work.
I used the challenge at Creative Embellishments to inspire my layout. It requires a circular element and I wanted to use this circle of leaves with this picture. The inspiration picture has falling snow so I decided to put falling leaves in my layout. There were also blue and yellow shades in the picture. So excited to finally be playing along in their challenge!
I'm also playing along at The Paper Girls. Challenge #96 is to include a forest friend. I added the squirrel to my layout.
Paper Issues also has a Mix It Up challenge this month in their Facebook group. I used paint, texture paste and distress ink.
