Well, I can really understand why so many scrappers are getting into this mixed media art. I really liked jumping in and getting my hands covered in gesso, inks, stamps and paint. But I first watched a youtube video by livartnow. I wouldn't want to have had to guess at what comes first with the design, the chicken or the egg. She's good though.. I'm so happy I stumbled into her videos. So this is my first crack at mixed media. I decided to try the layered tile look, which starts with messing up a few pieces of chipboard with various layers of paper, washi tape, stickers and the kitchen sink and then cutting them into pieces for the cover assembly. You gotta try this. But not right after you have your nails manicured. Just saying. And why is it that I can never get the dyes out of my fingernails, regardless of the large amount of time I spend in dishwater and household cleaners, but if I bother to paint my nails they chip the minute they hit the water? Sigh. Oh, never mind. That's for a whole different life. Hope you try this, it's so much fun!
