After several false starts - I pushed everything off my work table and started again. The hardest thing for me is to wait for the different mediums to dry - as I usually only have a little time for stamping/crafting between work, church and keeping up the garden! I need to learn to set aside more small pieces of time so the layers can dry!
For this week - the colors to use were yellow, pink and peach.
So - starting with a piece of colored card stock and adding one element at a time I finally created this mixed media piece. I used acrylic paint and Walnut Ink spray for my two media elements.
I brushed pink acrylic paint over the peachy card stock, then added the dots using bubble wrap with yellow acrylic paint. I stamped the grid in the corner with black ink as well as the sentiments. I die cut the Keep Calm stampings with Labels 20 Nestabilities and sponged it before taking it out of the die. Then I sprayed the whole thing with Cherry blossom Walnut Ink.

I think with each project, this Mixed Media craft will come easier to me - and until I find 'my' style - I will just KEEP CALM AND CRAFT ON!
