I'll never be a mixed media artist :-(

Do you have materials, or tecniques, you struggle with?

Using mist and masks seems impossible to get a good grip on for me. My papers get all bulky, and I struggle with the design on my papers and cards when I I don't have paper to shuffle around. Why? Do I THINK too much, or try too hard? It's interesting that I have problems with this media, as ink pads, water colors and modelling paste works great for me...

Anyway - I have been playing, and here is the result:


Paper: 7Gypsies. Mask: The Crafters Workshop. Mist: Dylusions. Modelling Past: Panduro
Brown ink: Ranger. Pens: Signo. Chipboard: Imaginarium Designs. Washi & metal: Unknown

My mist is Chocolate brown, but for some reason it turned out more pinkish on my background paper, even if this was in brown shades. So annoying!

Paper: 7Gypsies. Mask: The Crafters Workshop + Clubscrap. Mist: Dylusions. Modelling Past: Panduro. Pens: Signo. Chipboard (used as mask): Imaginarium Designs. Button: Purple Pumpkin. Washi & ribbon: Unknown

Jeg har gitt opp masker og mist på Los for lenge siden, bruker bare ink pads. Har for mye aos rundt og spruten på misten kommer jo overalt noen ganger.

Jeg har kommet fram til at det er mye jeg kan synes er fint hos andre, men som ikke funker for meg. Vintage og veldig artsy er bare ikke min greie. Vintage synes jeg er kjempefint, men jeg får det ikke til. Og ikke liker jeg å slenge ting på i 7-8 lag heller, blir jo umulig å stappe inn i et album etterpå! Og sånn veeeldig artsy... noe av det er mest klin, synes jeg. Føler meg litt som en gamling som sier at ungdommens musikk bare er bråk...

I so hear you Hilde. I've been watching the Creative Jumpstart videos, and trying a thing or two. Been enjoying getting my hands dirty a lot more than I thought I would, lol. I am dying to get my hands on some moulding paste. I really want to try it out with my masks. But the key, I believe is in playing, and experimenting. Too bad we can't do it together, i the same room :)
