Mixed Media Blog Hop

If you are here for the Valentine Decor and Gifts Blog Hop, please see post below

Welcome ladies to the Mixed Media Blog Hop. This hop will not have a long list because it involves a little more work and it is going to broaden everyone's creative by introducing everyone to the world of mixed media along with altered which of course everyone is familiar with.

For those who may not know what it is: Mixed media uses things like -
  • Paints
  • Gesso
  • Gel Mediums
  • Molding Paste
But it is a simple as using glimmer mist on a tag or using game pieces and alcohol inks.Everyones take on it is different and I hope you enjoy all the creations and GOOD LUCK to the winner!!

I altered an acrylic tag for my project. I used some Modge Podge to glue on some red cardstock that i had run through the cuttlebug. I used some white flowers by petaloo and a rosette with a pink heart rhinestone to embellish it. I also used some twine.
