Zippy Mixed Media with BoBunny!

Happy Friday to you!

I'm super excited today to share my project with you.  A few of us over at BoBunny have been showcasing our mixed media projects.  I have one to share with you today.

Reach For the Stars and Choose Happiness!

When we received this assignment for a Zip-A-Dee Doodle Mixed Media page, I was happy because I had just purchased my first jar of molding paste!  I knew I wanted to use some masks and put the paste to work and build texture.  

It's also fun to up-cycle and add in a few things that you have already, like cardboard or fibers.  I painted mine with some gesso, then added some dry brushed acrylic paint for accent.  Then I touched the edges of my photo with the paint very gently.

The next photo shows my mistake.  I used a heart mask on an area with some inka gold metallic rub and it turned out way too dark, so I disguised it with a light coat of gesso.  It was a perfect subtle effect. The upside -- the rub worked perfectly on my Kraft Wooden Gear!  

I love that there are truly no mistakes in mixed media.  Add what you like, fix what you don't.  Use staples, glue, paint, fibers, gel, you name it! I experimented with some new products and now have a lot more confidence in using those items for my next projects.

The Zip-A-Dee Doodle collection is really a perfect match for mixed media, it's really fun!
