Let It Snow

Happy and Creative New Year!

Hope you had a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones and are ready to start the New Year in a  creative way.   
Our January challenge over at Picture This is "Mixed media"!

For those of you unsure of what mixed media is exactly - "Mixed media" tends to refer to a work of visual art that combines various traditionally distinct visual art media—for example, a work on canvas that combines paint, ink, and collage could properly be called a "mixed media" work. The main idea is to mix dry (paper, canvas, textiles) and wet (paints, texture paste, inks) media in one piece of work.

So gather some supplies such as different sorts of papers, inks, stamps, Gesso, texture paste, stencils, 
embellishments, etc…. and create a "MIxed media" project.

Remember that we are not limited to only using paper or only creating scrapbooking projects. If you feel like you'd like to try making a card, canvas or an off the page project - go for it! 
End of the day art is about expanding your horizons and stepping out of ones comfort zone.
Now let's have some FUN!

For my Mixed-media project I started with a photo from when we lived in New Hampshire where it snowed a lot!  Then I gathered all my supplies that were related to snow!   Pattern paper that had a snow theme, wooden snowflakes (that I covered with white heavy gesso and some glitter), "Let it Snow" and Snowflake stamps, and some snowflake elements.  

As you can see, I created a very snowy and wintery layout!

I also got inspired by " The Scrappy Sketches " January Sketch LO Challenge 
(deadline is January 29th).
