Mix Media with the Color Wheel

Hello Mix Media Enthusiasts, today we are playing with complementary colors. This month the Mix Media Monthly challenge is all about the color wheel. I have to say I have actually really enjoyed this challenge. It is making me use colors I would not normally pair together, & stick with 2 or 3. I tend to use all the colors all the time!



For my 2nd project this month I went with a mini art journal page. I decided to go with complementary colors yellow & purple. This page is 3x4" & is part of my #the100dayproject which I will talk about in a future post. If you want to see my mini pages I am posting them in Instagram almost everyday.








I hope you hop over to Mix Media Monthly & join in the fun!! You can win a prize!!! As always there is lots of inspiration to be had from my very talented team mates!

Mixed Media Monthly Organizer Book

Hello Inky Fans, I am here with a Mixed Media Monthly Organizer Book using the Passport Die by Eileen Hull. I want a book to carry with me when I go to the local scrapbook store that has a record of paint colors I own. I don't know about you but I am constantly buying the same colors and leaving the fun new ones behind! 



Here is my project for the month of April- wow time flies! I decided to use the Marabu Acrylic Mousse- Pastel Paste from last month. I wanted to see how it played with Dylusions Paints by Ranger. 



Here is the photo inspiration for this months challenge #47 as well as the explanation. I decided to go with split complement colors- so blue with the splits being yellow-orange & red-orange. 



I started by die-cutting my passport pieces using mat board, then scraping the paste through a stencil by RubberMoon. Once that was dry I spritzed the board using Dylusions Spray. 



I painted the raised portions with Dylusions paint & added some stencil work. In hind sight it probably would have been easier to tint the paste & apply it already colored. 



For the spine I added some stamping using paint. I also hit the high points of my stencil image in copper paint to add a little metallic look.



3 signatures were made using ruled paper. Each signature has a cover made with scrapbook paper. I can always add more paper as I build my lists.



I used hair elastics to hold the signatures. They work perfectly & are just the right color! Thanks for joining me today & I hope you join our challenge on Mix Media Monthly this month!

I had the privilege to be on Topflight Stamps 1st design team which ran July to Dec, 2017. I thought it would be appropriate to re-create my 1st project with them. Here is my new mini-art journal, designed for the hop using corrugated cardboard as a substrate.

I followed my tutorial just changing up the colors and stamps. This is my original project back in July, 2017. Love this book & it sits on my window sill so I can add to it any time. You can find the tutorial for this book here.
 


Did you know that darkroom door now has stencils? I used the large version of this one called Polka Dots. With a foam dabber I stenciled paint on my background.


This stamp set is where my front quote came from and the word art was stamped in paint on my covers. The inside of my book was also stamped using the water jar.

 I also used this set called Artist Brushes.Love the details on these stamps, plus the paint swatch looks totally real & is perfect especially when applied using paint!
 

Here is the back of my journal. I love that the words look like graffiti!


Inside front cover. This was stamped with Archival Ink & water colored lightly.


Inside back cover. 



I made 3 signatures filled with white & black card stock, canvas, tags & Gel Press papers. Well that is it for today! I hope you enjoyed the walk through my project. Happy Birthday Topflight!
