Happy Holly-Day Monday. I hope your week is off to a good start!!! Today is my day to show you some inspiration over at the Loves Rubberstamps Inspiration Blog. Mixed media has always fascinated me. It's not really my style but I used to do a lot of it in Grade School, lol. I have been inspired by others incorporating their mixed media into their cute and whimsical styles, so I thought I would have a go at it.

For the clouds, I used a Cloud Stencil. I used a Gelatos Blue and mixed in some Light Modeling Paste. I used the the tools from the mix and match Gelatos Tool Set.
And since I had ALL those Gelato Colors out:
I decided to see if I could water color the images I used.
And I did. Again, I colored onto my non-stick sheet, used an old cheap paint brush and added drops of water to the colors and mixed with the same brush. For darker areas, I dabbed the brush in water, tipped some of the water off and then picked up the color off the sheet and applied it to the image. It was so fun and easy. As you can see, I decided to change the color of the basket after I snapped this picture.
From the Gelatos mixed set above, you can see that there is a couple sponges. I took a sponge and picked up some of the Gelato and water mixture and then sponged the designer paper and the white paper around the edges to add some dimension.
I had a lot of fun with this one! I will be breaking out the Gelatos again and again. I would like to add some more mediums to stash. Laura has a few in her store that I am going to be picking up soon.
Just to name a few. Here are the Faber-Castell products that she carries.
Thanks for checking in on me.
