Palette icon MIX440 - Stars and Stripes (7/2/21)

Challenge Title: Stars and Stripes
Hostess: dini
Keyword: MIX440
View the gallery for this challenge HERE

Happy Mix-Ability Day! Marilyn found this fun inspiration piece on Pinterest so we decided to run with that this week - please feel free to be inspired however you wish - colors, layers, process, theme!

I've been sitting here figuring out the step-by-step for this piece, even though I'm going to do something different, and I know there are videos that show the process. The blue background went down first, slightly lighter at the bottom - I love how that shows through and in between the stripes.

Marilyn made a mostly-watercolored project, which is below - you can learn more about her process on her blog HERE. I pulled out my card-sized gel press to play, which meant the trees went down first, then splatters and stripes, then the blue, then more trees in ink.

Remember, for your project to truly qualify as mixed media, you need to use at least 2 different types of art media. You can click What is the Mix-Ability Challenge? for a list of supplies you could choose from. Please remember to put in the correct keyword (MIX440) when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos. Then come back to this thread and paste a link to the card in your gallery so we can all ooh and ahhh! Go forth and create!

Super challenge Dina. It works perfect for a patriotic birthday card I needed for my MIL.

Here’s mine: Old Glory in Her Glory by Shirleysgirl at Splitcoaststampers

This idea just kept evolving. I’m happy where it landed.
