CMC Mixed Media Challenge and some news

Happy Saturday everyone. Let me start with my news first, I am now part of the CMC Mixed Media DT, yes, me and mixed media, can you believe it. I thought this was a great way to learn and grow with my mixed media items that have been sitting and collecting dust lol. We have a fabulous team headed by Marti Wills. My DT mates are Tina and Nadja and they do some pretty awesome projects. Now on to the challenge, it is to use acrylic paint somewhere on your project. I do hope you will stop by and check out the challenge and the awesome DT projects.

I cannot tell how much fun it was to step out side of my box (Copics) and to get all messy with the paints. Please stop by and check out the challenge at CMC, you will enjoy it. Now, if you are a beginner like me, Marti is offering Mixed Media classes and you can find all the info here. I am taking a couple and I cannot tell you how much I am learning.
