MMW#23: Anything Mixed Media Goes - with optional twist

Hello everyone! 

I hope you enjoyed the last challenge and are looking forward to the next one! Last time it was easy for you as you could enter any mixed media project. There are so many amazing entries we will need to take a few days to decide on our winner and our Fab 3. I will be back next week to reveal the lucky winners. 

The brand new team are exited to be bringing you their very first inspiration this month and you are in for a real treat! This month, you can once again enter anything you like, but we also have a Mood Board as an optional twist. We would really like to see how you would interpret it. 

The wonderful makes from my lovely DT ladies are below so enjoy! 

On the cover of my notebook I wanted to portray the horse in the frosty morning forest. Crystal morning, frosty air. Soon the sun comes out and the frost a starts to melt.

I really enjoy creating abstract mixed media art. I had fun with PaperArtsy Grunge paste, Prima Heavy Gesso, Lindy's sprays, Decoart Acrylic spray, some  inks and more... 

Hi Mixed Media World's friends! Irena here. This is my first inspirational post for Mixed Media World.
I decided to create a 20x60 canvas "A promise for Spring". I found places for all pieces of the Mood board while having lots of fun.

March is a fickle month: either more Winter or, hopefully, Spring is about to appear. My altered bottle, Ice Melt, celebrates the coming of Spring. I incorporated the theme and colors in the moodboard - melting ice, renewal, blue sky and sunlight. So, in the spirit of renewal, an orange Halloween glass bottle is reborn via gesso, crackle paste, modeling paste, spray mists, old lace, handmade flowers and embellishments!

I looove our March moodboard! Its colour scheme resembles a lot the colours of early Spring behind my window. I created two tags inspired by several elements from our moodboard - the colour scheme, the red berries and even the horse :)

I think on my notebook is still a winter. You can find there remnants of ice and frozen earth. But also a few flowers and a little fairy sitting and waiting patiently for spring.
I chose for my cover a piece of cotton fabric in blue-gray color and I started with chipboard die cuts, skeleton leafs and crackle paste to create a texture. Next I added all embellishments and covered them with a white gesso. After all the layers have dried, I painted everything with mists and Opal Magic acrylic paints.

Live Love Laugh : Winter canvas
I have created a winter canvas for March challenge . "If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant" so enjoy this winter in this moment , enjoy this moment to it fullest !!
I have used lots of Lindy's Spray Mist ,Snowflake paste, art stones and Dusty Attic chipboard !!

I prepared a mixed media canvas for the mood board of March. I rarely use red colour, this is my very first scrapbook creation with this colour. 
The inspiration board is full of winter style pictures, but I tried to make something without referencing any of the seasons. It is all about white, black and red.


Wow! I mean,... wow! I don't know about you, but I'm totally in love with ALL of these and the DT ladies totally smashed it! I am now very excited to see what you will come up with and how you will interpret the mood board. 

Good luck with you entry! You could win 3 gorgeous images from the Old Vintage Shop on Etsy! They are great for collages and all sorts of mixed media fun so I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! 


Have fun with the challenge and stay creating! Big crafty hugs.. 

Ingrid and the wonderful DT Ladies! xxx
