Crafty Pad Challenge..6

Hi Folks.....my second week as guest designer on "The Crafty Pad" and the challenge this week is

"MIXED MEDIA"


I will be totally honest....this one scared the pants off me but a challenge is a challenge.....the problem was I didn't have a clue what Mixed Media was.....so I Googled it and that wasn't much help......looked it up on Wikipaedia....no joy there either....so I got in touch with my bloggy bud and fellow team mate Dawn.....who gave me some helpful blogs to look at.   Thanks for that Dawn but I am not entirely convinced that Mixed Media is my style.....so please forgive me all you experts out there....I tried but whether I have succeeded or not is another matter......I fear the answer would be NOT!!!!



 
The adhesive stones were actually crystal but I coloured them with a permanent marker as I didn't have enough lilac and the mesh was actually pink.....so I dabbed it with a Versamark pad and embossed it
with Metal Magic Gold.
Paper: Crafty Individuals..Background Papers Book 1
Image: The Crafty Pad....."Faith Sure:
Flowers: Poppicrafts
Mesh, button and bling from my stash
Embossing: Debbi Moore...Metal Magic...Gold
Really looking forward to seeing what you all create this week......I may pick up some hints and tips on how to do Mixed Media.....be sure to pop on over tomorrow for the Big Blog Candy Feast Give-Away No 6 (the biggie)  .....Hugs Kath xxxxx
