Mixed Media tutorial

If you're curious about starting with Mixed Media stamping, but the very term frightens you, take a peek over at the Flourishes Blog! I have the fun opportunity to host "Create With Me Monday" today with a mixed media tutorial. I've shared some simplified theory, tips and ideas in a tutorial to get you started. Here's the card I made as I used the steps and added layers of color to a plain white background.

The floral stamp I used is from the newly released Spring Blossoms set, with accents from the Sweet Peas, Siberian Iris, and On the Porch sets.

Along the same lines, there's an interesting discussion thread in the Mix-Ability Challenge forum called "Does mixed media have to be messy?" I'd love to hear your thoughts, especially if this is one aspect of mixed media that has kept you away so far.

Thanks for stopping by!
