Mixed Media - two kinds of paint

There's a new Mix-Ability challenge up over at Splitcoaststampers! Jeanne's challenging us to use two kinds of paint on our projects.

I grabbed a great deal from Crafter's Companion a few months back when they had a holiday sale - they had several of their bundle deals for a further discount, and I fell in love with these Flower Fairies.

 They're fun to color, so I did a few (I'll share the others later), using Shinhan Premium Watercolors. I added deeper shading with Polychromos Pencils and highlights with a Montana Extra-Fine white acrylic marker. Love that thing.

I used Lumiere Acrylic Paints on the wings - even watered down, they have an amazing shimmer to them. I just got a few more colors and can't wait to play with them.

Hope you'll join us for the challenge this week!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. WOW!
    This is AMAZING, Dina!
    I love the depth you achieved with the different mediums!

  2. I like the added depth that pencil gives after watercoloring or even using alcohol markers. This is a lovely piece of work.

  3. Dina, this is beautiful. Those garden fairies have been on my wish list for awhile. I love what you did with the colors for the background.Fabulous!!!!

  4. Looks like you stamped with a reddish brown? Love your paint mix, too!

  5. WOW! You have some mad artistic talent going on! I hope this jewel goes to someone special who appreciates your artwork! My address is 3205....!

  6. Oh my, oh my, what a stunning piece of art. Your painting and colouring is absolutely breathtaking!

  7. Absolutely gorgeous Dina!!

    Take care and STAY POSITIVE!

  8. Dina, I can't take my eyes off this. The more I look, the more I see. It's completely mesmerizing. I love what you do and however you do it!
