Experiment with your mediums to create different effects...


Always-mixed-media-card
Whether you are new to the world of mixed media or fully entrenched, you can appreciate how little tweaks in the way you layer your mediums can create different effects. For this card, the base was watercolour paper and the coloured mediums used were watercolours. Since watercolours are not permanent, when I applied light modeling paste with a stencil over it, the watercolours reacted and you can see the "bleedthrough" in the stencilled design.


If I wanted the modeling paste stencilled design to be white, I would use permanent colours on the base instead...like acrylic paint. So experiment with your mediums to create different effects. It's super fun! :)
