There is a challenge, a cheat and a life changing art method in this post today. I don't know where to begin!
Art method: I have been creating a giant taboo with my acrylic paints. I had NO IDEA I was tearing apart my projects in the process of laying down my paint. I'm mortified! I'm not sure the exact search I started on about acrylic, but when I came to "Worst Mistake Acrylic Painters Make" my search ended and I went out and bought some new supplies.
I have mediums sitting next to my painting case and I'll never thin them wrongly again. Whew! I think they like me again.
A Challenge. I'm hosting the MIx-Ability challenge this next week! Check out the challenge below!
A Cheat. Stampendous has these amazing collage stamps. They have new ones almost every release. It's incredibly easy to create mixed media style cards in minutes when you want some creativity in a short amount of time.
My card uses Eiffel Collage Cling Stamp from the April 2014 Release. There are also some great samples that were posted this week by my Stampendous teammates using more of the collage stamps from Stampendous.
