Singing in the Rain - Mixed Media

Hello! Lisa here with something completely different and new to me... mixed media art! I always admire Mixed Media Art, and I sure do love getting messy, so I decided with this weeks challenge being anything but a card I would go for it...

Supplies Used:

I started by applying ModgePodge to watercolor cardstock. I then tore and adhered various tissue type paper.  I then went over all of that with more ModgePodge.  Next I applied Gesso with my finger and rubbed over the entire panel.  Then it was time for some waterpaiting fun with my peerless transparent watercolors.  I stamped my umbrella with a waterproof ink and let dry.  I hand wrote my sentiment and went back to color in my umbrella.  Finally I added some splats of distress spray stain and some glastique gloss for a raindrop effect.

I absolutely love how this turned out and I am so proud of myself for finally taking the plunge and creating something new.

Happy Crafting!
