Good evening everyone. Sandra here with my DT post for Mixed Media Warriors.
I have been playing with the new Ranger Oxide inks. There are lots of demonstrations on You Tube and I am still learning and getting used to them.

Meanwhile I have made the following page in my art journal.

I was surprised and pleased by the vibrancy of the colours, and how easily they blended together.

I blended the colours together directly onto the page using a foam blender. With a spot stencil and damask stencil I added some darker and white tones.

Some details have been stamped in black and white ink using Paper Artsy stamps. There is also some stamping using Paper Artsy metallic glaze. This is quite hard to pick up on the camera.

I added some paper flowers and a butterfly laid over some white gauze for dimension.
The pages are framed with a doodled border and edged with some darker distress ink.

Finally I splashed some watered down Titanium White Deco Arte fluid acrylic randomly over the pages, and into the flower centres.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy the spring-like colours from my art journal.

Please keep sharing your projects here and on our Facebook page. We always love to see what you are working on.
Until next time . . . . . .

 Hi everyone, Melissa here with a page for my Mixed Media Warrior design team post. I have used a photo of my son and his fiance taken on New Year's Eve.

To make this page I glued a 12 x 12 piece of watercolor paper to a piece of heavy cardboard using mod podge.  I wanted to make a nice solid base that would stay flat. I put a piece of gauze on with heavy gesso. I painted a watercolor paper mat with LSG and put the photo on top. Using glossy accents I applied flowers and butterflies.

I added layers of LSG and more texture, including 7 Dots stickers, micro beads,seed beads,pearls, stickers, some metal corner stickers by Martha Stewart,jump rings, rhinestones, and bling.I added two Tim Holtz chipboard hearts that I painted blue over white gesso, and topped with a thick coat of Ranger clear crackle; I let them dry overnight.  I brushed on white gesso on all the embellishments as a base for more color. You can see a lot of gold paint,it's acrylic by Firefly. It's pretty thick, and easy to dry brush on raised up parts.   The Family chipboard is wood, I can't remember what brand it is.  

To create a balance of color between the photo and background, I needed to put in some dark shades. I used a bark Inktense watercolor pencil, some coffee Tattered Angels mist, and a black watercolor crayon.  I had started off with just a purple blue mix of LSS, Blue Bachelor Button, and Sweet Violet Purple Blue. 

Towards the end of the project I added a mix of LSG teal, Bachelor Button Blue and a lot of water; I brushed it on several areas. The gold chain and gold with rhinestone heart are from Hobby Lobby, and the pear shaped blue rhinestone I think is from Michaels. On top of the 7 Dots sticker I used Tim Holtz blue distress glitter. I glued on champagne metal glitter by Stampendous on the background in a few areas.

Thank you so much for looking, and have a great day!
