Hi everyone, today is a mixed media page how to... using up your excess inks or paint is not just economical, it can save time too. Having a mini journal to play in can give you inspiration to create... Bee Crafty have some great journals...

How To:

If you don't have a 'mop up' piece create a background by mopping up or as Bev says "smoosh", your piece of paper through some distress inks, drying in between layers with a heat gun. (pic 1)

Ink the mandala in the strongest colour.. lightly spritz with water & lay on to page. Use a paper towel over the top to take up the excess moisture, dry. (pic 2)

Place brick stencil onto page, randomly spread some crackle paint or paste through (pic 3) leave to dry.

Stamp Daisy (Versafine Clair) onto a separate piece of paper, use a clear embossing powder over the top, heat & cool. Colour using Distress Oxides/ Intense watercolour pencils or paint, dry & then cut out.

When bricks / paint are dry, using a watercolour pencil (or watercolour paint, distress crayon, scribble stick) draw in the 'grout' add water & let it 'run' in between, mopping up excess as you go. ( pic 5)

Stamp freehand (without a block) the Random Numbers, then stamp (using a block) 'DAISY' word in Versafine Clair, blot & dry (saves smudges), then adhere cut out daisy, some splatters of white & it's done! (pic 5 )
