Morning Sunshine!

Good morning!! So sorry to be late . . . ahhhhh, my life lately!  It's going to be an absolutely crazy, non-stop week but that's good right?  No chance of boredom! :)

Today I wanted to show you that you can do mixed media (which face it, is really popular now and spilling into everything!) in a CAS (clean and simple) style!  When I first started seeing and hearing about mixed media I resisted - after all, I thought it was all grunge and sponge and  that just isn't me.  But, then I started paying more attention, looking at other mixed media artists and finding out that it's really all about combining things you love and using anything that inspires you!

I used some of the new Pink Paislee She Art products that are in the eP store.  This is a line of products designed by Christy Tomlinson - love her style!

I used the new Vintage Doily Mask (which will be in the store tomorrow- heehee, you're getting a sneak peek!), it's a big, beautiful mask that will go with everything!!  I simply layed the mask over my paper and sprayed it with Pure Sunshine  baby (Ink Spray that is)!  Love it!

I then pulled out the new Border Rub-ons from the same Pink Paislee She Art line and added a simple black line down one side for a bit of contrast and grounding. Since the sentiment is black it all seems to flow.  I added 2 stacked buttons tied with some Lemondrop Twine and a bit of bling (why now?!) - done!

There you have it, mixed media a la CAS style!  Wouldn't this be so pretty do with all different colors of ink sprays?! Oooooh, I might have to shop for more colors, think pretty chartreuse green, bright pink, turquoise . . . FUN!!  Have a great day my friends!
