Our Mixed Media Moods - October "Fall" Canvas

What is "Our Mixed Media Moods"?:
Every month, DeeDee Catron and I use a mood board created by one of us to inspire projects that we post tutorials for on our Youtube channels. We also encourage people to create their own projects and link up to DeeDee's blog. This month we have an extra special guest creating with is; Aaron from Imperfect Impulses. He graciously agreed to create using our mood board and his project is not to be missed! 

***Links to Aaron & DeeDee's videos and blogs will all be listed at the end of this post***
We also have a Facebook Group and love if you joined us there!

 Here is this month's Mood Board created by DeeDee:

Here is my project. Inspired by the fall colors, the spooky tree and those adorable pumpkins!

Art Journal Page - "Take A Risk"

Here is a spread in my mini art journal:
(To see exactly how it's made check out the process video at the end of this post!)


 The background is a direct inspiration from Stephanie Papin. I have been watching her Youtube Channel and I just had to try out some of her techniques because her pages come out amazing.

Art Journal Page - - Glass Bead Gel + Gold Mica Flakes = True Love

I was painting the other day and suddenly I thought, "What if I use Glass Bead Gel and Gold Mica Flakes together?" So, I tried it out and man oh man! Is the result a shimmery, shiny, glorious mess of texture.

Here is an art journal page I made using this mixture thru a Donna Downey Floral Stencil.









Thanks so much for looking!

Altered Box for Our Mixed Media Moods

It's that time again! The collab between DeeDee Catron and myself where we create projects using a mood board.

Here is this month's mood board:


I used a lot of elements from the mood board in my project; the typewriter, the greens, the vintage papers, the keys and the doilies.




You can join in, too. Just create a project using any element (s) from the mood board and link up to DeeDee's Blog!
