Devil's Island - Clique Into Color Mixed Media Challenge

Hello blogging friends.

All weekend Clique Kits is hosting a Clique into Color Online Crop with lots of challenges, LOTS of PRIZES, and lots of fun going on!! Anyone can participate too. The Clique into Color kit sold out so fast! It features the Bella Blvd Just Add Color collection. Here is the schedule ...

Look for the Clique Kits Facebook Event Page if you would like to participate. You have until Aug 21st to complete the challenges. Post your entry under the appropriate challenge post on the facebook event page. I am hosting the 5pm challenge today - Mixed Media. What exactly is mixed media?

the use of a variety of media in a work of art.

My challenge to you - incorporate something more than paper on a project. You can use paints, inks, stamps, chalks, fibers, cardboard, chipboard, wood veneers, glitter glass, beads..... you get the picture.

Here is some inspiration ....

Hubby and I recently spent some time in the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior. BEAUTIFUL!!!! It was truly relaxing as for the most part, we had no cell signals. That meant, no interruptions from our bosses!! (and yes, both our bosses were trying to get in touch with us, lol). 

But enough about us... here are some more detailed shots of my layout ...

I tore a piece of cardboard and glued it to my background paper. I painted the cardboard and some of my background paper with gesso. When it was dry I added acrylic paint and some ink splashes. I also glued some glitter glass in there. The anchor wood veneer was finished with some white crackle paint and then inked. The fish net was my hubby's.... ssshhhhhh.

The wood veneers and chipboard compass are from Creative Embellishments. I LOVE their stuff!
I used my Clique into Color kit plus a few items from past Clique Kits. Even the cardboard I used came from the box my Clique Kit was mailed in, lol. 

I am linking up to the Scrap Around the World August challenge. Here is the mood board this month...
