The theme for this month is
'Mixed Media' - Anything Goes...
This means we would like to see anything that you have used Mixed Media techniques on. This is a perfect chance to get all inky, painty and very messy if you wish. Or you can alter and decorate something using gorgeous papers.

I absolutely loved creating this Mixed Media project. The printer tray is so easy to decorate. I used the gorgeous papers to decorate the sections, crackle paint for the panels of the frames, and the ornate corners. I then finished the look with Distress Inks and Gilding Wax. Finally adding lot's of pretty embellishments.
