"Dream" Layout: January MMM Kit

Hello everyone :).

I'm here with you today with one more look at our 
January Magnifique Mixed Media Kit from C'est Magnifique

When it comes to mixed media, you don't always have to go big and bold- even if the colors are as rich and beautiful as the ones in this kit. I chose to dilute the color of the "Raspberry Wine" Silks with some gesso to create the perfect purple/pink shade subtly seen beneath my masked areas. 

Using a wide spatula, I scraped the Silks vertically, up and down my page. 

I then diluted the "African Jade" Silks {again with gesso} and applied just a small amount over the "Raspberry Wine" areas, just as a highlight {seen bottom left}. I wanted to maintain a soft, dreamy feel to my layout.

The other half of my Blue Fern Studios "Ruth's Doily" {leftover from my canvas project} can be seen beneath my photo.

One last look at the January MMM Kit:

Don't miss out on the next one {to be revealed in just a few days!}, see how to Join {HERE}.

Have a great weekend!
