Mixed Media Challenge-- by Keren Tamir

Its my turn to host this month's challenge at Berry71Bleu.

I really wanted to make a challenge about something I love to use in my layouts which is lots of fun Mixed Media Techniques.

I call this challenge:

Come join us on the Berry71Bleu blog for some messy fun!!

Here is my layout using lots of yummy Prima products from the Zephyr Collection.

This is a picture of my daughter searching for minnows in the lake with a net.

I don't know if you remember my turquoise layout from 2 weeks ago. I made it for another blog and it had lots of drips down the page. Well to make that layout I had to use a piece of cardboard to protect my floor. I misted the chipboard and let the drips fall on that piece of cardboard. After I finished my other layout, I looked at my cardboard piece and it looked fantastic. It had masked patterns all over in both turquoise and white. I decided to save it as and used it here as a background. We truly shouldn't throw anything away. Look how cool this background is with all the drips and mists. 

check out my blog here to see the other layout I'm mentioning.

The Winner of this month's challenge (as chosen by the Design Team) will win a$35 Gift Certificate from Zeus & Zoe Etsy Shop

And will be invited to participate in our challenge next month as a Guest Designer

We also have a random draw winner. This person will receive this prize from Zeus & Zoe Etsy Shop
