MIXED MEDIA MONDAY - New Toys and a Give Away!

Okay.. the Give Away is NOT mine but if you love mixed media or art journaling than you definitely want to get in on the drawing for this class give away.

So hop on over to MaritsPaperWorld for your chance to win a spot in this awesome class!

Speaking of Mixed Media, I ordered some things from Oriental Trading last week. I needed a bunch of those mister bottles (like the ones from Ranger). These are exactly like those without the logo and I get 2x as many for the price. So while I was ordering those, I added a few other items I couldn't pass up.

The six boxes in the back hold 6 of the mister bottles. I also ordered 2 pkgs of Washi Tape (Tell me.. does that surprise any of you? LOL) 1 is Travel themed and the other is Sewing theme... and a single roll of Potion Bottles. I already have them labeled and in their forever home. 

I liked this set of Typewriter styled numbers and icons. Now if I just had an alphabet set to match. Will have to keep my eye out..

 And lastly in this picture is a set of purple witch hats. Halloween is coming!

What this picture doesn't show is a set of 'fence' stencils. The first picture shows them all 'punched out':

There are six different fence styles I thought would be interesting in journal pages. But be warned... see all those openings in the fence panels (including the lattice one at the top...) They come still filled in and you need to punch them out. Here is a picture of one in progress of being punched...

I've dropped all those little pieces into a cup. They may become a spatter pattern across a page or two before they are tossed. 

Next week I'll show you another Mixed Media. A couple gals have asked about the ratio of my paint to water in my spray acrylics. I just ordered 30 more empty bottles from Amazon so I could do all of my Folk Art Acrylics now that they are in their forever home. I might even give you a sneak peek of that unit...

Creative Blessings!


  1. Hi Kwlly! The fence stencils look fun! I look forward to seeing what you do with them.

  2. Hi Kelly,

    Finally arrived at you inspirational blog via Stamping Ground.

    I'm the friend for whom Julia made a desperate plea re The Stampendous perfectly clear set ranunculus. You very kindly offered to help with the "hunting for" section at Splitcoast stampers, and I'd like to tkae you up on that.

    Pleas mail me at

    Thank you so much in advance,


  3. Looks like a lot of fun things to play with. I'll have to look into those misters. We used a Ranger one at our Copic's Workshop this weekend and we all thought that they should have given us one as a gift. Hugs, Maggie
