MIX538 Thoroughly Modern Art!

I'm the host of this week's MIX-Ability mixed media challenge at Splitcoast and I'd love it if you joined me because it's an inspiration challenge from one of my favorite sources - modern art!

I studied a lot of art history in college, and it informs so much of my own art practice now that I love to tie it into challenges I host. 

My squirrel godmother sent me some Distress Crayons this week, which I had never tried before, and I used them with this ultra modern bird stencil and sentiment strip. I did some doodling after the technique to add some whimsy. 

The stencil that inspired the challenge though is this woman one. I love this so much. After doing the same technique as on the bird, I added a little texture around the image, shaded with colored pencils and added another sentiment strip

If you play along with the challenge, be sure and tag Splitcoast and use hashtag #MIX538.

I'll be back tomorrow with a SUPER fun and easy die cut card.
