MUM, January ’23

I love a bit of mixed media every now and then. There are two mixed media inspiration groups I play along with once or twice a month. (More info on those at the bottom of this post!)

To begin the month, on the second Monday the Piece Craft Love facebook group holds a member hop. The project there is called Mix It Up Monday or MUM for short. So let’s dive into this mixed up layout…

We always start with a sketch and then add in our own mixed media bonus. Now this sketch had some messy spatters, but that isn’t enough! I turned all those strips into watercolor strips. You’ll have to look closely as my layout is jam packed and those stripes are hiding behind everything.

I did get in festive splatters and stars too. Bonus mixed media? I made those numbers with alcohol ink techniques back in December for my 2K subbie celebration hop (coming in just 24 hours!).

So. Much. Fun. I’ll have to do a video on that alcohol inking sometime soon as well.

Of course I have a process video for this layout as it was part of the monthly hop.

Hope I inspired you to pull out some paints or inks and get messy! Until next time, have an artful day.


So if you are inspired to play with mixed media, you can join in on the fun with either group.

  • Piece Craft Love Facebook group offers the Mix It Up Monday challenge (aka MUM) on the second Monday of the month.
  • Mixed Media Mayhem Facebook group is for all the love of mixed media. There is plenty of weekly inspiration over there and a once a month hop that let’s members play along.
