The new Star Stampz Challenge this month is an Anything Goes Mixed Media Challenge.

I selected the Sparkle Digital Stamp from the Star Stampz Etsy shop.

I am still a newbie with mixed media.  I am super comfortable with using all kinds of mediums. On this piece, I have used a gold Paper Glaze on the stars around the girl.  I used a Vicki Boutin glaze with a stencil.  I’ve used some Nuvo Mousse with a couple of stencils as well.

I used some ink and did some watercoloring.  I also used some metallic watercolor paints to create the gold all over the piece. I’ve added lots of splatter with ink and gouache.

I also finally got some Posca paint pens to make marks on my project as well.  This is still outside my comfort zone.  I felt like they were too dark or bright compared to the rest of the project.  I did some stamping with distress oxides in pumice stone over the top of them to tone them down.

I’m also not as comfortable adding fibers and found things.  I did add a few things here, but alas I feel skeptical about them.

All in all, I like the piece and I really had fun making it!Star Stampz Mixed Media Challenge


I have a lot of fantastic stencils that are perfect for mixed media.  I used several from Vicki Boutin on this piece.

I’m especially happy with how this sweet digi sparkle girl turned out with my Copics!!  I am almost there with the hair!

While I’m still a work in progress, I hope you enjoy seeing these pieces outside my comfort zone.  I find them very relaxing to create and I love that I’m experimenting the entire time I create them.

Have a wonderful day!!
