As always our DT have been creating some mixed media magic, let's check out what they've been up to this week:

Tracy Evans - I have created a mixed media card combining paints with the fabulous PanPastels, adding many layers to my background.

Tracy Scott - I created a postcard this week using my Distress Ink Pads and my fabulous PanPastels, check out my blog for more details....

Claire C I've used one of my favourite techniques on this canvas, it gives a really pretty sparkly effect. You can find all the details on my blog

Yvonne - my project is entitled "The Big Apple" - all details on my blog xx

Terry I have worked on a heartshaped box and made it into a Memory Box. The background was made with Gesso, Light Modelling Paste with the Mask Stencil Butterfly. The box is colored with Pearlescent Red and mixed with White PanPastel and White Coarse Pearlescent. On the borders of the box I placed some lace, just like on the inside of the Memory Box. to finish my Memory Box I played with roses which were colored with Pearlescent and Matt Gell and I placed some sentiments to make it into a Memory Box.

These are some of the products I have worked with:

Lou: For my project I wanted to use some of the small pieces of stampbord to create a Christmas decoration.
