Mixed media Plaid-

For SCS this week the mix-ability challenge is to make plaid with crossing lines, since we can't cross paths with people in real life because of the virus crisis.  The media I used for my projects were water color pencils, water color paint, and arteza ink pens. 
 I started by drawing lines on the cardstock with the watercolor pencils. 

I water colored poppies and splattered the cardstock. 

 I cut my cardstock into 2 ATC's. (Artist Trading Cards) I then wrote scriptures about anxiety on the back. 

Second project. Showing the water colored pencils.

I sprayed the cardstock with water to activate the water color pencils. 

Then I painted more poppies. 

I cut little circles of typing paper to cover the poppies so I could splatter the page.

I drew little music notes and I doodled with my pen around the edges of the poppies and drew in the stems. 

I added a scripture and put it in my bible art journal. I went around the edges with gold paint to add some interest. 

Third project. I decided to make the plaid further apart and I watercolored some decorative pear blossoms. I added the scripture and I am going to put in my bible art journal. 


  1. Beautiful projects MariLynn - I love that you used the poppies, as here in New Zealand, and Australia too, tomorrow is ANZAC day, which commemorates the fallen and wounded in the Wars. Your hand on the scripture verses is lovely
    Stay safe

  2. Wow! I love the plaid and also the finished card design.
