M3 is the Mixed media Monthly group over at The-Lilypad.  This first week is a challenge using the words of the theme of this kit.  Embrace / Delightful / Possibilities 

I chose possibilities and my first thought was of my son who I just dropped off to college last week.  All products are from the M3 kits and the add-ons.  I blended 3 papers, I wanted to stick with the blue-sh tones to express my mood.  The photo is from the school clocktower building, and I used a photoshop technique to make it look drawn on the page (with the soft watercolor brush from Just jaimeeCU that is going away Aug 31st - this one here....  for $1.75 it's a great bargain on a great versatile set!).

When I think of mixed media pages in my journal, I doodle, draw, paint, glue, etc... and that is the feel I want from these challenges. i also hope to make them all 8.5x11 so I can print them on 6x8 matte paper, and keep them in my art journal.

  1. I love your M3 page. I hadn't seen it at TLP yet, so I'm excited to see it here first. I love all of the painty touches and the doodles on the side. Such a great page!

    Hugs to you for being strong as you sent him off on his way. I know how hard that is. But you never really lose them when they go (and in some cases like mine, they come back and you wonder if you'll ever get rid of them... just kidding... lol).

    I'm looking forward to reading your posts over on Jaimee's blog. :)
