I had plans for mixed media. I had the journal. I had a magazine with sticky notes on pages. I had the Unity S.M.A.K. kits for several months. THEN...Splitcoaststampers added a new challange - Mix-ability! whoo hoo!
First up was YIN / YANG. Something matte + something shiny.
My matte is gesso + embossing powder AND chipboard + sequins. I don't guess chipboard & sequins are mediums. LOL. ;-) But they still matte & shiny. :-D
