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
