I was doing a layout for the Black with 2 Challenge (which will be my next post) when I noticed the Mixed Media Challenge. Check it out at their website here  Here is my layout:

I began this layout with black cardstock on which I placed a smaller piece of grey cardstock and using a kaisercraft square stencil and clear embossing powder to get the first layer of the background.  Next I used black watercolour and bubblewrap on the entire page.  Using a Kaisercraft Circle stencil and Grey pen I outlined random circles on the page.  I also used a Tim Holtz Faded dots stencil and texture paste and a Tim Holtz Film Strip die cut.

I painted the chipboard circles in black watercolour paint and then used Tim Holtz Crackle Paint clear.  Once dry and cracked I rubbed it with grey ink and used Liquid Pearls on some of the pieces.  The outside edges are stamped with Distress Ink - picket fence.  I also randomly placed some clear droplets from Kaisercraft.

here are some close ups:
