MIU#15 - July: Mixed Media

Hello there!  It's the start of another month and that means an amazing challenge over on the Mix It Up blog.  Our theme this month is Mixed Media.  I really had fun with this one.

I used Distress Oxides for the background.  Then I added a few spritzes of water.  I used my heat tool to dry it.  And then I added some texture paste through a stencil to give the background some more interest.  I watercolored the sea horse and the sea weed with a water brush and Distress Oxides.  Love the effect this created.
