Mixed media tag: summer splash

Here's a mixed media tag i've created for my guest designer post at The mixed media mojo blog.

I started with Ranger's Manila tag inking with DI squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, spiced marmalade to get an ombre effect.
I splashed some water droplets with hands & wiped of the excess with paper towel to add more texture.

I mixed some mulberry mica flakes by Prima (which was a gift for winning Lulupu's blog hop) with gesso & applied it with palette knife to get a raised rock like effect. I tried to bring about the textured rocks i found in Goa. After drying, i inked up the surface with gathered twigs & vintage photo.

I applied texture paste through TCW's mini tile texture. With Prima bubbles stencil, i drew some circles with yellow & white fine liners & applied glossy accents & white enamel accents over them respectively.. I din't care too much about the precision of the circles as i liked the ragged edges look..
Also applied ink through the same stencil & random script stamping with Kaisercraft bg stamp.
Sentiment is from Heidi swapp collection.
Finally added some white gesso splashes to finish off the bg..

I drew the juice glass, lemon & starfish in plain white cardstock, colored with distress inks and fussy cut leaving a white border all around.. Gave a coat of crackle accents over the glass & i just loveee the effect.
Stuck everything to the base with glue & foam tape..

After adding the eylelet in place, i made a bow out of baker's twine & added a yellow sugar dot at the center to complete the project.

{I planned to make this a pictorial but dint get to take the step by step pics :(}
