For my mixed media background, I saw a Heidi Swapp video using gel texture medium, letting it dry and then putting it through the Minc, with foil on top. I used Golden Regular Gloss Gel and it worked perfectly!! I was so excited!! I also used a green mist, swishes of Liquid Metals, stamping (words) and washi tape.
My handmade item is a beautiful Charm's Creations heart with Butterfly.
