Hi everyone. It's Esther and I'm one of Rachel's creative team members. Each month I will be bringing you a Mixed Media Challenge. If you are new to mixed media, this is a fantastic way to dip your toe, explore and push your creative boundaries. For those you who are die hard mixed media fans, welcome to mixed media paradise!

For March, our challenge will be to create a Rachel Designer Mash Up:
  • at least 50% of your layout should consist of Rachel's Designs that are currently available in her Oscraps Shop and the remaining should be from Designer here at Oscraps, (example: if your layout has 10 layers, then at least 5 layers has to be Rachel's Designs and the other remaining layers from a Designer of your choice from Oscraps).
  • it is preferred that the layout is created with as close to a 50/50 designer split as possible but there is room to change the dynamics of the split a little as long as at least half of the layout is using Rachel’s Designs that are currently available here at Oscraps
  • for the layout to be eligible for the coupon drawing, listing the total number of elements/papers used from each designer is required (ex: Rachel Jefferies Designs: 1 paper, 3 flowers, 2 stamps, etc; Scrap Designer of your Choice: 2 blended papers and 2 leaves, 1 ribbon, 1 word strip, etc)
  • Use of a template is acceptable, if the template includes a paper or embellishments (such as threads, stitches, stamps etc.) please note these will need to be included when counting your layers for the relevant designer.

While I would prefer that collabs aren't used for this challenge, I do understand that Rachel's Designs may be new to many so for this March challenge, any of Rachel's collabs that are available here at Oscraps will be accepted.

Here are a some sample layouts for inspiration:

Here's one of my sample layouts using Rachel's I'm Somewhere in Between Collection paired up with Manu Design Studio : Heart of Lion Page Kit

Layout consists of:
Rachel Jefferies Designs: 2 word strips, 3 flowers, 3 paper pieces, 2 stamps, 1 ribbon, 2 leaves, 2 twigs, 2 filmstrip, 1 rafia, 2 frames, 1 messy thread
Manu Design Studio: 2 buttons, 1 car, 1 clip, 1 man, 1 word strip, 1 stamp, 1 blank tab (that I then put my text on), 2 gears, 1 string, 1 chickenwire, 1 key, 3 frames, 1 ruler, 1 cardboard piece, 1 overlay, 1 splatter, 1 background paper

Here's another layout I completed, using Rachel's Give Yourself Permission Collection paired up with Vicki Stegall Designs: Magic in the Mess Collection

Layout consists of:
Rachel Jefferies Designs: 1 button, 2 leaves, 1 flower, 4 paper pieces, 3 sequin clusters, 3 word art/ journal prompts, 1 ribbon, 1 messy thread, 1 stamp, 1 paper blended into background
Vicki Stegall Designs:1 flower, 3 ribbon, 3 branches, 3 charms 3 bling flowers, 1 word art, 3 filmstrip frames, 1 background paper

* For your challenge entry to be counted, you MUST upload your finished layout to this thread and include the total number of elements/papers used for each designer. Please link your thread to your gallery image as it helps us leave love on your layout (and, validate your project).
