Have you given this month's MMCC a try yet?
This time I went all out with both "reflections" and "water", but only cuz I saw this fantastic video of Kelly L.'s and basically watercolored right along with her!
TIP: I opted to use a stencil rather than a stamp for my silhouettes cuz I could flip it over to get a perfect mirror image for the reflection.
However, did you catch my boo boo??? How many birds in the sky? How many reflections?
Since watercoloring isn't too mixed media, I thought I would stencil the birds with acrylic paint. For a nice dark image with some texture and shine. Then I thought I'd stencil the reflections with watered down black paint to subdue them. Those extra birds are actually blobs of (too) watered down acrylic paint that seeped under my stencil. Argh.
I did cover the water with Wink of Stella, per Kelly. Catch some of that sparkle in this photo?
So besides my sentiment stamp and ink I've got:
TEXTURE - the roughness of the watercolor, white gel pen and my heat embossed sentiment
DIMENSION - um, nope
TECHNIQUE - watercoloring, stenciling, heat embossing
I'm calling it diet mixed media. And I need lots more practice. But it really is a great technique you should try! Check out more DT inspiration and the gallery here.
