Mixed Media

My friend Julia and I have signed up for a couple of classes in August to learn how to make Art Journals.  The class is being taught by Dina Wakley who is a Mixed Media artist.  As a result of taking the class, we had to buy a number of things that we'll be using, and since this is all new to me, I thought I should try something Mixed Media.  Here is the card I just made:

I applied acrylic paint, bubble wrap, spackle (with a stencil), then distress ink that was spritzed with water on a rubber stamp.  I stamped a saying to make it a get well card.  I think it's not too bad for a first effort.  Next time, I'll use the background to add a die cut or something other than a stamp.

Thanks for looking.  If you have any recommendations as to how I should progress, feel free to let me know.
