Sandra here today with my next layout to share with you.
Oh my.. it seems like ages! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you all well for the New Year.. (eek.. which we are already a month into!)
My layout to share with you is a layout created using the December Fun and Free kit.

I experimented a bit with the alcohol inks and the stencil that came in the kit.
First I tried using different mediums for the base on a spare sheet of white card. 
I tried using nothing, gesso and Jo Sonjas Clear Glaze Medium which I had bought by mistake a while ago (I thought it was clear gel medium!! doh! should of gone to Spec Savers! )
I covered some with gesso, some with the glaze and left the others unchanged.
I played with some impasto the alcohol inksand stencils, stamping, mists and found I quite liked the affect of the glaze, with the impasto, stencil, ink and mists down the bottom.  

so I gathered my material....

and using a baby wipe I covered the base of the white cardstock in the kit with a coat of the clear glaze medium.

I then added the impasto using a knife and a stencil. (* note to self.. put one of those cool palette knives on my shopping list!)

allow to dry.. or heat gun it.
add a bit of stamping using the Kaisercraft little triangle  stamp from the Rustic Goodness kit.
and then add some drops of the alcohol ink.

and then, while it is still semi wet add some yellow mist (not in the kit)

Heat gun dry.
Being careful not to make the impasto bubble.. but then again... that could look rather cool!!
Here are some close ups of the finished effects.

I hope this encourages you to grab a spare piece of paper, gather your mixed media materials
Just play!!
