Fancy Butterfly Mixed Media

Hello

I have some mixed media to share today which started as a piece of cereal box card before being covered in shades of yellow, orange and pink acrylic paint.

WP_20150924_15_35_18_Pro

I created various layers using stamps with ink and embossing powders and masks with acrylic paint.

I stamped the butterfly stamp from Hobby Art in black and layered the same image in pink vellum on top. A few jewel embellishments make the perfect body.

I added 2 more card layers using the same stamps and embossing powder with a corner punch and further paper pricking detail.

I hope you like it.

TTFN.

Mixed Media Floral Tomorrow

Hello

I have a “Mixed Media” project to share today.

WP_20140821_019

I started with a Gelli Print I had made using the Gelli Plate with acrylic paints in shades of pink, red, orange and yellow.

WP_20140819_004

I drew a flower using a Sharpie and coloured in using Spectrum Noir pencils.

I splodged yellow acrylic paint randomly through sections of “That Special Touch” Basket Weave Mask and left to dry completely.  I then repeated the process using red acrylic paint and the Moroccan mask.

The last mask I used was “That Special Touch” Leafy and this time I used 3D Clear Texture Paste and applied through sections.  It is white when it goes on but clear and shiny when it is dry.

I then cut lots of diecuts:

Sizzix Interlocking Circles Border Die in pale yellow (which I inked with orange and red ink randomly and tore roughly into 2 sections)

Sizzix Bigz Decorative Accent w/Flower & Leaves in orange foam (which I again stained with ink)

XCut Alphabet die (which I layered onto red cardstock)

I then arranged all the diecuts and added handwritten words.

Mixed Media Bird of Paradise

Hello

I have a quick mixed media project to share today using a lovely Bird of Paradise stamp.

WP_20140716_033

I started with the background which I covered with various shades of acrylic paint. I then stamped the Bird of Paradise in purple watercolour and when dry overstamped in black ink.

WP_20140716_042

In the background I stamped some text and random texture in a co-ordinating ink.

WP_20140716_037

Finally, I added some clear texture paste through a mask.

I hope you like it.

See you again soon.

Mixed Media Poppy Bookmark

Hello

I started with a piece of card cut to bookmark size and covered with acrylic paints in shades of  pink and yellow.

WP_20140714_010

I stamped the Open Poppy stamp in black and coloured with pencils. I then used some clear texture paste through a stencil for some added texture.

TIME and LOVE in MIXED MEDIA

Hello

I hope you are having a good week.  I would like to share a project which I have just finished.

20140708_143833

This has been an unfinished project for soooooo long I was unsure if it ever would get finished.

20140708_143854

I started with some collage stamping and inking to create a background.

20140708_143846

I cut loads of diecuts in blue and grey shades on a vintage time theme, which I distressed with rub-on wax and arranged randomly.

20140708_143916

I also cut letters to make the words TIME and LOVE which I distressed and arranged.

20140708_143901

It is becoming a theme that I have to include a butterfly somewhere and I managed to find the right spot up in the corner.

I hope you like it.  As always, I would love to hear your comments.

WP_20140408_003

Hello

I have another version of a card I did recently to share today.

This time using a sketchy stamp from Hobby Arts.

Bird of Paradise Flower Background in Blue

Hello

I unfortunately have not had too much time for “playing” this week due to a little girl being poorly, but I do have a “work in progress” to share, using a very beautiful Bird of Paradise Flower stamp, amongst others.

Now that my gorgeous little girl is better I will continue with this background and transform it into a finished piece.

I hope you have a great weekend. See you again soon.
