I'm really excited to share with you all today! I dabbled into
mixed media a bit last week for my C.A.S.E. IT CARD
TUESDAY series I host on my YouTube channel. I had so much fun playing
around with the different art mediums - I had to do it again! There is so much
to learn about the art of mixed media. I found a host of tutorials online and
decided to give it another go round.
I picked out a paper pad that I thought would work for my tag. I used the
Prima Engraver paper pad. When you see it at first glance, you think vintage
or grunge. But really, it pretty versatile. Here is a pic of what I created
using the paper.
Omg! It's so cute!! I started my base page with a darker color from the collection.
I went over that with a coat of Gesso. I started using my brick mask from
Crafter's Companion and some homemade texture paste. Next, I added beautiful
colors. I used Dylusions, Mister Huey's, Lindy's Stamp Gang and Shimmers pPaints
to get that perfect backdrop on my tag. Love it!
Next I cut out a doily from my favorite
doily die from Cheery Lynn. I cut that in half to use at the top and bottom
of my tag. I then cut from the same page design, the daisy
topper die cuts. I really liked the layering effect it was causing. Take a
I wanted to floral arrangement to pop up a bit, so I used
foam dots to help with that. I placed them underneath a piece of chipboard I
layered with the design paper. I did a quick whitewash on that and added more of
the textured brick to it. I found some adhesive canvas and wood pieces in my
stash that had the perfect sentiments on it. On that goes, on top of the chip
I decided to tie some
seam binding and add a ribbon buckle and a flat back pearl to the top.
Finally, I added some metal embellishments, crochet doilies, leaves and white
pearls to finish the tag.
I absolutely LOVE how this turned out!!! What do you think? I will definitely have
my hand in more paint, gesso and paste in the near future, lol!
