#66 - Mixed Media Page


I did say I have a couple of projects to post today. My next one is a simple mixed media page which I made for the Happy Little Stampers DT Call. Off late, I have been watching lots of videos by Marta Lapkowska and I love watching them. She is an amazing artist and so very inspiring.

Here is my page,

I started off on n old cardstock. To creted a little texture I randomly stuck some old washi tape on it(you can see if you look closely) and then applied some Heavy Gesso from Art Basics. Added the color to the page using Gansi Tanbi watercolors and sprays of water. The stuck the wooden embellishments(frame with pearls), chipboards, flowers, metallic wire and stamens. I then added clear glitter randomly using soft gel medium. Added the two sentiments from Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker sheet. Finally, sprayed some Dylusions Mica Sprays over the page.

#65 - Watercolors

Back with  few cards after another short break. This time decided to do some watercoloring. I came across the DT call for Happy Little Stampers and thought of giving it a go.

Here is my card,

I started off with a watercolor wash on the Tim Holtz Distress watercolor cardstock with shades of blue using my brand new Gansai Tambi watercolors(my anniversary gift along with a few other goodies ;-) ). I then heat embossed the opposite corners using the Tim Holtz Flourish stencil. For my focal point, I did the emboss resist watercoloring technique with the flowers from the Penny Black Blooming Garden set and fussy cut them. Stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from the My Favorite Things. Used foam tape to adhere the watercolored flowers at the center. Finally, layered this onto a black cardstock to complete the card.

IQCG # 31 - Bingo

Hello Crafty friends,

This is my first ever try at making a shabby chic card. Playing with layers of paper is not really me, but I really enjoyed making this card and I am really happy with the outcome.I made this card as DT inspiration for this month's IQCG Bingo challenge.

Bingo challenges/Tic-Tac-Toe challenges are so so so much. Here is my card,

I chose the middle horizontal line - Ribbon/lace - Flowers - Pink . Well, with this combination I had to make a shabby chic card.

The card is created with lots of layering from the Kaisercraft Rustic Harmony paper pads, a doily and lace here and there along with some pearls. I finished off the card with a few collectables from the Rustic Harmony set and pink flowers. I made the LOVE sentiment from scrabble embellishments.

The quilled elements in this card are the pink flowers which have been quilled from die-cuts that I had purchased long time back.

Looking forward for lots of entries for this challenge.
