And here I am with my first Design Team card for the Mixed Media Card Challenge. Yay! Here’s the theme for July:
The challenges run from the 1st to the 25th of each month, with the winners announced on the last day of the month. To play along, simply create a mixed media card and enter it at the Mixed Media Card Challenge. Be sure to check out the cards from the rest of the Design Team! So much inspiration!
New to mixed media? Simply combine two or more mediums on your card. So many choices: watercolor, gesso, acrylics, distress inks, pencils, crayons, Copics, other inks and on and on…
Here’s how mine was created. I covered a piece of watercolor paper with gesso and let it dry. Next I added several different shades of Gelatos, misted them with water and used a paintbrush to smoosh ’em around 🙂 When that was dry, I used some glass bead gel through my ARTplorations stencil. Easy peasy background right?
The flower and wood veneer sentiment were spritzed with a color mist. The little antique cloche was turned upside down to use as a vase.
Here’s what I used:
Paper: Strathmore 140# watercolor and Neenah solar white
All the other stuff: ARTplorations Retro Circles stencil, Gelatos, gesso, wood veneer, misc. flower, Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst, Prima La Vie Antique Cloches, ribbon, adhesives
Back soon with more my sweet friends…
