Today we are showcasing our November Mixed Media kit. Each month we offer a mixed media kit that has an assortment of mixed media and tools, AND a project to make with them. As you can see in the picture below, this month’s kit has new Prima icing paste, as well as art stones and a beautiful flourish stencil. There is enough of these products to use on multiple projects, not just the project included in the kit! Also included are a set of three embroidery hoops, some canvas fabric, and some beautiful embellishments: a Prima resin frame and flowers, and some Creative Embellishments chipboard flourishes.
You may have seen some of the projects made with some of these items. Today I am sharing the project that I made using this kit.
I started this project by cutting the canvas and adding them to the embroidery hoops, then crudely painted the embroidery hoops and canvas with white gesso. Then I mixed up some of the Prima icing paste with water and gave the hoops another wash, leaving the canvas white.
On the larger two hoops I added some stenciling with the Prima flourish stencil. Then I painted over the stenciling with white gesso and before it dried, I wiped it off to give a faded look to the stenciling, which you can see in the closeup below.
Once dry, I glued the hoops together. I reversed the smallest one and place the resin frame on it to create a shallow shadow box effect. I added a clock cut out from the scrapbook kit, then added some lace and clock charm from my stash, as well as some small flowers.
I added painted the flourish chipboard with gesso and light green paint and cut the pieces to fit my design. I added flowers to the largest two hoops. Some of the smaller flowers are from my stash. I added some whitewashing with diluted gesso to blend them into the project.
On the largest hoop I added some papers from my stash (Prima Love Story).
And, I also added a chipboard title from my stash. Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Check out the blog this week for the last of the design team’s November projects!
