“Find Your Path” Mixed Media Canvas with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Have you seen our mixed media kit this month? It’s full of wonderful products including the new tissue paper and texture pastes from Prima Marketing! Take a look:

 

And, here’s what I came up with using the kit along with some items of my own.

Here’s how I created the background:

I ripped up some of the tissue paper and adhered it randomly with 3D Gloss Gel that I added to the canvas as a glue, then once again over the tissue paper to seal it.

Next, I added some of the cream texture paste to the canvas everywhere that the tissue paper was not, adding some to the edges of the tissue paper as well.

I added the cool grey and moss texture pastes as well.

I painted the Prima resin frame with the black gesso, and once dry, I also dry brushed the frame with some of the moss texture paste.

In this close up, you can see how the cream texture paste is able to blend perfectly with the tissue paper.

I added some flowers and gears from my stash.

This closeup shows one way to “blend” the texture pastes- the colors go together perfectly. The bee is a piece of junk jewelry I had.

Hello !

Here is another layout made with the Scrapbook Kit for April !  I really had fun with it because I have made such different projects with the same kit ! Possibilities are endless !

My inspiration for this one came from the Pink flowers at the bottom of this paper.  I knew I wanted Fuchsia  but I had to change the color of the flowers. I took the gold spray from the kit and used it on the flowers.  I decided to add more flowers from my stash to add more color.  I used some watercolour and the spray also all around the layout.

I really love how it turned out with the chipboard and the embellishments.  Here are some close-ups :

Mixed Media Monday

Hi everyone, Kim here with another edition of Mixed Media Monday. Today I am going to be sharing my project created with the Mixed Media kit. I also have a video to share of the process.

This month’s card kit features Prima Marketing  texture paste and this cute 4×4 canvas. Also included is a resin frame, black gesso and the brand new Finnabair rice paper sheets.

Here is the kit:

I love the texture paste, and I have worked with them  before. This was a fun, but messy project to create.

Here are some close ups of the project:

I added some flowers, resin and lace from my stash.

Here is the video process on how I created this and how to use the texture paste:

Cards from Annie

Hello everyone !  Today I am sharing my second project for this month, this time with the Cards Tags and more Kit which is filled with beautiful products from Graphic 45, Creative Embellishments and Scrappy cat.  If you want all the details of the kit you can find it at the end of this post.

 

I made 3 cards for this project, all 8×4 approximately.  I used 3 different background papers and 3 other papers on top.  I used the cute tags and pockets to add embellishments to the card along with the beautiful Red flowers.  I painted the  music notes with the gray ink from the Scrapbook Kit.  The sentiments are from my stash.  On each flower I used the glitter glue included in the kit, I think it gives great texture.

 

Here are some close-ups :

Material used :

  1. Graphic 45 Love Notes – 8×8 paper pad
  2. Graphic 45 Love Notes – Tags & Pockets
  3. Graphic 45 Love Notes – Stickers
  4. Graphic 45 Rose Bouquet – Triumphant Red

Canvas by Annie

Hello everyone !!

I was really anxious to share with you this project because I love it !!! It happens once in a while where I really am proud of what I did !

My project was made with the Scrapbook kit, filled with so many beautiful products.

I decided to work with a canvas this time for this layout, this is something I wanted to try for a long time.

Here are some photos of how I began my project :

First thing I did was apply Crackle Paste on the canvas and let it dry during the night because the crackle is always better if it dries without heat. the paste I used is from Finnabair, however I heard that it is discontinued…. There are other brands available on the market.



I really wanted to use Pink for this layout, so I used watercolour for the background along with the Gold Nuvo Spray included in the kit. The 2 colours went very well together.

After the colours were dry, I used different stamps from my stash with the Chalk from the kit, which I also used on a peace of chipboard.

Here are some close-ups :

 

 

 

 

As you can see, I added some gold on the chipboard :

 

This Pink flower was cut out from one of the papers from 49 and Market and that was my inspiration for the colours.

 

If you have any questions feel free to ask 🙂
