Mixed Media Panel with Rae

Happy Sunday!

By now you’ve seen a number of stunning projects made with the July Mixed Media kit by our design team.  This kit was so much fun to work with!

Alcohol inks, beautiful flowers, a whole page page of elements to fussy cut, and two different projects from AB Studios: a 12X12 chipboard panel and acrylic gear pieces.  I decided to use the chipboard panel:

I began by adding some clear matte embossing powder to the panel.  Then I added the orange and yellow alcohol inks to most of the panel, and added a bit of purple to round it out.  I let the ink dry, then I gave the entire piece a heavy coating of the snow cap alcohol ink then I blasted the wet ink with a heat gun until it bubbled and dried creating a layered distressed effect.  You can see how the finish looks in the closeups:

I used a Prima resin frame from my stash to create a focal point for the project.  If you don’t have anything similar, a cut out image of a frame, or just some paper layers would work just as well.

I cut several flowers from the AB Studios paper and added them to poke out from under the actual flowers, all of which are 49 and Market.  (The small purple ones are from my stash.)  I whitewashed the flowers with diluted gesso to soften the look of the project.

I added a Prima Marketing resin dragonfly from the scrapbook kit to complete the project.  I added some alcohol ink (purple and orange) as well as some gold wax past for a shimmery finish.
