“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:

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 🙂

Your Story Matters Mixed Media Project with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing a project I made using the March Mixed Media Kit. These AB Studio large chipboard pieces are amazing! I think I’m going to need all of them! Here’s what I came up with:

One of the most impressive things about the large chipboard is it’s durability! I started out with sprinkling the Lindy mica powders from the kit in a random fashion, starting with the light colors and then using the darker ones all over the chipboard, leaving some parts without any. Then I sprayed the whole piece with water, saturating some sections, and not so much in other parts to create a marbled effect. I kept playing with this technique until I got the result I wanted, which resembles a distressed, somewhat patina metal like appearance.

The kit comes with several AB Studio cut out sheets, so I cut several of the images- navy map, music sheets, and an old picture, and assembled them for my focal point of the project.

Here you can see how I let the concentrated part of the micas stay somewhat dry, giving the chipboard a bit of texture.

I added the Prima Marketing velvet charms from the kit to the flower cluster. I used some blue wax paste to the Prima copper flowers to blend into the project. Some items on this project are from my stash- the metal pieces and the lace.

Lastly, I added more of the Prima velvet charms to some jump rings and attached them to hang at the bottom of the project.

Mixed Media layout

Hi everyone, Kim here. I’m bringing you a MM layout I created using this months scrapbook kit. I let the photo inspire this layout.

This is a recent photo of me on my way out to my birthday dinner with friends. I remember the mood, It was a fun and elegant night. I tried to bring that to the page.

How about some close ups:

I used some items from my stash for the background. Starting with Prima Cotton Candy Mist, white crackle paste and rose gold icing paste (from a previous MM kit). I also did some random stamping with a script stamp.

I layered some papers from the kit behind the photo. I also added the chipboard filmstrip framed in the layers, plus a doily die cut.

I added some art stones and glitter to my floral cluster. It’s nice and shimmery in real life. The flowers and clock are embellishments from the kit.

 

That’s all I have for today.

Make sure you come back as our designers have more projects to reveal.

Beautiful confidence by Annie

Hello everyone!

I am sharing today a layout made with March Scrapbook Kit :

I was in love with this paper ! I cut out the bottom and put it on a beautiful flower background (this was done only at the end) . I put a coat of clear gesso first, than used a stencil with Modeling Paste.  As you can see on the photo, I took some Mint paint from my stash (Art Alchemy from Prima) and mixed it with water.

As you can see here, I used other colors too after putting different flowers from the kit.

So many possibilities with these Mintay Papers !! You can cut out so many Ephemeras, ATC’s and flowers, I love that !

There are also gorgeous Ephemeras from Prima which I used as a title.

The word confidence is from a Prima sticker sheet also included in the kit.

Material used :

Pretty Pale Flowers Sand Dunes
Zella Teal Flowers – Made with Love
Zella Teal Flowers – Fearless
Pretty Pale Ephemera
Resin in a box- clock
Elements sheet
Bingo Card

Mixed Media Monday

Hi everyone, Kim here. 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 Lindy’s magical shakers and this amazing 12×12 chipboard circle from AB Studios. Also includes are several ephemera sheets for cut outs and a few other embellishments.

Here is the kit:

I love Lindy’s sprays, and I have worked with the magicals before. This was a fun project to create.

Here are some close ups of the project:

I prime the chipboard piece before I used the magicals. I also used some copper and clear crackle paste (from my stash) on it prior to adding the magicals.

For the ephemera, I used lots of foam tape to give the layers some dimension. The same with the flowers and butterflies. The lace doilies are from the March Scrapbook kit.

Here is the video process on how I created this and how to use the Lindy’s magicals:

“Love” Watercolor Panel with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing a project I made with items from the scrapbook and mixed media kits. This is a small watercolor panel from my stash.

I started out by adding some stenciling, which I let dry completely, then sprayed with water, and while still wet, I added some of the blue Prima Marketing liquid watercolor. The panel was very wet, so I picked up the excess moisture with a paper towel, and hit it with a heat gun.

Next, I painted the Creative Embellishments heart chipboard pieces with  white gesso, then added the red liquid watercolor. Once dry, I added the black liquid watercolor to the panel and chipboard pieces, then quickly wiped it off with a paper towel to get a grungy, weathered result.

In this closeup you can see how well adding the black liquid watercolors created the distressed tones.

Next, I added the chipboard, as well as the rest of the embellishments, all from the kit except the clip. Lastly, I added some of the Prima Marketing metallique wax in turquoise satin to the entire piece.
