Use Your Wings Mixed Media Project

Hi everyone, Kim here sharing my Mixed Media project created with the November Mixed Media kit.

This month’s Mixed Media kit features lots of different mediums. We have  some crackle paste, some dry glitter, mica powder and some inka gold. Also included is are some flowers to alter. Everything needed to alter the metal wings included in the kit.

Here is the kit:

These wings were so fun to create with.

Here is my project:

I started with the wooden heart in the kit. I gave it a nice heavy coat of the crackle paste and set it aside to dry. Once dry, I wiped the high points with the inka gold, then gave it a spritz with mist I made from the mica powder.

For the wings, I went over the high points with the inka gold. The I added glue to the tips and sprinkled them with the dry glitter for some shimmer.

For the flowers, I took a few of the script ones and swiped them with the inka gold. Then I used the mist and sprayed all the flowers for a good dose of shimmer. It’s hard to see the shimmer in the photo, but they really shine in person. The blue flowers are from the scrapbook kit. They added just the right punch of color. The wings, I mad from a mold and just sprayed them with the mist.

Once all that was done, I just put it all together. Once I got the vision in my heard as what I wanted to do, this came together pretty quickly (except for drying time, LOL).

Remember to stay tuned to the blog  for more inspiration using the our kits. We will be revealing the December kit soon.

Mixed Media Butterfly with Rae

Hello and Happy Saturday!

Today I’m sharing a project that I made using the June mixed media kit.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about how awesome this kit is! The Prima Marketing resin butterfly pack is BEAUTIFUL! And those alcohol ink colors are so pretty! Here’s what I came up with:

There are two large butterflies in the set, and for this project I used the one with indentations on the wings. I mixed the Ranger Texture Paste and the 13 Arts Magic Powder to create a light fluff. I filled each of the holes half way with the mixture, then added some loose pearls from my stash. Then I added some of the 13 Arts brown microbeads to fill in the visible spots of the mixture.

Once dried, I added the alcohol inks. First, I added the patina color to the entire butterfly, then I added the browns to the pearls.

The color was pretty bold, so I toned the blue down with some white gesso. Then I added some copper wax paste to highlight the texture and give it a distressed, aged look. You can see the details in this close up below:

I decided to add this butterfly to the stand that came in the resin butterfly set. I primed the metal part and the wood circle with gesso. I added a couple of metal flowers from my stash as well, then brushed the entire piece with some of the alcohol inks over the gesso. I added some more texture paste to the middle and poured more of the brown microbeads to it so it filled the metal. I used some of the green rhinestone strand from the kit to the wood circle. Lastly, I added some copper wax paste like I did to the butterfly.

Butterfly “Canvas” by Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I’m sharing a “canvas” I made using some products from both the June scrapbook and mixed media kits. It’s not actually a canvas- I upcycled the Prima Marketing resin feather packaging which is a 4 in. X 12 in. box.


I flipped the box over and used the flat part. I cut a piece of the Prima Marketing Vintage Floral paper and glued it to the wood. In the closeup below, you can see some of the details- I added some stenciling using the Ranger paste from the mixed media kit in random spots on the paper, and then I added some gold wax paste over the stenciling to give it a bit of definition, and I also added some around the edges of the project.

I added some embellishments- the Prima Marketing metal ladder, and some Little Birdie roses and leaves that I dry-brushed using some white gesso.

I added some Prima Marketing rhinestone chain pieces from the mixed media kit to the leaves for added interest. I also added some wax paste to the roses.

This is one of the large resin butterflies from the mixed media kit. I painted it with a mixture of the Ranger paste and patina alcohol ink which became very light. The butterfly body is made from a couple of things from my stash0 The long swirl is a resin piece I made using a mould. In the center is a metal piece. Once glued together. I added some wax paste to highlight the texture and to give the center some definition. I finished off the butterfly by adding more of the green rhinestone chain.
