So have you checked the newly launched floral stamps from  @craftyscrappers ,they are gorgeous in both designs and sentiments that come along the stamp sets,

MIXED MEDIA ART JOURNAL PAGE-an inspiration-DT ARCHANA SEHGAL

Hello my Arty and crafty friends,
This is Archana Here, Creative designer @craftyscrappers and i Hope you all are doing great, today I come up with another mixed media project for you, where i will be showing you how you can create a mixed media art journal.

 

FOR ALL VIDS AND BLOG WRITEUPS.jpg

all using Craftyscrappers amazing shimmer sprays and stamp set called

A walk to remember

ST-LOV-31.jpg

 

This is such a beautiful stamp set, that when i first received it i couldn’t get my eyes off it.
The quality of Craftyscrappers stamps are superb and so as their designs.
Each month they come up with such beautiful variation, whether it be their critters stamp collection or amazingly designed background and border stamp sets or basic themed and mixed media stamp sets, they have it all and are still increasing the number.

the best thing is that, these designs are hand drawn and hand lettered by our indian artists/illustrators and are manufactured right here in india 🙂 Craftyscrappers not only provide stamp sets at an economical price but all their products are at economic price range.
They put forward so much effort and mind in bringing the best in the crafting world,
keeping in mind the various needs of the crafters and their affordability.

 

I have also used craftyscrappers gorgeous stencil,

RANGOLI

cs-stnl-24[RANGOLI].jpg

 

I just love this “Rangoli stencil” These beautiful and high quality stencils,will help you to create amazing backgrounds
or highlights on your projects.These stencils comes in a trendy package of 8x8inches and have a 6.5×6.5INCH in size,
working area which makes it easier for you to twist and turn the stencils according to your work surface.
And the most incredible thing about them is, they are pocket friendly.

 

And craftyscrappers, the most versatile shimmer sprays

 

 

Craftyscrappers Shimmer Sprays are high quality  dyes based, acid-free, non-toxic concentrated colorant for porous surfaces.
The shimmer in these sprays adds the touch of beauty to your craft projects. These are water-based sprays.

INSTRUCTION TO USE: 

  • Remove the inner seal, Assemble the Spray pumps to the Shimmer  sprays bottle firmly.
  • Shake the shimmer spray bottle horizontally before spraying to avoid nozzle clogging.
  • Spray gently to the desired area,
  • Put the cap back on and keep aside after use.
  • Craftyscrappers Shimmer sprays bright and vibrant palette will colorize paper, Sticky Back Canvas, wood, paper, clay and more.
  • You can use these directly or you can even mist them with water to lighten the colour or mix-match the colors to make your own variations.
  • Can be used to create backgrounds on cards, scrapbooks, journal pages, and in mixed media art  as well as home decor projects.

IMG_20180726_153520210.jpg

 

 

 

List of Supplies:

 

 

A Brief tutorial

 

  • On a blank page I created texture using stencil called “RANGOLI” randomly
  • I created horizon line using black acrylic paint in the middle of page so that it will be easier to have reflected image. I also created horizontal and vertical lines using palate knife to give abstract look to whole page.
  • I sprayed the amazing and sparkly having different shades of Shimmer sprays, starting from edges of page I used “Muddy pool” And on horizon lines used “Rusty denim”, “Ocean waves”, “Sweet sunshine”, “Dancing peacock” I sprayed vertically.
  • Next I stamp the image from stamp set called “A walk to remember” and colored it using diluted acrylic paints, you can use watercolors or markers or any medium that you are comfortable with.
  • Now the fun part, I stamped the same image on Mirror stamp set and used that stamp set on page to have mirror image, I didn’t stamp exact whole image because I wanted to have that image incomplete and to blend in the background and have abstract look to it.
  • To finish the page I Added Butterfly and beautiful quote from the same stamp set and distress the edges of page using black ink pad.

Okay so Here are the projects which we are going to create Today:

 

feb.jpg

 

PROJECT#1: Mixed Media altered MDF board

 

ins.jpg

Untitled-1.png

step1.png

I took 10 inch circle shaped MDF board, and prime it using gesso, but instead of using brush, i used palate knife to apply gesso, this way i have texture on the surface, it is the best way to create texture on any surface easily, this is how it looks :

1.jpg

step2.png

I used MDF photo frame with word LOVE and steampunk gears of different shapes & sizes, which are easily available online or any local craft store, and then glue them to form a random composition.

2.jpg

step3.png

After everything dries completely, i added resin Victorian frame and cute little angel cupid, i also added paper flowers, (don’t worry about the embellishment colors), at the end we are going to cover everything with gesso.. and as i always says use whatever you have in your stash, okay so moving on to rest tutorial.. 🙂

3.jpg

step4.png

Added micro beads, this is one of my favorite thing to add to any mixed media project, and later cover entire project with gesso.

4.jpg

This seems all confusing and hard but trust me guys once you start building layers and embellishment you will find it easier than ever.

step5

I started coloring using Craftyscrappers “Shimmer sprays” named Juicy watermelon and Sweet sunshine, after you finish the spraying before it gets dried just tilt the project little bit so this way both the color will flow & blend together..
these sprays are so amazing that it goes on any surface as you can see here,
Craftyscrappers Shimmer Sprays are available in 16 gorgeous colors to chose from.

5.jpg
after it dried completely i used “fixative spray” to seal that shine n color,
as these shimmer sprays are water based.

step6

Next I used gesso to highlight the texture and elements using dry brush technique,
here the base coat colors does not scattered because i have sealed the colors using fixative, as you can see here, how beautiful finish i got in this project…

7.jpg

step7

I painted the letter LOVE and cupid using Craftyscrappers (pearl finish) SHIMMER PAINTSDreamy Daffodils and (gold touch)SHIMMER PAINTS- Tasty Cranberries  and used black paint to give depth to the project.

6.jpg

HERE’S A CLOSER LOOK AT THE SHIMMER PAINTS AND THEIR EFFECT:

8.jpg

step8

Added pearls and painted them using Craftyscrappers (gold touch) shimmer paint-
Tasty cranberries” , also splattered this color a bit, and voila!!
this is final & glorious look of the finished Project.

PROJECT#2: Mixed Media TAGS

 

p1.jpg

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL

  • I took two white cardstock tags 6 inches x 3 inches and using Craftyscrappers Damask stencil & texture paste created texture on both the tags..
    This way i made background on both the tags.
  • Colored 1st tag using Craftyscrappers Shimmer Sprays- juicy watermelon and lushy orchid and 2nd tag using Craftyscrappers Shimmer Sprays- sweet sunshine and lushy orchid, while color is wet tilt both the tag little bit to run the color from texture I created earlier.

 

TAG#1

t1.jpg

  • Moving to 1st tag, i Stamped the image and sentiments from Craftyscrappers Everything magical stamp set and colored them
  • I took 2 smaller tags around 2.5 inches x 1 inch and place them randomly.
  • I also took corrugated cardboard to adhere behind stamped image,
    (you can clearly see this step in the finished tag.)
  • After fuzzy cutting the image I adhere image on corrugated cardboard using double sided foam tape, and place different size n color paper flowers.
  • Once everything dries completely, used black watercolor to gave depth & after placing the sentiment I added maroon micro beads around the flower and distress the edges of tag using black ink pad… here we finished our first tag.

 

TAG#2

t2.jpg

 

  • For 2nd tag I used image from the Everything magical and sentiment from Adventure Awaits stamp set.
  • Took gears and colored them using turquoise blue acrylic paint and after it dries highlight them using craftyscrappers chalk paint “Zesty lilac”.
  • Placed them randomly to form a composition leaving one side of tag empty for corrugated cardboard.
  • I colored the stamped image and distress the edges of corrugated cardboard.
  • Place stamped image on corrugated cardboard using double side foam tape.
  • Added sentiment and silver micro beads in empty spaces.
  • I also distress the edges of tag little bit using black watercolor and this is how I finish 2nd tag as well.
