STEPBY STEP TUT.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 will have texture on the surface, it is the best way to create texture on any surface easily, Next I pasted Skewer Sticks, Backings of canvas and some other wooden embellishments,

this is how it looks :

 

IMG_20180727_094221956.jpg

 

 

step2.png

Further I added some more embellishments like Mini Metal gears, Wooden keys, Pebbles & flat back pearls, Then I covered everything using gesso again.

 

IMG_20180727_095417070.jpg

 

 

step3.png

After everything dries completely. I colored entire project using Craftyscrappers shimmer sprays named “Ocean waves“, “Sweet sunshine“, “Rusty Denim“, “Lushy orchid” after I finish the spraying before it gets dried I tilted the project little bit so this way all the color flew & blend into each other nicely .. these sprays are so amazing that it goes on any surface as you can see here.

 

 

step4

I stamped the image from stamp set called “Feathers” and colored the image using acrylic paints. I Just love this stamp set and its perfect focal point for any mixed media project or even cards.

IMG_20180728_153942879.jpg

 

 

 

step5

I added image to the project and to lift the image bit upwards I glue down some cardboard pieces behind the image and paste that on project, you can used double sided foam tape for this process too, And to give more shimmer and sparkle I apply Shimmer paint metallic lustre “Bronze” using dry brush technique, and voila!! this is final & glorious look of the finished Project.

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.

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.

So here’s my Finished project
MIXED MEDIA ON CIRCULAR PANEL.jpg
STEPBY STEP TUT.png
step1.png
I took simple plastic circle shape to work on, and paste corrugated cardboard on it to give more strength as well as more dimensional look.
MIXED MEDI TAG-FLORAL BEAUTY-STEP1.jpg
step2.png
Next I added few cloth tags randomly, Cloth tags are super awesome to create layers, so
next time when you purchase something don’t throw those tags away 😉 and prime the
surface using gesso.
This is how it looks with the shopping tags  🙂 
MIXED MEDI TAG-FLORAL BEAUTY-STEP3.jpg
This is how it looks once, primed.
MIXED MEDI TAG-FLORAL BEAUTY-STEP2.jpg
step3.png


I stamped the image from Craftyscrappers stamp set called “Beautiful” on watercolor
paper & spread bronze embossing powder and then heat emboss it, I also colored the
circle panel using Shimmer sprays ” Muddy pool ” & “Sweet Sunshine” I personally love
this stamp set a lot and its great to use as a focal point for tag, cards or any kind of mixed
media project.

I placed the stamped image and added some thread behind it. I also added some bronze embossing powder on top part of panel and heat emboss it just to add more sparkly look.

IMG_20180415_214142_981.jpg

 

To create my mixed media scrapbook layout i have used Craftyscrappers,

 

HELLO STAMP SET

ST-FLW-16[hello].jpg

 

And  SIMPLE ALPHABETS stamp set

ST-ALP-01[SIMPLEALPHABETS].jpg

 

Along with “ INSPIRE” stamp set

 

st-mix-16.jpg

 

 

A Brief tutorial:

 

  •  I took 320 GSM watercolor paper and sprayed using Craftyscrappers “Rusty Denim” and “Sweet Sunshine” shimmer sprays randomly, not covering whole page as you can see in final image.
  • Then I took multiple stamps from stamp set called “Hello” and stamped the images using black ink pad.
  • I stamped those swirly images first so that little amount of those stamped images will stay behind the layers which I am going to add further
  • .Next I took round doily and also took 4 circle cutouts of paper, I colored those circles with Craftyscrappers “Rusty denim” and placed behind the actual images forming a composition.
  • After placing I used black color here and there to give little depth.
  • I took white paper and tore down the edges and distress them using black ink pad and brown ink pad, and placed beneath the photo & added sky blue resin frame to give finished look.
  • To put everything together I stamped dotted pattern stamp around the composition, for this I used “INSPIRE” stamp set.Voila!!!
  • Our mixed media scrapbook layout is complete.
