Mixed Media Tag

Good morning crafty friends,

I have made a mixed media tag for you.

I started with some gesso and then added a light paint. When this was dry, I added modelling paste through a stencil and made sure it was dry before I added some gold and pink paint.

When all the paint was dry, I used the stamp to add some contrast to the tag and splattered with black and white.

To finish, I used the papers and flowers to make a nice cluster and a beautiful quote.

hope I have inspired you, can’t wait to see what you create

Upcycled Plank Wall Decor- ‘Life is Beautiful’

I had an old plank which I wanted to upcycle rather than throwing in the dump. I started by giving it a coat of white gesso and used Mont Marte modelling paste and different stencils from my stash to give a background to my plank.

I added colors in yellow and pink for my background and watered them down, for this I have used Archival Multi-surface paints Pink Swirl and Dandelion.

I created embellishments out of Mont Marte modelling paste since I didn’t have any clay in my stash. I added the modelling paste to my mould and let it dry completely. It only took couple of hours for it to dry since I stay in a tropical place. Depending on where you stay these modelling paste embellishments can dry up in few hours or few days.

I gave a coat of gesso first and colored the embellishments with chalk paint Misty Rose and watered it down. Then I used tinted metallic paint – Golden Glaze to highlight the textures and high points

I fussy cut some elements from the Little Birdie Shabby Chic Bouquet paper pack

I used some leaf die cuts and colored them with the help for water brush with alcohol ink Paprika and Citron Breeze and distress ink Picked Raspberry from my stash.

I made a composition of all my embellishments, leaves, Little Birdie fussy cut elements and flowers from Celebrate Life collection- Celestina, Amica, Agnes in pink and white Elira and Deborah. I added some micro beads with the help of soft gel and added a sentiment “Life is Beautiful” from a stamp set from Little Birdie sentiment stamps.

I hope you liked my upcycle project and will give it a try. Use code Sumedha5 for an additional 5% discount if you want to buy products used here.
