Decorative Mixed Media (by Anne)

Good morning. Today I am sharing a couple of mixed media projects created with Wisteria Lane and Artistic Affirmations stamp sets.

My first is a small decorative hanger.

Materials:
  • Wisteria Lane and Artistic Affirmations stamp sets
  • White board panel (15 X 10cm) and circles (White Board Shapes kit), gold metallic satin card, pink card and turquoise glitter card
  • Decorative lace and border dies
  • Acrylic paints (turquoise, pink, purple)
  • Versamark Inkpad
  • Embossing powders (yellow, pink, purple)
  • Texture paste and gilding wax 
  • Texture stencil 
  • Glossy Accents
  • Scrap lace trim and pink ribbon
  • Faux gems, pearls and sequins
  • Glitter glue and 3D glue gel
  • Variety of small plastic container lids and a straw (for printing)
How it was done:
  1. Texture paste was applied onto the background panel through a stencil.
  2. The white board shapes were coloured with acrylic paints. Plastic lids and a straw were used to print circles. Gilding wax was applied to the edges.
  3. Images were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with coloured powders.
  4. The hanger was extended on the top and base using die cut panels.
  5. Elements were glued down using 3D glue gel for added depth and dimension.
  6. Finished with lace trim, faux gems, sequins and glitter glue for sparkle.

My second is a small canvas.

Materials:
  • Wisteria Lane, Tranquility and Artistic Affirmations stamp sets
  • 20cm square canvas board, white stamping card
  • Embossing powders (yellow, pink, purple) and WOW (Clear Gloss)
  • Viva D├ęcor crackle colour (pearl teal)
  • Ink sprays (pink, teal, purple)
  • Inkpads: StazOn (black), Brilliance Pigment (variegated pink & blue pearl)
  • Sparkle pens (pink, purple)
  • Fine tipped alcohol pen (black)
  • Puffy paint (green)
  • Glossy Accents and silver gilding wax
  • Faux gems and sequins, 3D glue gel
How it was done:
  1. Crackle paste was applied to the outer edges of the canvas and left to dry overnight.
  2. The canvas was spritzed with coloured inks. Some pink spray was also applied so that it sunk into the crackle crevices, excess being removed from the top surfaces with a damp cloth.
  3. Images were stamped onto the background with Brilliance Ink and embossed with clear powder. Floral stems were also stamped onto white card, embossed with coloured powders and cut out for decoupage.
  4. The sentiment was stamped with Stazon and quickly embossed with clear powder. Black pen was used to enhance the sentiment (the canvas is quite textured so detail doesn’t stamp well).
  5. Images were coloured with sparkle pen and floral stems stuck down with 3D glue gel for added depth.
  6. Glossy Accents was added to some of the flower heads, and dotted over the background.
  7. A little silver gilding wax was applied around the canvas edges and over the crackle texture.
  8. Puffy paint was applied along the base of the canvas and heated to give extra texture.
  9. Finished with lots of faux gems and sequins.
