Curiosity- Mixed Media Canvas

Curiosity-Mixed Media Canvas

just sitting playing with whatever was to hand and this is where i ended up.
all supplies available from Louise at thompson craft supplies
for this project i used…….
finnabair tissue paper for my back ground
from my stash i also used crackle paste, thick paste, some distress spray mahogany make unknown, some old book pages, ideaology ephemera pieces.
firstly i pasted town pieces of the old book page and the tissue paper, overlapping , horizontally and vertically, and over onto the sides of the canvas.
i added some white gesso just in patches over and then added some of the mahogany distress spray, i then added some stenciling in places and some oxide spray.
i then added some ephemera,  distressed with clear gesso then distress oxide, layered up and then added my title and flower, i added more ditress oxide on the back ground and inked the edges of the canvas.

Tell Me a Story – Aly

This week I have another little mini scrapbook page with a twist, I have distressed it and folded the corners over for more interest.
I started out by distressing the edges of my paper and then popped some paint splatters in black and white for the background. I gathered all my pieces together and decided on a
pleasing orientation and glued it all down. I’ve added seed beads and sisal for texture and
Hope you like hugs Aly xx

Now is the Right Time Mixed Media Page – Grace

This week I have created a fun mixed media project using some AB Studio packaging as my base (I always keep stuff like that, you never know when it’ll come in useful or inspire you!)

The part that says ‘be creative every day’ is part of the packaging – so I stuck some cheap (read: not very sticky) washi tape over it while I worked on the rest of the project, so that when I was nearly done I could peel the tape off and still have the phrase showing.

I love the way the project is built up over the phrase, rather than being on top (as words and phrases are usually one of the last things you add). It’s definitely a technique I’ll try again in the future.

The full process for this project can be watched in an accompanying video on my YouTube channel here.

Dont Overthink It – Aly

I think sometimes we overthink when we look at a piece of paper and try to decide what we are going to make and sometimes its just nice to have a rummage in the scraps box and pull out some bits and have a play and see what we can come up with, so that is what I did!

You will need –
Craft O’clock Dream Shadow Paper Pack sheet # 2
Black and white paint for splatters
Gold paint for splatters
A mirror stamp onto thick greyboard Ggreyboard swirls
Rose and leaf molds
Mirri board for the mirror

I have splattered my backing paper with black and white paint and some gold.
Colour a doiley with gold paint and pop it behind the mirror, create the orientation you would like and stick it down. I had all these bits and pieces on my desk as they were left overs from other projects and I thought the”Dont overthink it” sentiment was just great for me too.

Hope you enjoy the project and have a go at something yourself
Hugs Aly xx

Mixed Media Canvas

Lorna here.I was feeling a bit meh yesterday,
just couldn’t get into any sort of mood to do anything, crafty or otherwise, wanted to create but it wasn’t coming, i got as far as adding the string , some paste through a stencil and hessian to this canvas and that was it, full stop.
so i asked Louise to give me some prompts, she did this before for me and it worked great…..so Louise said……
Lady-brown/pink-leaves and wood
so this is what i came up with….
some twigs on the left hand side, on top of my hessian and string!
then i layered up some cogs, a huge leaf and some smaller ones, a clock face and a feather all in mdf.
i gesso’d it then painted it all brown, added some pink mixed media ink and water to get it all moving around, after some messing and lots of drying i was happy with the colours, i then added some dry brushed bronze paint.
then my picture, girl rather than lady but lets not be picky lol
and some brown flowers.
finished off with some watered down bronze paint splatters.
its a lot brighter IRL but i just cant get the colours to show up well in these photos!!!
