I am seeing more and more mixed media. Even SplitcoastStampers has a mixed media challenge now!
Well...I have been a little slow to jump on this band wagon. I really love looking at all of the beautiful mixed media creations in blog land. I checked out a couple of YouTube videos and saw this video and thought I would give it a try. This is what I came up with:
I was very pleased with how these cards turned out!
I sketched a cake on a piece of white card stock. I cut strips of different designer papers and used ModgePodge to adhere them to the sketch on the card stock. I then brushed ModgePodge over the entire cake. Let it dry, then cut it out. When dry, I stamped the cake with various stamps in black Archival Ink. I used Distress markers to shadow the layers. And used a FaberCastell Pitt Pen to outline the layers. Added some buttons and bows and bling...tada!!!
I am definitely gonna try this mixed media again and go a little bolder each time!
A little Gesso, a little splatter.
First cards....then GASP!!!...canvas????? Who knows?
Thanks for stopping by!
