Hello there everyone!! Today is my turn on The Crafter’s Workshop bog, and I am sharing a mixed media layout I created to teach on a crafting cruise I recently just got home from. So let me show you how I created this layout.
To begin with I lightly coated my patterned cardstock with TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte and once dried I then applied TCW9001 White Gesso in a diamond shape using my spatula. Then I stamped a text stamp using versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Next I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals – Industrial Chic to add colour to my background. I used a small paint brush and water for this which I find gives me more control.
Next I used TCW202s Harlequin stencil with Ranger Crackle Medium. I used a heat tool to dry and the added some stamping using black archival ink. I also added some splattering to the background using water and white gesso.
Using the same 3 colours above, I smoosh 4 cards that I cut from the some pattern cardstock into the magicals. This creates a grungy type feel. I then distress the edges and create a photo mount cluster for my photo.
Next I applied TCW9001 White Gesso to the paper straws and Dusty Attic Chipboard. I then painted the chipboard with TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Acrylic Paint. I also used this paint to splatter the background and to paint onto the back of the Prima Melange Art Pebbles.
For the paper straws, I painted the Steampunk Sepia magical onto it and then cut to size. I also added the left over magical mix to the flowers. Then I adhered all the layers onto the cardstock and added some beads to finish off the layout.
Here are some close ups of the layout.
Thanks for stopping by and I will be back soon with another project

Hi Everyone Farrel here and today I am sharing another mixed media tag with you all. I have process shot so sit back and relax while to take you through on how I created this.
I had so much fun creating this tag, I have only recently discovered my new found love when I created the Christmas Tag last month and I have decided to create tags for everything now!!! lol
To start of I used the Tim Holtz large Tag Die cut out my chipboard tag. I then covered the tag using some patterned paper I found in my stash. I applied a light coverage of Gel Matte Medium (TCW) and once dried I then used TCW804 Mesh Blocks stencil with some sand texture paste.
Once the paste was dry, I then added some stamping using Black Archival Ink and a Finnabair stamp.
Then I used the 3 LSG magicals in the picture to build up my background colours. I love how the sand texture paste looks with these colours added to it.
Next I coated my Dusty Attic chipboard and a metal flower with white gesso. I did cut the Industrial Corner and the Cyclone Wire to fit the tag.
I then decided to use Finnabair’s Rust Effect Paste on the chipboard pieces and the metal flower. I also used Sepia Archival Ink to cover the ticket chipboard.
I used TCW Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Acrylic Paint on the Prima Flowers and once all the pieces were adhered, I then added some Sisal, Mica Flakes and some beads.
