Journey Mixed Media Layout for Dusty Attic

Hi Everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas Day with all your family and friends. Today I am sharing my DT project for Dusty Attic with this mixed media layout I created which would be perfect for any travel photos you may have taken over the Christmas holidays.

My background paper is by 13@rts His & Her Range and I added some watered down black gesso as my focal point. I used Dusty Attic’s Arrows Stencil with some white gesso for the background. The film strip I found in my stash and I think it may have been on of Kaisercraft’s acetate sheets.

All the chipboard pieces I painted with white gesso, the Polaroid chipboard I added some crackle paste and then used Distress Oxide Ink pads for colour. I also added the same inks to the large tag and Chain Circles.

I stamped and fussy cut some images from Tim Holtz stamp set The Professor. I then used black archival ink to colour the Ticket, compass and blueprint title.

For my tag I did use a chipboard tag and adhered “Flight” patterned paper. I applied some crackle medium to the background and then used Art Anthology’s Colorations Spray – Patience over the top. I then stamped a script stamp randomly over the sprayed area with black archival ink.

I the heart and word “Dreamer” are from the collections quotes and elements sheet. I applied some glossy accents to the word Dreamer. I used resin wings, key and stars and painted them with Art Alchemy Sparks paint and then highlighted with a wax.

I stamped the butterflies and coloured them using Distress Oxide Ink. To finish the tag I added an assortment of flowers, micro beads, art stones and sisal. I just love how this tag turned out.

Thanks for dropping by and I can’t wait to show you my next project real soon.

One of a Kind Tag – Art Anthology

Hi there my crafty followers, today I am up on the Art Anthology Blog with this Mixed Media tag. There is a process video located at the end of the blog so please feel free to click on it to watch me in action xx.

I started my tag by using Stone Effects – Bone with Art Nuveau stencil. After drying with my heat tool, I then added white gesso and also applied some crackled paste.

Once dry and all my elements on the tag have been adhered and covered with white gesso, I then applied Colorations Color Spray – Siesta Key. Next I used Minx Shimmering Ink – Panache on the background and used a little bit of water to help the ink spread around the tag.

 

After the ink has dried, I then spray Colorations Color Spray Peacock Feathers to create some depth to the tag. To break up some of the blue on the tag, I then used Rust Texture Set on some of the elements on the tag.

 

After adhering my chipboard butterfly, I then added Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent. Then to finish off the tag, I added the gold paste from Rust Texture Set to highlight.
