Growing In Unity Day 3 – Mixed Media Projects

Hello everyone… It is Day 3 of the Growing in Unity Girl post. Today, I have couple of mixed media projects to share with you all.

First mixed media project is a card. I use the Feather Soft Love stamp set and the Eloise Girl stamp set. It is a very simple mixed media card, with spray paints, embossing, and pigment inks.

I started with stamping the feathers with VersaMark ink pad on a watercolor paper, sprinkled some black glitter embossing powder, and then heat it up with craft heater.

I put the paper in a box and then start sprayed it with blue, teal, purple Marabu Mixed Media Spray Paints. I also sprayed some water to blend the colors. I dried it with craft heater. I trimmed it into 4.25″ x 5.5″ card. I added it on a white card with E-Z Runner Grand Adhesive.

On a white cardstock, I stamped the sentiment with Purple Delight pigment ink, dried it with craft heater, and then I cut it with one of the Circle Dies. I added the sentiment on the card with 3D foam tape and added some matching colors sequins.

This second project, is a mixed media art journal. On this page, I use Insightful Meadows stamp set and Wild & Free stamp set.

On the mixed media page, I added some white gesso with palette knife, and while it was still kindda wet, I stamped it with bubble wrap plastic. I dried it quickly with craft heater. The tricky part drying gesso with craft heater, if it gets too hot, it gets bubbly. So… try to move the craft heater around and keep it on distance so it won’t be too hot.

After the page was dry, I spread a thin layer of the yellow and red acrylic paint with brayer. I dried it again with craft heater (be careful, acrylic paints is the same with gesso). And then, I added some red cherry gelato and lemon gelato, then blended them with my finger. I also created that moon with coconut gelato that I scribbled the circle on the page and smoothed it with finger.

Next step, I stamped the flowers with Pinecone VersaFine Clair ink pad with first and second generation stamping technique. I covered the bottom page to create the flower border silhouette. And I dried the whole page with craft heater again to make sure the pigment ink dried well.

  1. I love them both, but the bottom one is sooo lovely. I don’t use things such as paste or gesso, but seeing how beautiful and I am sure how textural it is, I might give it a shot.

  2. Both projects are gorgeous! I especially love it when the projects use stamps I already have so I can try them sooner!

  3. Both are just gorgeous, Helen! I love the color combo used with the feathers.
