Clear Scraps | Christmas Nativity Mixed Media Acrylic Tag

Hello everyone… Today I have a Nativity mixed media acrylic tag to share with you all. I hope it is not to early for Christmas project!

For my tag today, I use one of the tags from the Acrylic Tag Album. All Clear Scrap acrylic sheets, acrylic tags, and shaker plastic cover have clear plastic covers to protect the surfaces.

I removed the clear plastic covers from both sides of the tag, and then I covered the acrylic tag surface with the mod podge (gel medium will work well, too for this step).

I added the old hymnal music page on the tag and then cover it again with the mod podge and let it dried well.

After surface dried well, I trimmed the extra paper with scissors.

I covered the surface randomly with metallic paste (gold and silver), and I also added some white gesso.

When the that paste and white gesso layer dried well, I covered the whole tag with Glitter mod podge for some sparkle look on it (I really wish the camera can capture it!). Then let it sit to dry.

If you are not patient enough waiting each layer of medium to dry, you can dry them with craft heater, but have to be very very very careful to not be over heated becuase the acrylic tag can bend or the paste can be bubbly.

Next step, I put the 4×6 Nativity stencil on top of the tag and I taped it down so it would not move around when I added the modeling paste.

I added the Black Ice Metallix Gel on the stencil just on the navitity image.

On the craft mat, I mixed some fine iridescent glitter with the white modeling paste. Then I added the paste on the stars above the nativity image.

I put the 6×6 Ice Crystal Snowflakes Stencil at the bottom of the nativity image and I added some of the mixed glitter paste on it too.

I set the tag aside and let the paste to dry while I worked on the extra embellishment pieces.

I cut out some green and red cardstock using the holly leaves swirl and berries dies from A Jillian Vance Design. Then, I printed the digital sentiment from Graciellie Design on a white cardstock, and cut it with the oval stitched die.

I added all the extra pieces on top of the tag, right bellow the nativity with 3-in-1 Beacon adhesive and some 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

I hope this will give you more ideas for your Holidays projects. It is coming soon for sure! Visit Clear Scraps store to check on what’s new!

Hello hello hello everyone… Here in the United States, Autumn Season will officially be here on September 22nd. I love watching the leaves changing colors. They are beautiful in their own ways. Today, I would love to share my gold maple leaf shaker card.

Blast Birthday Mixed Media Card

Hello hello hello… Thank Goodness It Is Friday! I hope you all are doing well… Today, I would love to share this blast birthday mixed media card.

I am playing with color blending, embossing and paint splatters.

I had fun creating the background usingVersaFine Clair Ink Pads: Blue Belle, Purple Delight, Tulip Red, Summertime, Green Oasis, and Nocturne. I picked the ink up with make up sponge, and started sponging it on a Neenah solar white cardstock. I blended the colors as I go.

I dried the galaxy background with craft heater when I was done adding those inks. Since these are super juicy pigment inks, I dried it longer to make sure no more wet ink for the next step.

I treated the background panel with anti-static powder tool for heat embossing. I stamped the stars and dots images randomly on the galaxy background panel from Out Of This World stamp set (Joy Clair) with VersaMagic Cloud White using MISTI. I stamped them couple times to get bolder look. And while the ink still wet, I sprinkled them with Mboss Embossing Powder Sparkle, and then heat it up with craft heater.

After that, I added more whita splatters on the galaxy background panel using white acrylic paint, little bit of water and fan brush. I set the background panel aside to dry.

Next step, I stamp the rocket ship, astronout, and sentiment using MISTI with VersaFine Clair Nocturne on a piece of Neenah solar white cardstock. I dried them with craft heater.

On the craft mat, I dabbed some of the the Memento DewDrop Cantaloup, Bahama Blue, Lady Bug and London Fog. Using wet small round brush, I colored the images. YUP! I did watercoloring with Memento DewDrop. It was fun!!!

After watercoloring, I dried them all and then I fussy cut the rocketship and astronout with scissors.

I trimmed the finished galaxy background panel into 4″ x 5.25″ and I added it on an 4.25″ x 5.5″ white card using TapeRunner adhesive. Next, I trimmed the sentiment into a rectangle and added it on the card with 3D foam. Then, I added the rest images with 3D foam, too.

I did have much fun creating this blast birthday mixed media card. I hope this bring a smile on your face, too.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you all stay safe and healthy!

Clear Scraps | Mixed Media Art Journal – Peace and Be Still

Hello everyone! I hope you all are well and safe. Today I would like to share with you a new page of my mixed media art journal, Peace and Patience.

These two words speak loud in my heart lately, especially in my recovery journey and this uncertain time. God reminds me to be patience and be still in Him. He will give us hope and strength while waiting for Him in faith.

I am sharing a step-by-step tutorial with pictures at Clear Scraps Blog today so that you also can create it.

On my art journal page, I used Clear Scraps Stencils:

I got this new Zinnia Stencil a couple of moths ago and I knew it was time to use it for my art journal this month. When I work with stencils, I like to spray my stencils with Pixie Spray.

For the background, I used the Arteza Gouache (Silver, Yellow Ochre,Emerald Green, and Cerulean Blue) and White Gesso. I applied them on the page with the brayer.

I also used the Teal Woody Stabillo Watercolor Crayon and Black Woody Stabillo Watercolor Crayon on the page. I used a wet round brush to blend the colors and while still wet, I tilted up the journal to get some drips on the page. I dried the watercolor paint with craft heater.

And then, I added some old hymnal paper strips on the page using permanent glue stick. After that, I used a flat brush to apply some more white gesso on the paper stripes to blend them in.

I used the 6″ Zinnia Stencil. I applied some DecoFoil Aged Copper Metallix Gel with pallet knife. I carefully removed the stencil and carefully drying the gel with craft heater. But the best way is to let it air dry.

I added the 6″ Fruit of the Spirit on the page, and I used post it tape to mask the other letters around the word “Patience.” I added the VersaFine Clair Nocturne Pigment Ink on the stencil using foam dauber. I removed the stencil carefully because the pigment ink was still wet. After that I dried the ink with craft heart.

I repeated the same step for the next words, “Be Still” using the 3×12 Peace Be Still Border Stencil.

I added more flowers and leaves around the page to fill up the white space.

I added some white highlight around the Zinnia flower in the middle of the page using the White Woody Stabillo Watercolor Crayon and wet brush.

For more texture on the page, I added some paint splatters using Marabu Mixed Media Art Spray Cocoa and White Spray that I made my own. I dried the whole page carefully one more time with craft heater.

I hope this project give you an idea to create today. Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today. Have a wonderful day, crafty friends!
