Clear Scraps | Peace Mixed Media Shaker Card

Hello everyone… I hope you all are doing well this season… It is still Summer here and I am dreaming of peaceful beach these days.

I grew up in a tropical country and my hometown is surrounded by ocean. We literally can just go to the beach by the side of the road. I miss my hometown a lot. It is inspired me to make this peace mixed media shaker card.

I am sharing this mixed media shaker card at Clear Scraps Blog, too.

I painted the beach shoreline with watercolor paint on a 140 lbs watercolor paper for the background. For me, painting is relaxing. I dried the finished painting with craft heater for faster drying process but you can let it air-dry.

I used the 3 x 12 Peace be still Stencil for the sentiment. I taped the stencil on top of the watercolor paper with some low-tack ThermOWeb purple tape, and then I used sponge dauber to add the Imagine Crafts White pigment ink on it. After that, carefully I peeled off the tape and dried the pigment ink with craft heater.

I added the finished background on the 5×7 card base with TapeRunner adhesive.

I painted the Mini Shaker Flip Flops with acrylic paints and small round detail brush. I used teal and white paints.

After the paints dried, I stacked them together with strong permanent adhesive glue and I put a heavy book on top until the glue dried.

After the glued dried, I added some of the giant irridescent sequins in the middle of the flip flop. I removed the clear film plastics from the acetate (all Clear Scrapes acetate plastic have protected clear films on both sides) and then I added the acetate plastic on top of the flip flop with strong adhesive glue. Then I added the last piece of the flip flop and the metal flowers on the flip flop with strong adhesive glue, and carefully I put the heavy book on top of it until the glue dried well.

I added the finished shaker flip flop on the card with the TapeRunner adhesive.

I hope this card cheers you all up today! Thank you so much for stopping by.

  1. Awesome card Helen! LOVE your watercoloured beach background but it’s those flip-flops that are so amazing. What a great idea to make your flip-flops into a shaker card. Love the colours! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!

  2. Great pair of flip flops with all that shine. Love the monochromatic theme to your beach card and the beautiful gradation achieved for the background. Would have been nice to see more white space. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up!
