Hi. Thought I would share something I have been working on over the weekend. I wanted to try doing some mixed media, something which I love the look of, but have never really got right into before. I didn't really know where to start, as after browsing You Tube my head was spinning with so many different ideas. So I thought I'd start with something simple.
I bought a couple of blank mini albums a while back, so decided I'd decorate one for myself. So far I have finished the front cover, and white washed the pages with acrylic paint. I inked a piece of watercolour card with Distress inks, blending purples with blue. I spritzed the whole sheet with water, and shimmer mists. I then brushed some acrylic mixed with Distress ink lightly over this. I cut a panel for the front cover, and also the butterfly and honeycomb die from this one sheet. I added some texture to the front panel with embossing paste, which once dry I then spritzed with more shimmer mists, and then sponged over more of my inks. The edges of the panel and the butterfly were heat embossed with purple metallic embossing powder. I added the stamped sentiment to an offcut of the watercolour card.
Its starting to take shape and so far I am really pleased with the results. Looking forward to getting it all finished and being able to add some special photos inside.
Thanks for stopping by.
