Mixed Media: Stamping with Deco Art

Love mixed media but don't know how to start?
Grab a canvas or piece of MDF.
 
I glued down ripped pieces of a Paris themed calendar using gel medium. Once dry, cover in a watered down coat of off white acrylic paint. Dry. (when drying you can let air dry or use heat tool)
 I rubbed Phthalo Green-Blue around the edge with my finger. (Yes-I like getting messy!) Rub a little Carbon Black over top of that.  Then I mixed some Dazzling Metallics glaze in with Raw Umber and covered the whole thing-rub some back off with a soft t-shirt (recycled). Gives a great antique feel with a slight shimmer.
 I did some stenciling, some stamping (use black stazon) and did an image transfer.
 More stamping using Deco Art Media Simmer Mister (Violet) mixed with Acrylic Red Violet.
 Had made some flowers by stamping on Glossy Photo paper and using a watercolor technique with Deco Art Media Shimmer Misters.  Fussy cut them and added to canvas with dimensionals.

Stamped my girl (Unity Stamps) and colored her with Tradition Acrylic paints.

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
