Mixed Media Inspirational Card


Thank you for stopping by today.
 I've combined several challenges into this beautiful card.

My jumping off point was Mono Printing with Paper Artsy. 2016 Topic 9.
Gelli Plate backgrounds are my favorite thing to create!

I love layering several stencils with different colors of acrylic paint. If you let each layer dry before adding the next layer-you can get a really nice background.

My next challenge was to use monochromatic colors with Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge #140.

Craft Stamper Magazine is running anything goes! As long as you use a stamp.  I've used one of my new favorites from Our Daily Bread called On Eagles Wings. 
Our Daily Bread challenge is to use flowers. They were incorporated in my gelli plate background using a stencil.

One of my favorite challenges is weekly with Word Art Wednesday.  This week is anything goes.

 I've also used Deco Art Acrylic paint: Ultramarine Blue, Sapphire Blue and Whispering Turquoise.
Deco Art stencil: French Script.
Plaid stencil: daisies
White Satin Ribbon.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
