All I Want for Christmas is YOU

Hello!!! I want to share with you my second project with the December Limited Edition kit by My Creative Scrapbook that is featuring: Carousel Christmas by Bo Bunny, also some Vintage Christmas 2 papers by Blue Fern Studios, Creative Embellishments chipboards, Prima Marketing products, Lindy's gang and much more.. I love the soft colors in the Carousel collection and that aren't the conventional Christmas colors. I gave a coat of gel medium to this light green paper then I added textures with the kit' stencil and modeling paste. I painted it with the Lindy's gang pink mist. The lovely photo is from Unsplash.  I cut out flowers from the papers and mixed with the Prima flowers to create the cluster. I painted the small oval frame chipboard with metallic gold watercolor. I cut out these embellishments from one of the papers and adhered them on the top right of the page. I adhered some art stones and glass beads to give more textures.

Mixed Media Canvas & Video Tutorial - Stamperia

Hello scrapper friends! I have a canvas project and the video tutorial to share with you today in collaboration with Stamperia .  I received a box with their fantastic products and these adorable angels catch my eyes that It is one of their new molds to use with the soft clay.  I started making the figures with their soft clay (that it's very easy to work with ) and two different molds. You should let it dry for 24 hours but I only waited four hours and removed them from the molds to adhere over the canvas with gel medium and let it dry overnight. But before, I gave textures with a stencil and the Textures sand paste then I adhered the pieces and applied crackled paste . Let's take a look a all the details.... Supplies: Stamperia Soft Clay, Wooden Shapes, flowers, stencil, Crackled Paste, Textured Sand Paste, Acrylic Paints Enjoy the Video Tutorial... Thanks for stopping by...until next time! Hugs!

Holiday Mixed Media techniques featuring Carousel Christmas

Hello!!  I share with you today a holiday mixed media layout with the gorgeous Carousel Christmas collection and products by BoBunny and Pentart.   I started giving textures to my base paper (Joy) with the Winter Fun Stickable Stencil and the Sugar Glitter Paste. It created bright snowflakes on the background, then I added white paint splatters. The Joy paper has a few spots of yellow paint, so I created more yellow spots on the background with a mix of Pentart Acrylic Gold paint and Gesso Primer Paste. I used the Happy Holidays as my title and to enhance it,  I cut the pink banner from the Floral paper and adhered it behind the quote with foam tape. I draped the Joy paper and place under the believe paper. To make the project more interesting I tied a white cord to the jingle bells. I made some dots with the Pearlecents to create more textures on the background. I applied with a paintbrush the Gold Confetti Paste on the background and added pieces
