This is my second piece of mixed media art. I used gesso, paper squares for the background, Jane Davenport faces paper, diecuts of various brands. Tattered lace castle die and Heartfelt Creations dies for the flower.
Yesterday I watched mixed media YouTube’s the whole day. In the evening I got these two pages started and I completed them today. They are really colorful. For me it is very different to have a “messy” type of work but it is really fun and creative to do. I placed both of them in a journal.
The texture work was created on cardstock and the paper faces are Jane Davenport. The composition was my own.
Well, it seems as if one moves from one craft to the other as the mind expands by trying out different craftsand finding even more lovely things to do.
So, today I watched YouTube videos about mixed media and was excited about this one by Maremi’s SmallArt. She gave a wonderful lesson as well as some lovely philosophies about craft.
If the video does not run here you can find it on YouTube. Maremi’s SmallArt “1 texture 3 ideas”.
This bottle was embellished with Heartfelt creations Paper and diecuts. The lady is cut out of sticky glitter foam using the Tattered Lace Art Deco lady.
i decided to make some decoupage bottles using the Art Deco theme. I made flowers from HeartfeltCreations dies. The Art Deco ladies are Tattered Lace Dies.
I received some great fabric for repurposing from the clothes company XCVI. #xcvidiy. I made the sofa by using the fabric, tissue box, filling and a glue gun. You can find all kinds of sofa designs for dolls on YouTube. The pillow and green rug were made with embroidery designs for an electronic sewing machine but could quite easily be done by hand with alternative designs.
Free standing lace is made with an electronic machine embroidery machine and software with a design of one’s choice. This design is a lovely butterfly being made by the machine.
Using Indian cotton paper I made these flowers. I wanted a different texture to experiment with. The flowers came out quite nicely. I used stamens on wire. Tip. Use hot glue to glue paper and wire.
A new diecut and stamp from Stamping Bella. It is so cute. I really enjoyed coloring the picture and creating this little birthday card.
i have made so many cards, and given them away, and so I have decided to make a journal with the gallery of my Art Deco cards. So I will be posting these over the next so many months until I move on to something else.
This little card came out rather unexpectedly and I am so pleased with the outcome that I am going to keep this card for future copying. I was practicing coloring using a Penny Black stamp and then die cut it with a random shaped die. The rose is a Stamps by Judith design.
These cards were made with Stampin Up cardstock. The stamps and dies of the hanging basket are from Heartfelt Creations. Simple and sweet.
This commissioned card was made for a special mom turning 80. Happy Birthday. Made with Tattered Lace dies, flowers from Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies. Spellbinders lace border dies added. I made a box for its delivery.
Sewing, machine embroidery, paper-craft, and stamping are my hobbies. At the moment die-cutting paper craft is my favorite, and I am sharing my projects with you on this website.
