The mixed media concept itself can be a little bit intimidating if you are not familiar with the mediums or simply because you don’t like to get your working area messy (let’s be real: more than normal). Well, maybe it can get a bit messier, but that doesn’t take the fun part away. Once you start, it is hard to stop creating. I have to say that what I really like is that even though you are working on an specific project and you have something in mind, in the process you end up creating more pretty stuff and at the end, nothing is wasted. Since you can create many backgrounds, and even though you don’t use them right away, it will save you time to create another project another day. Anyhow, today I am sharing a card that I created using one of those extra backgrounds that I created a couple weeks ago using some mixed media products…
The background was created using the Circle Bliss stencil along with Citrus Cooler and Sweet Berry acrylic paints. I also used Modeling paste, Oatmeal Cookie acrylic paint and the Flower Power stencil, just to add an extra detail over the already pretty background.
To create the flowers, I die cut the Colorful Bloom dies from Oatmeal Cookie cardstock and I stamped the Grid Paper and Lace Background stamps on them with Outrageous Pink ink. I added a pierced detail, a stitched circle, a sentiment, cut rhinestones, natural twine and a couple of brush silver staples.
