Mixed Media

Over the weekend I was feeling inspired by something other than cards... that seems to be the case lately anyway! As I sat down to paint with my kiddos and one of their friends, I was suddenly inspired to create a mixed media piece... my first ever I think! Check it out:

I love the way it turned out! I started by painting a background on the canvas in my favourite colours. Since I was just fooling around and didn't quite know what I wanted to do, I headed to my stamp wall for inspiration. I stared until something jumped out at me - my Flower Patch stamp set. Do you ever do that when you need inspiration? Anyway, I began by stamping my larger flower with white paint, followed by the smaller flowers & sentiment in ink. I just kept adding until I was happy.

To spice it up a notch, I added some copper accents. I lightly rubbed my VersaMark pad throughout the background and along the edges. For the white flowers, I used my VersaMark Pen so that I could get the powder exactly where I wanted it. Lastly, I stamped the smallest flower on top of the other flowers that I stamped in ink and then heat those up.

What do you think?

Until next time, stay crafty!
