I have a permanent smile right now from all the fun I had creating this next project to share with all of you.
I have admired all of the beautiful Mixed Media projects I have seen over the course of the last year of blogging and was excited to try a bit of it for myself.
First: I sprayed my Perfect Pearl Mist directly onto the Kraft tag and dried it with my heating tool.
Then I used my homemade mixture of Vermillion glimmer mist.
For the next step, I randomly stamped some flowers onto the tag using Vintage Photo ink. After that, I randomly stamped the sentiment onto the tag using the same ink. I grabbed a few paper scraps from my stash and inked up the little girl with her umbrella onto cream texture cs, diagonal stripe dp, and a yellow flower pattern dp. I cut all the pieces out to paper piece together onto the cream cs.
I stamped the sentiment onto cream cs using Vintage Photo, then added the embossing powder and heat set it. I fussy cut around the sentiment and then spritzed it with some homemade green glimmer mist. I prepped my paints and added a few roses and lace directly to the tag.
I placed foam squares behind the girl for added dimension.
I trimmed the umbrella with glossy accents, highlighted her boots with a black gel pen, handpainted the grass, used orange watercolors to paint the flower on the sentiment tag, and added all the embellishments to finish it off.
I was inspired by and will enter the following challenges . . . .
