Mixed Media Layout : Dream Imagine

Hello all,

I am not a big mixed media artist but slowly and steadily I am trying my hands on this craft style.
Whenever I get an opportunity to do mixed media I try to give my best.

Today I have made a mixed media layout with two strong sentiments DREAM and IMAGINE.
Together they make it happen what you want to do in reality.

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.--William Arthur Ward

I have first used font stencil on the base paper and also added a criss cross design with fiber paste
Painted the clock with cinnamon metallic color.  I then distressed the edges of  all the papers ..On another burlap paper I heat embossed the clock design with embossing texture paste, Then added criss cross stencil design on the brick paper. Heat embossed the sentiments with embossing texture paste . Finally tucked cheese cloth, several layers of pieces of pattern paper and added few flowers.

Supplies used
Texture brew PP
Mixed media Paste
Embossing Texture Paste
Fiber Paste
Cinnamon Metallic Color
Cheese cloth
Mdfs : Clock, Dream Imagine, Wall

Hope you all like my small project.
Happy Crafting

Mini Booklet Album

Hello crafters,
Here I am to review this beautiful paper.
First of all thank you Anitha for sending over these papers and trusting in me. When the papers first came I was just about to travel so I promised Anitha that I will do the review as soon as I am back but my plan got delayed at our Kochi airport were closed for a long time because of floods in Kerala. So as soon as I was back I took out these beautiful papers and started my project. Never knew a succulent themed paper will be so gorgeous and with such lovely pun love sentiments. I just fell in love with these. The pack contains 12 sheets of 12” * 12”. About the quality of the papers it is very smooth to cut through any paper-cutter and fuzzy cut by hand. At 160gsm it’s just right to make scrapbooks, cards, tags or anything. After adhering to the base paper it does make the album heavy on weight. The papers stick to the base cardstock without leaving any crease and wrinkles. The prints are simply awesome. Color combinations are just superb. You don’t need additional embellishments as the pack contains element sheet which can be fuzzy cut and the project can be embellished. The best are the sentiments they are just cute, adorable and romantic if I may say so.  You should definitely try these papers in your project and surprise your dear one with its sentiments.
If I have to sum this paper in one sentence then it would be:
“ This  paper is ‘PRICKY’ amazing “
Team Itsy Bitsy “A crafter’s life would SUCC without you “
“Hey now I’m STUCK with you.”
Hehehe … sorry with all the picky lines, guess I’m carried away with the sentiments. On a serious note the papers are simply beautiful. Go for it.

 I have here made a mini booklet album with pockets with 7 photo-mats. The size of the album is 4.75" * 5.75". The album has 3 pages.  All supplies from Itsy Bitsy. Thank you once again Team Itsy Bitsy.

Supplies Used

Little birdie Succulent Garden PP
Black cardstock

Thank you everyone for stopping by.

Mixed Media Reverse Canvas frame

Hello friends,
I present to you a mixed media reverse canvas frame .
This was my first try for out an out mixed media canvas.
Was really apprehensive at first but was quite happy with the outcome.
Will make more often as I quite liked the whole process.

I tied a cord on the bigger canvas and then attached the reversed smaller canvas .
Applied gesso and then arranged the metals , chippies , laces, corrugated torn sheets, mdf sentiments.
With stencils, cheese cloth I added texture to the frame.
After everything was stuck I sprayed different colors on the white background . (forgot to click the pic) now after heat drying the whole canvas i painted everything with black gesso and then highlighted everything with inka gold.

I hope you also like the canvas as much as I loved making it.
happy Crafting.
