Mixed Media Tag - "Watercolor Flower"

I made this background a few month's back following a tutorial by DeeDee Catron. I liked it so much, I decided to recreate it on a tag.



 
One of my favorite techniques is using stamps to create watercolor paintings. The trick is to stamp the image with a light colored water-soluble ink, then color it with watercolors. I really like how this flower from the Tim Holtz Flower Garden Stamp Set turned out. It really looks like I painted it myself!


Be sure to click the links above to check out DeeDee's tutorial as well as my journal page if you haven't seem them! Also, the complete supply list is linked at the bottom of this post.

 I was going to add a little word sticker, but I like the flower image so much I wanted it to stand out on it's own.
 Another of my favorite techniques: using different drywall tapes and texture paste thru stencils for texture, then going over it with a glaze to catch all the cracks and crevices.


THANKS FOR LOOKING!

Our Mixed Media Moods "Trust"

We are back, baby! DeeDee and I took a little break but we are back with our monthly collab "Our Mixed Media Moods.

Every month one of us creates a mood board and then we create projects based on that mood board. We also create detailed process videos of our projects.

So without further ado....

Here is this month's mood board!
We are using transparent layers, transparency, fabric, stitching, text, vintage book text, wood, fibers, vintage sewing patterns, tissue paper, machine sewing, encaustic, weaving, scribbles and mark making, browns, tans, whites, creams, vintage colors

For my project I used a lot of elements from the board. I started with using the color scheme. I also used transparent layers and book text.

I used some resin papers and machine sewing. I even tried hand stitching. I stitched my chipboard word with white embroidery thread. I also tried some French knots under my main cluster. 

I used the "trust" chipboard piece as my wood element because it looked a …

"Create Joy" || Mini Junk Journal

I have the first page in my mini junk journal to share today!

It is on ledger paper which I made sure to cover with clear gesso so the paper would hold up. it is a very Dina Wakley-esque page, with a splot of Dylusions Ink and some magenta paint. It came together very quickly, which is exactly what I wanted for this 'art everyday' venture.

To see exactly how I made it, you can watch the process video at the end of this post. There is also a complete supply list with links to everything I used on this page.
