Today I have two winter projects to share with you. One is a card and the other piece once I get a frame will be a holiday decoration. Both projects utilize experimentation which fulfills one of my crafting goals to try new things. As well as to marry stamping with mixed media.
Here is my first. Now to make a dash to thrift stores to find a frame. Which will determine what size mat I'll be mounting it on. Another goal was to use what I have on hand. The base for this is from a box which has been cluttering up my play area.
For this piece besides the cardboard I used gesso, paint, alcohol markers, ink and color pencils along with of course Just For Fun rubber stamps and my die cutting machine. Of course being the glitter queen I had to use glitter. Images were colored with pencils that seem to mostly gather dust. Oh and let's not forget that inexpensive tissue wrapping paper. I seem to be using it a lot lately. I love the effect I got with the tissue paper airbrushed with a marker and adhered over the painted cardboard.
