Mixed Media Journal Cover

                                                                       Hello Friends!
I am currently enjoying mixed media, thanks to the Finnabair products that came in my LetzCRaft DT kit. The combination of black & metallic colors always enthuse me & the Metallique wax pastes are just perfect for popping the hidden textures in Mixed Media.
Here is the mini journal cover which got a face lift for my post –

The cover base is MDF & the background texture is stenciled (Craftangles – Medieval Mosaic) with Decoart sand paste. I built on the layers & textures & embellished as desired, priming with black gesso at every stage & using Ranger Multimedium to glue the embellishments. The Finnabair Metallique pastes used are – Amethyst Magic & Mystic Turquoise

Here are some close up images -

Playing along the following challenges - 

Hope you enjoyed the post today & are inspired to create some Mixed Media magic!

Decoupage Mixed Media Canvas

Hello Friends!
 I am loving the new range of Bob N Betty decopatch papers - very high quality 50gsm papers, a dream for all decoupage artists. You can check my previous posts with this awesome release here & here.

These papers are very thin & blend easily into the background to give a seamless finish, they truly do! Check the canvas I share today -

Stay with me as I take you through the steps to combine decoupage & mixed media to create unique wall decor for your homes.
The USP of these papers is the ease with which you can use them on surfaces, just like rice papers & tissues. To highlight this I started by creating a textured base for the 12x12 canvas.

Next I fussy cut a section (OLD WORLD CHARM sheet) & also some elements from the FLORAL ADORNMENTS sheet. I decided on the layout & decoupaged them on the textured canvas.

Here is a close up to show how easily it blends on the textured background.

Next I colored the canvas with coordinating chalk paints.

Some random stencilling & stamping over the textures -

To add some more textures I stenciled clear crackle paste on the edges & added some paste with the palette knife too.

To finish the canvas I splattered acrylic paint.  The Crackle paste dries clear over the textures to reveal the background through. the cracks, perfect for the image I selected! Spray with acrylic varnish to seal the canvas.

 You can grab these papers from any of our Sales Buddies   &  share your gorgeous creations using Bob n Betty papers with us on our facebook group Bob n Betty Buddies. 
Thank you for visiting & happy crafting!

Reverse Decoupage & Mixed Media Altered Bottle

I am here with an interesting decoupage project today, which is also my DT inspiration for the LETZ CRAFT BLOG.

I love altering bottles with decoupage & hoard a lot of them in different shapes & sizes, one such flat bottle was perfect for reverse decoupage - a technique in which the tissue is glued to the back of the glass & the front is left clear.

I textured the backside (where the tissue is adhered) with Plaid FolkArt Painted Finishes Kit - Concrete (this product is currently out of stock, you can preorder here)

I played around with embellishments from my stash & textured them all with the concrete textured finish. Sprayed the layout with Lindys Stamp Gang Startburst - Black Orchid Silver. Added some Decoart Crackle paste on the sides. Once dry I highlighted all the textures with Finnabair Metallique wax - Red amber & Rose gold.
Here are some close ups of the Mixed Media -

Do you see the crackle effect here -

More than words Challenge (lots of memories assocaited with this bottle & no better way to preserve those by altering it!)- 31.5

Thanks for stopping by today & have a crafty week!
