Hello Crafters and Happy Valentine’s Day!
Today I want to show you how I made this quick and easy Mixed Media Tag using two new Stencils and Mediums.
Supplies needed :
- TCW9015 Black Licorice Heavy Body Paint 4 0z.
- TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Paint 4 Oz.
- TCW9020 Raspberry Sorbet Heavy Body Paint 4 Oz.
- TCW9011 Matte Gel Medium
- TCW9025 Palette Knife
- TCW9001 White Gesso
- TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste
- TCW767 Floral Radar
- TCW771 Two Hearts
Note: I am a Design Team member for The Crafter’s Workshop; however, even though I use and love their products, all opinions are solely my own.
I started by covering the background with bits and piece of paper and tissue paper. To glue it down I used Matte Gel Medium. I let it dry completely and then I went over the background with a wash of Gesso to tone it down. I let it dry again.
I mixed the Raspberry Sorbet Heavy body Paint with a bit of Matte Gel Medium to make the color slightly transparent. I used a flat brush to apply the color to the background, I let it dry a bit and then I used another bunch of fluo color to color the background. When I was happy with it I set aside to dry.
I used a make up sponge, Spun Sugar and the new Floral Radar Stencil to add a bit of interest into the background.
I also added a couple of stamps here and there. Then I used my all time favorite Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste, the new Two Hearts stencil and with the palette knife I added a thick layer of texture. I let it air dry because I didn’t want any bubbles and I wanted the edge to be defined.
When it was dry I added a bit of Black Licorice heavy paint that I diluted with a lot of water all around the background. This helped me to create a bit of shades. I did the same thing with the Spun Sugar to add some highlights.
To finish it off I added a bunch of pencil marks and I glued down some small die cuts I had laying on my desk. I also added a stickers for my sentiment.
And that’s all for today, here’s some more photo of my project.
