I’m loving these Dylusions paints – such vibrant saturated color and yet, translucent! Here’s the finished 7 x 10 piece, then pics of the process from paper collage through color-block painting, marking, stamping, stenciling, preparing embellishments and text. Please leave a comment and ask any questions you may have. I’m very user friendly! Products used: Canson Mixed Media Paper, Dylusions Paint, Archival Inks, stamp: Stampington & Co., stencil: The Crafters Workshop, paper flowers: Papermania, brads: Artemio, gel medium: Daler-Rowney.
Finished 7 x 10 Mixed Media – “Be Yourself”
Collage book text onto mixed media paper.
Add stamped script. I blurred it a bit by double stamping.
Fingerpaint blocks of color with acrylic paints. Add marks with the edge of a credit card.
Add stenciling. I did mine by daubing on Archival Ink through the stencil.
Prepare your choice of embellishments. I fingerpainted some paper flowers. Too fun!
Stamp text onto stock that you’ve inked a bit, or onto colored or patterned stock.
Play with positioning your embellishments till you are happy. If using flowers, attach with brads. Add the text with gel medium. Voila! Completed! I hope you’ve enjoyed this spread. Please comment and follow! THANK YOU for checking me out. ♥ ♥ ♥
