Its Shylaa here to share a step by step mixed media card tutorial. Mixed media art is total fun as there is no criteria fixed and innovation is endless to work with.
The challenge this month is a Earthy mood board,I was totally flaunted by the colors. Though it is a tutorial post, i did not want to miss to try my hand with the color.
Here is my card.
Here is the tutorial to create this mixed media card.
Step One is to create a base layer for your card, Take the cardstock(for my 4.5"X6" - card base, my cardfront is of 4"X5.5"). Coat a layer of gesso and allow it to dry. Then scrap the edges of the card with knife.
Step Two- is to add depth and variety to your card with paint layers. I have used Camlin fabrica acrlic paints and spray inks for this.
Step three is to add text to your cards now. I have used HLS - thinking of you - script stamp and randomly stamped on the coloured panel.
Step four is to add textures to your cards. i have used Heidi swapp spray stencil and Sakura modeling paste to textures
Step five is to embellish these cards as you desire .I have added stitched oval diecut from Gina k Designs to card panel with foam tape to add dimensions.
Embellishments which i have used are Handmade rose from flower die, flourish from cherrylynn dies, leaves from altnew wild hibiscus, jute twine, pearl strings, white ribbon & feathers.
Step six is Splatter with black water colour with paint brush
You are done!
