Mixed Media Projects

Time to share a couple more projects that were in the June issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.

Fist up is a fun tag. I took a piece of tissue paper and stamped randomly over the entire piece with a travel text stamp. Next I adhered the tissue paper to a piece of cardstock, painted then entire piece with several color of watercolor paint, and then added a piece of netting. Super simple so far. Then I printed the hot air balloon on transparency and then covered it with Stickles. Once the Stickles were dry, the hot air balloon was attached to the tag, a few triangle shaped beads were added, and lastly the sentiment was added.

And lastly is an ATC using one of favorite mediums, Glass Bead Gel made by Liquitex. And again, this was super easy to create. The fairy and sentiment were stamped onto a heavy weight watercolor paper. Regular cardstock will buckle under the weight of the Glass Bead Gel. The background was colored with several shades of watercolor paints and set aside to dry. Once the watercolors are dry, cover then entire ATC with Glass Bead Gel and set aside to dry, which will most likely take 24 hours. The gel dries clear (unless you add color pigment to it) so you can see everything under it. I LOVE how this turned out! Sort of reminds me of a snow globe that's been shaken and everything is floating.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit today and maybe even picked up a trick or two to try out on your own projects.
