Today is my first post with the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Team!! Yay!
Each first Sunday of the month, you will have an ARTplorations stencil mixed media project from me and the rest of the fabulous creative team. There is even a challenge for you to enter :)
You can see all the inspiration HERE! I do so hope you enjoy it!
Here is my canvas for today :)
The canvas is small at 5 inches by 7 inches, but it is loaded with drywall tape, embossed paper scraps and DecoArt Crackle Paste, DecoArt Modelling paste, DecoArt Media Misters and a touch of sparkly glass ball beads from a dollar store :)
I am definitely in a blue phase right now :) So many of my projects are using the cool crisp blues and greens :)
I love how tilting and turning the canvas shows off something fun and new. As I was spraying the background I added a small spritz of Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sweet Violet Purple Teal down once side. It is water reactive when dry which is what I was counting on :)
Once all the layers of DecoArt Misters were dry, I applied the DecoArt Modelling paste through the Happy Flowers stencil. As it dried, the Lindy's spray leeched up into the paste, adding a fun touch of violet. The modelling paste has a wonderful translucent quality when dry. If you do not want it too faint, add some acrylic paint to make it more opaque.
There is a great new challenge as well! Bring on your mixed media play, make sure you use a stencil, any company is ok and anything but a card :) See more info HERE
