i decided to host a challenge over at the shack to spread my new found
not a hobby
stamps: christy tomlinson
paper: tissue paper, glitz pp
ink: jet black
paint: gesso, acrylic
embellishments: muslin, glimmer mist, buttons
other: decoupage, bubble wrap, gel medium
font: rough typewriter
i took the ideas from a few places. i know i used this quote from pinterest last week on my art journal, but i love it! i also tried the cool transfer technique again. you can't see it very well, it's very subtle in the corner...a bicycle with flowers in the basket.
and talk about button heaven!! then i got the stacked canvas idea from tracy's ustream class last week. talk about open a whole new set of options!!
another cool technique i tried was printing on tissue paper. if i print on regular paper with an inkjet printer, the ink smears when i use mod podge. but i read that if you print on tissue paper, it doesn't. so i tried that and it totally works!
so if you get nothing out of my mixed media posts lately, get this...just try something new. you never know where it will lead you. if you would have asked me if i would have loved this so much, i would have laughed. so just go out and try something new!!
