Mixed Media Card Believe You Can

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Card Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Bicycle Believe 1
Hi, my sweet crafty friends. let's create and share! This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "Transport It" - "Think Trains, Planes, Automobiles or maybe you can think of some other form of transport! Hot Air Balloons, Bicycles, etc, whatever you choose to use we will be looking forward to seeing what you make!".

I was inspired to create a mixed media card using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Pen and Pencil Stampers and added the sentiment with Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Mini Motivation.

The card base I used is 4.25" X 5.5" cream color card. On another piece of watercolor paper, I sprayed Tim Holtz Distress Spray over the Layering Stencils with different colors. The watercolored paper was cut and saw on the card base after it was dry. I stamped the sentiment on the same watercolored paper and cut the flag shape to pasted on the card.

For the "Transport It" theme, I used the bicycle stamp on the watercolored paper. I attached this image on the card using staples. The Prima Flowers and leaves were added on the card for the final touch. 

I hope you like my mixed media card and got inspirited to crate your project with the theme "Transport It". Can't wait to see what you create!

Some Quick Paintings on Mini Canvas

Hey, my painting friends and art lovers. Today I'd like to share some girls I've painted lately. It's been a busy month and I've tried to find some time to paint and draw every day. These are some quick practices on mini canvases that were painted mostly with Winsor and Newton acrylic paints,  and also watercolors and oil paints. I hope you like them. For more paintings I've done, please check my Instagram at MeihsiaLiu. Thank you :D

Mixed Media Canvas Love Valentine

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Mini Canvas Love Valentines Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Tim Holtz Prima Flowers

Welcome back for the new challenge, my dear blog friends. This week, let's share your favorite tool with us. At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our challenge theme is "YOUR FAVORITE TOOL". I created a mixed media canvas with my all time favorite tools:  Faber Castell Gelatos Tool Set for creating the background texture, and Clearsnap Art Daubers for distressing.

I've used the Faber-Castell Gelatos Tool Set for years and still love all the tools in this set. To create the texture on the background of this mini canvas, I used the palette knife to apply Modeling Paste over Tim Holtz Layering Stencil. The Dot Dabbers and Blending Chisel in this set are great to distress some small areas like the embellishments and the edges of the canvas. I also love to use Clearsnap Art Dauber to make the distress effect.

The Stipple Brush is the best tool to create the splatters. On my canvas, I simply loaded the brush with Gesso and water mixture and flicked it across my index finger to create this effect. I also use Drip Dropper in this tool set to make the paint splatter.
