Mixed Media Tag Curiosities

newchallenge sssm

Welcome back, my lovely friends! This week, let's create with the ‘sewing’ them. You can use either sewing themed stamps, dies, etc. Or you could add real or faux stitching!

I made a mixed media tag with a cute Tim Holtz Crazy Dog image, and the edges of the tag were stamped with the faux stitching using Tim Holtz Patchwork Pieces.

On this size 8 tag, I first colored the background with Distress Paints and stamped some patterns with Gesso and Colorbox black ink pad. To create the faux stitching, I stamped Tim Holtz patchwork stamp around the edges of the tag.

The star die cut embellishment were made using Tim Holtz Stacked Star Wafer Dies and Big Shot. The key embellishment was covered with Gesso first and Distress paints, then layered with star diecut   and glued on the tag.

I really love this crazy dog image so I stamped and heat embossed it, then colored using Sakura Koi watercolors.

Some metal embellishments and Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers were attached on the tag for more interest. 

Hope you got inspired and join us with your STITCH or SEWING theme project. Can't wait to see what you will create!

Mixed Media Canvas Sea Horse

newchallenge sssm

Hello, my dear blog friends, welcome back! This week, let's create with the theme "GO FISH"!
I created a mini mixed media canvas with Prima Flowers modeling paste on the background, a stamped sea horse image, and Prima Flower Rustic Gears.

This is a tiny 4" X 4" canvas. On the background, I first applied the watercolors then modeling paste to create the colors and texture.

The sea horse image was stamped using Tim Holtz mini blue print and Memento black ink. I glued the sea shell and colored it using Sakura watercolors and a brush.
