Happy Place Mixed Media Wall Hanging - Clearsnap Smoothfoam Bloghop

Hi, my dear friends, welcome to the Clearsnap and Smoothfoam Blog Hop! Hop along to each blog in the hop list to see inspiring ways to use Smoothfoam with Clearsnap’s ink, created by our teams of designers. Be sure to comment on each blog in the hop, then use the Rafflecopter widget at the end of this post to enter to win a prize pack of Smoothfoam and Clearsnap goodies!



The project I created for this hop is a mixed media wall hanging using 8" diameter x 1" tall Smoothfoam Disc from Smoothfoam and ColorBox® Spritzers from Clearsnap.


Smoothfoam is a smooth, closed cell foam, most commonly referred to as smooth Styrofoam ®. It is molded from tiny beads into many shapes like balls, bells, eggs, miniature fruit shapes and more. Because of its smooth surface it is excellent for painting. It is also very durable, making it great for projects requiring pins or glue.

 
To create the texture, I applied a layer of Gesso, and pasted the old book page and cheese cloth on the disc. There are many different sizes of disc you can choose from SmoothFoam and it is really easy and fun to work with mixed media colors and materials on it.  
 
 
The background was colored with ColorBox Spritzers and water mixture. I simply mixed the Spritzers with water and applied the mixture on the SmoothFoam using a watercolor brush. 
 


The last step was adding some beautiful Prima Flowers and embellishments. I really love the result and hope you get a chance to try these awesome products from SmoothFoam and Clearsnap.



Hop along to see more inspiration from our designers. Thank you so much for stopping by.
Happy Crafting! ^_^
