Mixed Media Canvas Royal Blue

It's a new week and there's a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Let's Be Royal - From princesses to crowns, royal colors to jewels – this week, let’s be inspired by all things regal or royal.

I was inspired to create a wall hanging with royal colors.

This project was inspired by the royal blue colors and created for my son, Christopher, since he loves to collect things about traveling, ocean and blue.

After Gesso was applied on the canvas, the background was colored with Faber-Castell Blue Gelatos and covered with Glass Bead Glitter Gel. I used ColorBox Art Dauber and Gelatos distressed the edges of this canvas.

I cut various shapes of the patterned paper for the Fragments and glued them with the Fragments using Tombow glue. Then I added Tim Holtz 2015 Big Chat Stickers and pasted Fragments to embellish this canvas with Tombow glue and Foam Squares.

Art Journal Faces Illustration

Hello, my friends, I hope you are all doing great and having fun crafting or drawing. Today, I'd like to share some faces I am working on this week. 

The background of these three pieces were created with ColorBox Smooch Spritzers. I painted these girls with watercolors. The first girl was outlined with Gelly Roll pen, the second one was outlined with Faber-Castell PITT artist pen and third one was Pantel Color Brush.

Girl with Hair Accessory 

All these drawings were on 9" X 6" watercolor paper and I'll binding these pieces into an art journal after I have enough pages. Currently I am still adding more details for the hair, accessories and background patterns.

Mixed Media Thank You Tag

Hi, everyone, oh.... I can't believe that the school ends in  two weeks. This week, we are giving thank you cards and gifts to kids' favorite teachers, coaches, and office staff. At Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge,  we'd like to see your gift ideas for teacher appreciation. From tags for store bought things to homemade thank you gifts, cards, or anything else you dream up - please share what you come up with.

I was inspired to create a thank you tag this week.

My kids and I usually make simple and cute thank you cards together for teachers and friends. This week, I wanted to try something different with some mixed media elements.

To start this project, I applied Gesso on this #8 tag, then stenciled the background with Tim Holtz Layering Stencil and Modeling Paste.Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Thank you Tag Tim Holtz Simon Says Stamp 2

The edges of the tag were distressed and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I also randomly applied embossing ink on the background and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

 Tim Holtz embellishments and Alpha Parts were attached with Tombow Glue. As the final touch, randomly apply some  Distress Paints on the embellishments.
