Hi! Mayline here with you again and I am excited to be sharing my second guest post on the Spellbinders blog. For today’s post, I’ve created one card and one mixed media journaling that I made for the first time. That is why I am so excited to share this project with you.
Here is my card for today:
To start off, I stamped one of flowers girl images from Flower Girls Clear Stamps on 4-1/4 by 5-1/2 sized watercolour paper. Next, I stamped a sentiment from Crafty Minx Clear Stamps using a masking technique on the panel.
I stamped a painting palette and brush images on the panel. I coloured them using watercolour paints. Lastly, I add yellow colour splashes to the panel for creating a fun texture.
Here is my mixed media journaling!
To start off, I placed one of Flower Girl stencils onto a paper and secured in place with low tack tape.
Then, dabbed into Squid Ink Cave Black to pick up the colour. I gently pressed a blender sponge through the stencil. I continued pressing the sponge to colour the areas.
Next, I watched Jane’s colourings tutorial from YouTube. This tutorial helped me a lot to learn how to use smooth markers.
Also, this project was inspired by her tutorial. If you are interested you can watch it below:
To make a fun background, I drew a hair shape using a pencil and then I covered some area that I did not want to blend. After that, I blended open area and it turned out to be an awesome hairstyle.
Here is the final look. After I blended it, I added water splashes to the yellow background area and then used Washi Girls Washi Sheets to create a fun background. Lastly, I put a brush in the ink bottle (Squid Ink Gold Bullion) and then drew few leaves.
I hope you enjoyed today’s my project. Thank you for stopping by!
