I recently got a few fun items from Michael's Recollections collection. You can find these things at Michaels and they have so many more fun products as well.
I got this beautiful mixed media journal and went ahead and decorated the cover of it. I am new to mixed media so I kept it simple.
First I went ahead and painted the background with Tattered Angels' DIY and Decor paint in the color Mankato. Its a gorgeous greenish-blue color. Then, I took some white gesso and scraped it on in random places. When all that was dry, I tore a few pieces of CCB tissue paper and painted it on with some Clear Glimmer Glam.
The background was finished so I went on to build some embellishments on top of it. I took a piece of kraft cardstock and stamped some polka dots in VersaMark ink. Over that I placed a heart that I sewed a canvas ruffle onto.
Canvas Corp also has these cute little treat bags that I stamped and tucked a wallet-sized black and white photo into. I painted some 7 Gypsies chipboard pieces with Tattered Angel's DIY and Decor paint the the color Chamois.
To see the process in more detail I hope you'll watch the video!
Thanks for stopping by! I have included links to a few of the products I used for this.
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
