Hello! Thanks so much for stopping and welcome to Day 4 of the MFT June Teasers! The new products will be available on Tuesday, June 11th at 10 PM Eastern in the MFT Boutique.
Today I have an 8" x 8" mixed media canvas to share featuring a photo of sweet Meredith that was taken several years ago. After creating the background using the following: MPD Graduated Hexagons stencil, LJD Art Expression Text, Mix-ables Steel Shimmer Mist, Blu Raspberry ink (mist), I embellished the canvas with a variety of blossoms.
I stamped a few blossoms using Berrylicious ink and foliage using Factory Green ink along with MPD Blooming Roses on coordinating die cuts that were made using Die-namics MPD Rose Bouquet dies. I colorized several of the rolled roses using Blu Raspberry ink mixed with Mix-ables Sheer Shimmer Mist and the silvery blossoms were misted with Mix-ables Steel Shimmer Mist which gives the flowers an AMAZING shimmery coat:
I added a few fun strips of stamped washi tape using Washi Patterns and Die-namics Washi Tape.
I took a few step shots along the way to show you how I created the background.
Step 1) Apply Blu Raspberry ink mixed with Mix-ables Sheer Shimmer Mist to the backgroundStep 2) Stamp text image from LJD Art Expression Text on tissue paper using permanent ink.
Step 3) Randomly tear tissue paper into pieces, crinkle then adhere to canvas.
Step 4) Lightly paint on a think coat of Gesso.Step 5) Add texture using MPD Graduated Hexagons stencil and fiber paste.
Step 6) Add color using premixed custom mist made using a combination of Blu Raspberry ink mixed with Mix-ables Sheer Shimmer Mist (see video tutorial HERE), and Mix-ables Steel Shimmer Mist:
This is what it looks like when was finished misting white cardstock flowers using Mix-ables Steel Shimmer Mist:
