The Work Bench

Hi Everyone, hope you all had a good week.

I did it ... I made my first Mixed Media card.  And as Marta is saying ... I break a blank page.

My journey with Mixed Media started watching Marta's - How To Break A Blank Page video. Big thank you Marta for your very informative videos. It helped me so much understanding what is needed for Mixed Media, what products to use and where to start. You made it all possible for me. Love watching Marta's videos and listening at all her stories.

I then bought Alyce Keegan's Mixed Media Class.  And as always her class did not disappoint. Thank you Alyce for your wonderful class and all the tips you shared. I once again have learned so much from you class and understand Mixed Media much better.

Now here is my card
using LOTV The Work Bench

Sentiment: LOTV Sentiment Tag. Dies: MFT Tool Charms. Impression Obsession Scribble Circles. Cheery Lynn Designs Burlap Border. Poppystamps Stitched Rectangle. White and Black Gesso and Modelling Paste. Stencils: That's Crafty Dinky Honeycomb and Tim Holtz Bubble. Stamps: Darkroom Door Stone and French Script. Distress Inks: Tea Dye, Walnut Stain and Old Paper. Viva gold paint.

I first stamped the stamps with Archival Black Ink. Gesso over the stamped images. I then used stencils with Modelling Paste. 

Then add colour using Distress Inks. I add some Black Gesso to bubble wrap and press it on the page randomly.  I also dry brush some gold paint over the textured stencilling. 

Thank you again Marta and Alyce of giving me the confidence to start doing my first Mixed Media project and understanding how it works.
