Mixed Media

Demystifying Mixed Media

This was an incredibly interesting unit of work which really got my mind spinning. I can’t wait to try all of the different techniques that I have learnt.

This is the card that I was finally happy with. You will see what I mean as I go through the process of making the card. I have actually made two cards because I wasn’t entirely happy with the overall feel of my original card.

Supplies used

  • Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock 110lb and 80lb
  • Altenew Paint-A-Flower Hydrangea Stamp Set
  • Altenew Fragile Foliage Stamp Set
  • Gina K Amalgam Ink
  • Altenew Artist Markers – R705, R823, R702, C002, G702, G715, G554, WG01, WG03, 0
  • Lawn Fawn Brick Stencil
  • Ranger Texture Paste
  • Distress Inks – Antique Linen, Vintage Photo
  • Hero Arts Silver embossing powder
  • VersaMark ink
  • VersaFine ink
  • Clear embossing powder
  • Misti
  • Wendy Vecchi Make Art Station
  • Old book page
  • Heat Tool
  • Masking Paper
  • Silver & Purple embellishments
  • Mod Podge Matte Sealer

So these are the two cards that I completed for my Demystifying Mixed Media unit. I felt that I was over doing it with the top card. I like the idea of having parts of the image uncoloured and will definitely use this technique in future cards but the lower card is more cohesive and I like the use of silver embossing powder along with the interesting addition of a chapter heading image from the old book I used.

As I said previously this unit has really got me thinking and I can’t wait to incorporate some of the techniques I have learnt into my cards.

Thank you for visiting 💕

  1. Fiona! I was going to say the same thing about your second card that it looks more cohesive and complete! The first one needs something, maybe a bit of watercolour or splatters. Since you cant add watercolour now as its complete, I would definitely suggest black splatters, Do try!
    LOVE your take on this class. Absolutely love it!! I am glad you posted all the process photos, I am sure it will be very helpful with other participants when they visit your blog.
    Thank you for entering your fabulous work to the AECP assignment gallery.

    1. Thanks Erum for your feedback. I went back and put some black splatters on that card. It has definitely made a huge improvement – I even placed some more photos of the process so that others could seen what a difference it makes.
