The Blues Mixed Card

Every month Club Scrap has several challenges on their forum.  This month's technique challenge is to use a mixed media technique for a project.  The Club Scrap blog post has several techniques to choose from listed.  Above is my entry where I used a gesso over the embossed sentiment as described here and another gesso technique to create texture. 

Next, I used the gesso technique here to make the textured panel and the bird.  Instead of inking the gesso texture as listed in that post, I sprinkled an assortment of embossing powered on the wet gesso and heat set.  Then any empty spots on my paper were colored with a spray. My finished panels are shown bellow along with a close up of the texture created shown above.  

The supplies used are listed below:

  • Club Scrap 'The Blues' paper solids and prints (for flowers)
  • Club Scrap 'The Blues' sentiment stamp
  • Flower punch
  • Mini Pearls
  • Sizzix Tim Holtz Bird Branch Die
  • Distress Ink - Iced Spruce
  • Gesso
  • Lindy Stamp Gang Starburst Spray - Time Travel Teal
  • Lindy Stamp Gang Two Tone embossing powders - Panel
