Purple mixed media| Mixed media using stencil

Hello everyone,

This post is all about mixed media, I'm going crazy for this art. As I'm new to this, trying various and different techniques. For this, I used a traditional mandala stencil which looks lovely on my project.

I used mandala stencil and created a background, later I painted them with watercolor,ink and chalk paint. I used a contrast sunset image and placed it in the middle covered the sides with patterned paper. I rolled the paper painted with mint green and purple and tied them with a thread,placed them on the yellow patterned paper.

ATC Mixed Media

Hello everyone,

Today I came up with a post of making a ATC . What is ATC ? Even I was not aware of it until I discovered from other blogs and by googling. As the name suggests Artist Trading card ,one can trade/swap their cards with each other. The size of the card should be 2.5inches x 3.5 inches, exactly the size of the playing cards and a pocket friendly too.
I tried this ATC for the first time and I had so much fun in doing this Mixed media ATC .
I took a card of size of 2.5"x3.5", covered the base with tissue paper to give a texture. I painted them with acrylics,sprayed the ink. Later designed with embellishments and the quotes. Can you guess what are the embellishment used here ? I made them with my old,unused earrings :)

I took this picture to show the size of the ATC card by keeping distress ink next to it.

Nature Mixed Media Art | Beach Mixed Media Art | Journey Mixed Media Art

A place I enjoy the most is Beach. The waves touches the feet is the wonderful feeling ever and makes us to forget the stressful life. The beach is not only known as a place to relax ,but as a place of beauty. One can visit the beach at any season be it a summer,winter or rainy. In my experience, one can visit the beach during rainy season,Petrichor,the pleasant earthen smell is the best thing in the world. I tried the beach scene in my Mixed Media Art.

DIY MISTI Stamping tool | MISTI Stamping tool at home|Homemade Stamp positioner|Handmade Christmas card

MISTI,Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented helps in consistent stamping. As I am new to card making,it is very difficult for me to stamp the image. I saw videos people using MISTI tool for continuous stamping which is expensive. I decided to make my own version of MISTI Stamping tool at home. I made a Christmas card with my own MISTI tool

I have shared the video for the same.

Farm Card | Happy Day card | Animal card

When I saw  Casology cue card as farm, all I was thinking about farmville game in facebook. It was my favourite game during my college days and I used to play like crazy. I was getting up early in the morning around 2'o clock for harvesting the farm to prevent plants from withering(lol). My dad used to scold me that I'm getting up this much early for playing but not studying. I was very much addicted to that game reached 200+ level and played almost three years. It sounds so funny now :) Good Old Memories.

I'm new to card making and don't have much supplies, so did lot of shopping yesterday and got many items.I searched for barn stamp to look like farmville but i couldn't find one, so got a animal stamp.

  • In a cardstock, watercolor the background
  • Stamped the pig in a paper, color them and trim the shape out
  • Stick the pig onto to the cardstock and stamp the sentiment

Colored the pig dirty to shows that he is having a happy day to go well with my sentiment.

Materials Used:
  • Clear Stamps
  • Tim Holtz Black Distress ink
  • Tubby craft light pink dye 
  • Cardstock
  • Watercolor
