Shine A Little and A Books Cover


Hey, friends, I've got a mixed media project to share today! I've been having a wonderful summer with my family, but I took a break to pop in the studio for the next Mix-Ability challenge.


Lucky for me I am also the host for the challenge this week and it was inspired by the cover of a book I read this summer so we can combine our reading with our crafting! Join us over on the Splitcoaststampers Mix-Ability forum and show off your inspiration from a favorite book!

MIX236: By the Book


The book? The Other Einstein. I loved the colors and the halo effect of the sky.

To make this card more mixed media style I combined stamping, watercolor, pen, and ink, plus a splatter of white paint.

Here's how I made the card.

My supplies:
I use affiliate links when possible and what that means is when you click an AZ link and make a purchase I receive a few pennies at no cost to you.
Instructions:

  1. Tape down watercolor paper onto a flat surface.
  2. Stamp image with black waterproof ink on the center of the paper.
  3. Paint around the image with watercolors. Let dry.
  4. Use a black pen to script out something in the shadows.
  5. Splatter watered down white paint onto paper.
  6. Stamp image again onto watercolor paper, trim out and glue over painted image.
  7. Die cut a word from white paper and adhere onto the image paper with liquid glue.
  8. Adhere onto color cardstock with double-sided tape.
