Be awesome and smile by Marta

by admin

Hello friends 🙂

It’s Marta here with my September inspiration. Today I would love to share with you my 3 creations.

First to share are my two cards. Did you know that mixed media can be used even on the cards? You don’t have to limit yourself to layouts or journal pages to use your mediums and masks. I love making cards with mediums touch, it’s smaller surface to work with and sometimes more challenging.

First card is mix of turquoise and brown shades. To build my backround I used modeling paste and Ice Shards stencil. I sprayed design with Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays. I added beautiful Flourish 12 scribble chipboard. Wording is stamped.

Second card is in brown colours. I used beautiful papers from 7 Dots ‘Nature Walk’. Here I also used the same Ice Shard stencil with white ink. You can also see few splashes of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays. I added Flourish 10 Twister chipboard. As final touches I added few dots of liquid pearls.

My third creation is my art journal page. In this project once again I used fantastic Ice Shards stencil. If you will look closer you will see that design created with stencil is not even. I didn’t use only white modeling paste but also 3D transparent gel medium from Artbasics from Finnabair. Gel medium and paste reacted differently for sprays from Lindy’s Stamp Gang. While mediums were still wet i sprinkled it with glitter from artExtravagance by Finnabair – the blue shading was created with glitter.


I also stamped some stars with Star Spangles stamp.

I hope you have enjoyed my mixed media creations 🙂 My next inspiration for you will be here next week and I will have step by step video tutorial for you.

I hope I will see you here soon.

Love, Marta x
