Happy New Year, my crafty friends :o)
I'm sliding into 2017 with a quick and easy mixed media card tutorial and here is what you'll need:
Old Book Pages
Signo Uni - Ball White
DecoArt Media Program: Matte Medium, Fluid Acrylics Cobalt Teal Hue, Green Gold, Quinacridone Magenta, Quinacridone Red and Carbon Black
Adhere tissue paper to watercolor paper with Matte Medium
Make paint - puddles by mixing a tiny amount of Media Fluid Acrylics with a lot water. Start with Cobalt Teal Hue. Dab the card into the puddle and let dry.
When dry, create the next puddle with Media Fluid Acrylics Green Gold. It's important to let dry each puddle, to prevent muddy colours
The last colour i'm using is Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Magenta
Paint old book pages with Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Red and let dry. Seal front and back with Media Matte Medium
Cut out hearts and adhere to card with Media Matte Medium
Use a small brush and paint a border with Carbon Black around the heart......
...and lines around the card. Write a quote with Signo Uni -Ball white. Glue your creation to a card base and you're ready.
Try another colour combination
Happy New Year!
