Happy New Year - Mixed Media Cards

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:

Watercolor Paper
Old Book Pages
Tissue Paper
Signo Uni - Ball White
Small Brush 
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!
