I love the look of Mixed media Art projects. I do not create a lot of MM on a regular basis due to the mess and time involved in creating such cards. I am really happy with the results of this project and I hope my fellow swappers like them just as much.
I used this beautiful fall paper by Bazzill Basics for this project. I really like this pad of 6x6 paper because it is double sided so you get lots of options.
To create the background on my cards I tore strip of paper from several different patterns, I inked all the edges in Ground Espresso Distress ink and using my Tombow liquid adhesive I glued the pieces, layered on top of each other onto a 4x6" sheet of Kraft cardstock.
Once all my edges were sealed to the cardstock I cut the 4x6 in half leaving me with 2 - 3x4 layered cards. I then edged the cards with Liquid Leaf paint in Renaissance Gold. I just wanted to add a touch of something special to my cards and this Liquid Leaf was just the ticket.
Next I created my cute little pumpkin.
To create the pumpkin, I punched three 1 1/2" circles in two different patterns and the stem from corrugated paper. I inked all the edges then layered them together.To created the bird for my other card I used a CTMH stamp and stamped it onto Kraft cardstock then fussy cut around the image. I fussy cut the wing from a different patterned paper and attached it using a 3D foam square. This added some dimension to my bird.
Here is a close up look at both finished cards. I added a burlap square behind the pumpkin and a brass paperclip with hanging tag to both cards.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope this post inspires you to get a little messy and try something new.
Happy Fall Y'all
