Yesterday I took this piece of dp.
It was really pretty but I wanted to mix it up.I started by printing the daisies from Diane's Daydream Designs set called BOUQUET OF DAISIES
I then took white paint and bubble wrap. I stamped with the paint and bubble wrap all over the paper. I then took crumpled up plastic wrap and dipped it in the white paint and added it to the dp. Then this morning when I saw the the mixed media challenge at SCS was to go back to kindergarten and use crayons on our project. I masked the daisies because I didn't want the crayons to get on them and I took my scissors and shaved several crayons onto the dp and melted them with my heat gun. Then I removed the mask and used white paint to paint the daisies. Then I used prisma colored pencils to color the stems and leaves. I then outlined the daisies with a black ink pen. Then I did the hardest thing ever. I cut the panel. It was almost painful to do it, but I knew it would make a more interesting card if I did it. I added burlap and a twine and button daisy. I wanted to show off my mixed media dp so I put a small strip over the burlap.
When I was done and looked at the finished card it reminded me of the Easter dresses that I bought my daughters 16 years ago. I thought it was ironic that we were to throw back to kindergarten because my oldest daughter was in kindergarten that year. My son in this photo is now a senior in high school getting ready to graduate next month. How quickly time flies.
I had enough scraps left over that I decided to make another card. I took the scraps and cut out 8 petals. I added a button with twine, gold mesh ribbon and freehand cut the stem and leaves.
Then I made a dream catcher's card. This card started as plain white cardstock. I ink spray smashed it with about 6 different blue markers. Then I took blue metallic paint and used the plastic wrap to put it on the paper. Then I took white paint and bubble wrap. I heat embossed with silver embossing powder and heat gun. I wanted to do gold embossing on my first card but I didn't do it before I added the crayons and I knew that the crayons wouldn't take as much heat as the embossing powder... so I considered it a lesson in what to do "next time" So with this card AFTER I did the heat embossing then I added the crayons. I hand drew the dream catcher. The feathers and dream sentiment are from 2 different MFP sets. BE A SHOWOFF and BIRDCAGES. I added black twine and beads. After I got the card all together I used a toothbrush and white paint to splatter the whole card.
