Mixed Media with Scrapmatts!

Hello there! Here we are in June!! The year is flying by! I hope you are getting some creative time!!

I have been having a bit of fun with mixed media which is simply using a variety of media to create art.. or in our case, our scrapbooking!!

I got a scrap piece of paper and began to use some modelling paste and some fabulous stencils..

Then I covered the whole piece of paper with gesso.. This makes the paper able to hold the wet mediums which I used next..

When that was completely dry I sprayed it with mist..
When that was completely dry I mat this on some black cardstock and then mat that onto my card face..
I added some more stencilling, some mesh, some old die cuts left over from another project, my chipboard pieces which were painted in black gesso , added some flowers and I created a fabulous card!!

These are the Scrapmatts products I have used for my card...

I would also like to share a layout I created using mixed media also.  I have used a selection of stencils for the back ground. I have used quite a few chipboard pieces too...  I will share some closer views to show some of the details..

I can never have enough of the cogs, just love them!! Painted with brown paint and dabbed with gesso..
I have used the 3 sizes of the Hexagon stencil on the back ground..

I love the Federation Corners painted in white gesso, which matched the era of the house..
