I am up on the Magenta blog today and I am super excited about this project. Besides that I am really pleased with both projects turned out, you will see the reason for my excitement further down in the post.
When I was envisioning this card idea, I wanted to try something a little outside the box with the Bird and Branch Silhouette stamp image and have it be raised with added texture.
Supplies: stamps, stencil and patterned paper (Magenta), cardstock (Super Stock - Canadian Scrapbooker), Tim Holtz tissue paper, gel medium and ink (Ranger), white gesso (Golden), clear gesso (Liquitex), gelatos, Stamper's Big Brushes and Whipped Spackle (Faber-Castell)
Well as you can see, I was able to come up with a neat way to make this happen. I even added sections of the branch area to build up the foliage area. Love it when an idea comes together in such a beautiful manner.
Today, I am sharing the technique that I created as the solution for my design quandary. In order to show the technique, I made a small canvas using the same elements as my card. Again, I am trying out something new to me... I made a video tutorial to share it with you.
(Supplies list can be found underneath the video in the information section when watched on YouTube.)
Hope you enjoyed this mixed media tutorial.
