Mixing it up

Hi guys! Sorry my last post was so short, I put myself in an unrealistic time crunch but still made it in time! Today I decided to try something different and give making a mixed media canvas a shot. My local Joann's was having a sale on canvases of all sizes so to start off, I grabbed a few 5x7 ones. When I got home I broke out my stamps, stencils, paints, and papers and went to work on my latest project trying to keep to the color scheme TGF's DT Member, Marcy, used for her release preview card so I could play along with this week's FFF, 'CASE' the DT here's what I came up with

As you can see, she's already made her way onto my wall! I'm very proud of this even though I've seen much better, I tried, got wrapped up in it and gave it my all. I used TGF's  shimmer bean, now available as part of the Magical kit in the Shop. I used an acrylic paint technique called a wash to create the background and used my honeycomb stencil with some antique gold paint to add texture. I stamped randomly with different flower stamps  and water color painted them with crayola washable markers. The sentiment is also from the Magical kit. All in all not bad for my first attempt, maybe the next one will be even better, maybe mixed media just isn't my forte, who knows! It's always fun to try new things and you won't always be good at everything but you never know if you don't try, right? Have a great day,



  1. What a doll!!! I love making things to hang around the house! This turned out perfect!!!!

  2. SUPER cute wall art! Thanks for joining us for FFF!

  3. This is gorgeous Krys and who wouldn't love to see adorable little bean girl hanging up on their wall! The beans are one of my fav collections and I just colored one up myself! Love this magical kit and can't wait to create with more of them. Thanks so much for casing me...I'm flattered by that since I'm always in awe of your work! :) Have a wonderful 4th of July!
