Winter mixed media.

Happy New Year's everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous and safe celebrations. 

Oddball Arts host another challenge on the blog: Winter. I created this mixed media page in my handmade album. I really loved working on this page and used variety of mediums. 

Firstly I used light watered down white gesso to cover some of the sparkles on this silver glitter page. It was really silver and I felt it would take too much from the page. Then I used some blue stain paint from Tim Holtz to add a bit of colour to the background. I used dry kitchen towel to blend it to the background a little. When it dried I added some perfect pearls to give the page some glimmer here and threre. Sprayed with a bit of mist to set it in. Meanwhile coloured the little digi stamp from Oddball Art using my Letraset Promarkers and used a bit of paint for highlights before cutting her out. After stamping the background with heart background stamp I glued the image on using mod podge covering only back of the picture. Added  some bling swirls purchased from Hobbycraft and some liquid perfect pearls from Ranger. I cut out the snowflake templates from my cameo and used modeling paste to finish of the page.

The challenges I am entering this page for: 


  1. I've only recently been starting the mixed media and I love it. Can't wait to play with texture paste again. Now I just need some sprays and maybe another stencil or two. ;)
    Your page is wonderful!
    Hugs! xx
