Mixed Media Banner
26 July 2012 | By admin in Altered Art, Mini Albums & Journals
Jen Matott here with a fun project that I did with the new Oh So Mini Albums. I mixed the Scallop and Rounded pieces together for a fun banner! I love the different materials that these albums are made of and how materials react differently to the different surfaces.
This banner was so fun to make and I loved how it came out after stringing it together. Let’s take a look at some of the individual pieces:
This canvas piece was left bare and I used a Crafter’s Workshop cloud stencil with Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos in Silver Ice and Blueberry with a sponge brush. I then dripped some embossing medium onto the canvas and added WOW Embossing powders in Black Glint, Cotton Candy, and Platinum.
One of the clear acrylic pieces that I embossed using my Cuttlebug and embossing folders then sprayed with the Tattered Angels sprays that were inspired by Basically Bare in Coconut Shell.
This cardboard piece was created with a brick template and VersaMark with WOW Embossing powders mixed and layered. I started with Cable Car Red and then layered Black Glint and some Copper. I then added the “Journey” Stamp and embossed with Bright White. The dots are Gelatos through a stencil and then dripped some Gelatos mixed with water from the top.
Another canvas piece with WOW stamps using Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Pitt artist pens and Gelatos through a circle stencil.
This is one of my favorites. A chipboard rounded piece with a Prima script stamp using Faber Castell Pitt Artist pen and then flames embossed over top with a stencil and WOW Embossing Powders in Cable Car Red, Black Glint, and Copper. I also embossed the doily with Ultra High Gold WOW embossing powder. The stamped frame and words are from WOW and embossed as well.
Lots of embossing and stamping here… then layers of ribbon cut papers and dripping embossing powders and a framed saying attached. I also embossed and added the cardboard and chipboard circle waste from the holes in the mini pieces for more texture. I love that I can peel the cardboard to reveal the corregated parts.
Finally another acrylic piece that was stamped with StazOn and embossed through the Cuttlebug again and sprayed with Tattered Angels.
I hope you liked my banner made from Oh So Mini album pieces! I had so much fun making it and it was at CHA in the WOW Embossing Powder booth this month!
