2015 Mixed Media Technique Calendar - August

Yes, it's been a while but I didn't forget...just lots of things going on.  Here is the page we're going to make today...a mix of sprays, ink and other goodies!

1. Start off by tearing up a bit of text paper - this is a page from an old book but you can use whatever you have on hand.

2. Glue the pieces down any way you'd like.

 3. Dry brush a bit of gesso onto the arch.

4. Add a few spritzes of a couple dye sprays...  I'm using Pear Tart and Bahama Blue Fireworks! spray.

5. Find a couple different caps to use as stamps.   I stamped the large one several times using Danube Blue Memento Luxe Ink...

And I stamped the smaller lid with Morocco Luxe.

6. Add some stamping here and there.  I used several Viva Las Vegas mixed media stamps and the butterflies.  All stamped with various colors of StazOn Midi's

7. Now add some texture by flinging on a media of your choice - I'm using irRESISTible Texture Spray.  I took the cap off and used the little plastic hose to flick it all over the arch.  I used Radiant Neon Electric Blue, Pear Tart and Wedding White.

Here's a close up of the splatters - awesome huh?  It keeps that texture once dry!

8. Add the calendar and add black ink around the edge of the arch to finish it off!

  1. Stunning work! Hoping to catch up soon, just been too rough to do them recently - but I do love this one especially, because it is so random x

  2. Simple...Yet so So COOL!! LOVE IT!!

  3. I really love this calendar. What I learned is how you can create circles in the fashion you showed. TFS.
