Mixed Media Decor Piece Tutorial

Mixed Media Art Work
Hi friends, my blogging is pretty erratic these days as juggling so many things right now. Sharing a mixed media plaque I made as DT project for Crafters Corner to showcase stencilling techniques.

       My mixed media plaque celebrates life and enchanting nature with a butterfly and an angel encompassed in a semicircle of soft vellum flowers!
Mixed Media Tutorial 
          The colorful butterfly panel in various shades of pink and magenta is mounted on a curved piece of cardboard to raise it above the stencilled woodgrain background .
Mixed Media Tutorial 
My "celebrate" is also mounted on a curved platform and  has tiny shiny star sequins and shimmering translucent glass beads from glass beads gel!

        The raspberry pink flower made using Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose Stamp and die set has a generous sprinkling of distress glitter and diamond dust.
Mixed Media Tutorial 
I recycled a sturdy cake base to create my mixed media plaque. After a nice coat of gesso, painted the base with Folk art Vintage White paint.
Mixed Media Tutorial 
Used a mask stencil called Carabelle Studio Papillon Stencil with Distress Ink 
Mixed Media Tutorial 
And got the mask of the stencil design!
Mixed Media Tutorial 
Replaced the stencil and applied strawberry collage clay
Mixed Media Tutorial 
Collage clay has a thicker texture compared to Ranger Texture paste but you can get a nice coating using a palette knife. Here is a post with more on Collage Clay and projects using Collage Clay : Collage Clay Projects

Added splashes of orange with Art Anthology sprays and shiny pink with Wow metallic Pink embossing powder .

The butterfly was starting to build up in texture and sparkle!
Mixed Media Tutorial 
Painted over the whites with a contrasting Folk art Apple green and added more textural elements with glass beads gel.
Mixed Media Tutorial 
Added more texture with glass Beads gel, chunky glitter and tiny drops of  resin!

To match the color scheme of my project altered a bronze key with embossing ink and gold embossing powder

The colorful and sparkling butterfly contrasts nicely with the vanilla and copper gold background !
Stencil Art
The wood grain was created using the Carabelle Studio Effet Bois  stencil and texture paste
Mixed Media Tutorial 
Sprinkled Ranger Gold embossing powder on the wet texture paste and heat embossed to get the  beautiful golden wood grain.
Mixed Media Tutorial 
I used the same shades of Distress Inks  and embossing powder throughout the project to bring about a cohesive look.
