{Mixed Media Tutorial} - Folk Flowers Tag by MariLynn


MariLynn here with a fun project. 




I started out by taking cheap water soluble markers and scribbling them on an acetate folder.


I sprayed water onto the scribbles.


I closed the folder and let the colors mix.


Then I put white cardstock in the puddles.


I did it two different times and got two different results. One was more splotchy and one was a more even color. I like doing this technique because no two are the same. There is the element of surprise.


I taped down ARTplorations Circular Two stencil.


I sprayed with water. When I let it dry this is how it looks. It has a very subtle design,


I sprayed through the stencil on both pieces of cardstock.


I chose to continue with the background that was less splotchy. I stamped flowers from
STAMPlorations Folk Flowers Stamp Set


I also stamped STAMPlorations Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds. I added gold acrylic paint to centers of flowers and splattered gold paint on the cardstock.


I stamped the sentiment from STAMPlorations Poket Blooms


This is how the cardstock looked before I cut it.


This photo shows what was scraps and what part I choose to keep.


I took another piece of colored cardstock, cheesecloth to put with it.


The finished tag.
