Happy Houses

Hi there,

today, we are starting the first Mixed Media Challenge in 2017 on the STAMPlorations Blog.

  • cover an art journal page cut from extra sturdy watercolor paper with white gesso
  • stamp some of the adorable STAMPlorations Houses with Versafine (Smokey Gray) - this is just to determine the exact placement on the page
  • cut out some circles from dry wall tape and adhere them onto the page
  • color the page with Golden Fluid Acrylics (Manganese Blue Hue, Phthalo Blue Green Shade, Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold)
  • apply some Texture Paste through the ARTplorations Just Squares stencil and let it dry thoroughly
  • mix some Golden Fluid Acrylic (Carbon Black) with Golden Acrylic Glazing Liquid and paint it over the raised areas, let it sit for a moment and wipe it away with a baby wipe - repeat the process until you are happy with the result
  • stamp the same houses from the STAMPlorations Houses set with My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink (Black Licorice) onto a piece of sturdy white cadrstock, color them with Delta and Touch Twin Brush Markers, cut them out and glue them onto the page with Matte Multi Medium
  • add shading around the houses with a black Stabilo All Pencil
  • add snowflakes with the help of watered-down white acrylic paint and a splatter brush
  • use white Liquid Applique to create snow underneath the houses
  • add the sentiment using a sticker

I hope you got inspired.
