Hi everyone! Laura here to share a little
romance with you all today!
And what goes better with romance than....
a mixed media project!
Ok, maybe not everyone's idea of romance,
but I think once you see how fun using different
inks, stamps and stencils, you might just fall in love (haha!)
The scraps of paper I used, and the stickers, are pretty,
and they made a perfect little card for my clipboard.
I tied on a little bow, added a few puffy heart stickers,
and a lovely lacy punched border along the bottom edge.
But the clipboard is the star of this romantic project.
The Clear Scraps Clipboard Mini in the Rectangle Scallop
shape is where this project starts.
Clear Scraps has many different shapes of these cuties,
and you can find them all HERE.
First I peeled off the protective plastic covering on
both sides, and then used alcohol inks in 3 coordinating
colors and applied them to one side using a foam applicator.
Next up, I flipped it over and stamped the acrylic piece
with a sheet music stamp using black Staz-On ink.
I love this look on it's own, but I wanted to soften it
a little bit, so I pulled out my Clear Scraps stencils!
I used the 6" Damask stencil and some white
pearl texture paste/dimensional paint and
applied it over the top of the stamped sheet
music image, using a pallet knife.
Ok, I can't lie here.....I thought this was so pretty,
I almost left it just as a mixed media mini clipboard.
It's definitely a stand alone project!
But in the end, being a romance project and all,
I decided to clip on that sweet little romantic
sentiment, so I could give it to someone special.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you are inspired to try a little mixed media
using some of the Clear Scraps acrylics!
