Hello again! I’m back with the third project in my first feature as guest designer for STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday! I’m having a blast! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! As mentioned in my previous posts, I have three projects to share and wanted to showcase them individually so I can enjoy sharing them in some challenges. All three projects feature several ARTplorations Stencils and Masks along with other products available in the store. So here is a fun mixed media board!
I started by laying a 6×6 piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock with the ARTplorations ART happens Mask and three pieces of the ARTplorations Circles Flexi-Template in my ink spray cardboard box and randomly sprayed Red, Gold, Yellow and Orange Glimmer Mists over the board. I then put a 2×2 EcoArtBoard into the cardboard box with the R on the mask centered over it and sprayed the Glimmer Mists over it as well. The spray landed heavier in some areas on both pieces, splattered/splotched in some areas, and even ran in a couple areas but I felt like all this contributed in a positive way to this mixed media board! After both pieces were thoroughly dry, I adhered the inked cardstock to a 6×6 Gessobord with matte gel used as an adhesive, and then randomly stamped sentiments from the STAMPlorations Art Is stamp set by pressing the stamps into barn door archival ink and then pressing them onto the pieces with my fingers rather than putting them on a block. I expressed ink from my Gold Posca pen onto a piece of scrap paper and flicked gold ink over the board, and then ran the pen around the edges of both pieces. I used the matte gel to adhere the EcoArtBoard to the Gessobord, lining up the letters. The finishing touch was adhering an arrow from the CRAFTplorations Funky Arrows #2 pack with the matte gel and drawing four tiny gold dots on the arrow with the Gold Posca pen.
Here are a couple additional shots.
And one more peek… this was so much fun! This mask and circle templates are awesome! Nothing like good mixed media play!
