A mixed media house

Hobbykunst has got some new, sweet wooden houses. These were so sweet, that I had to create something out of one of them. So, here is a small, mixed media house. 


The house has been mounted on a wooden spool. 


Hobbykunst has got six different houses.


The ladder, has been drawn in Silhouette studio, and cut with a Silhouette. I glued several ladders together to create a thicker.


It has been used old flowers, metal and micro beads, These has been glued on with Liquitex glue. 


The house has been decorated, and then sprayed black. After the black paint had dried, the house has been dry painted with gold and chalky paint. This is creating a patina effect.

Every picture has a story to tell - Layout with tutorial

Today I am showing you a video tutorial on a layout with the super sweet Keepsake Collection. This a simple layout with a picture taken at the end of the world. This photo is from the Remarkable Rocks at Kangeroo Island, Where I am looking out over the ocean towards Antartica.  This is one of Australias many amazing places.



I started, creating some pattern on white cardstock. I used a cogs stencil - Grunge Designer Template and a red ink pad.



Then I added strips of paper , acetate film strips and wooden embellishments in layers. Diecuts with the circular vine and cogs were added together with the flowers from the collectables.





Acetate were added above the phot, to add a frame and thext "The story begins here".





3D foam tape has been used between the layers to add dimensions.

Mixed media with left overs

Today, I am showing a mixed media piece, created out of left overs for The Papercrafting. This is to show that you don't really need to spend a lot of money to create a mixed media piece. ¨


Some time ago, I got an English scrapbooking magazine with some very thin wooden pieces/cards. I was looking at these wooden pieces for some tie, and wondered what I could use them for. I don't really like to through craft stuff away, so I decided to create something out of the wooden pieces. I ended up creating some small mixed media pieces out wooden cards. Here is one of the cards. 



The metal, micro beads and flowers has been glued to the wodden piece. Then it has been spray painted black. After this, I dry painted it with gesso and golden acrylic paint.


The mixed media piece has been mounted on a piece of glitter cardstock from Kaisercraft, and then on black cardstock.
