Mixed Media Technique Instructions

Project designed by Sheelagh Tomsett

Gather some of your die cuts and embellishments ready to adhere later, you could choose a theme or have fun with random items, it is up to you.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Using a medium weight chipboard for this project, choose 2 to 3 stencils and apply embossing paste to random areas and dry. Cut your board to the shape required.

Arrange your die cuts and mixed media and glue in place using a hot glue gun or pva glue.

Cover all the die cuts with 2 or 3 layers of white gesso (depending on the brand you use), make sure you take it into all the crevices.

Step 4

Step 5

Now is the time to get your ink sprays out, spray and dab excess, lift and tip the page to form inky drips. Don't forget to dry between sprays as you build up the layers.  

Keep adding layers until you are pleased with finished colours. For added zest dribble a little alcohol ink here and there and spritz with water - yes I did say water, and it works, dry a little and dab excess.
