Paper craft project no. 441: Trendy Birds 2 mixed media projects

  

This week over at STAMPlorations, we're releasing a set I designed called Trendy Birds 2. We've got a mini hop for it -- hop on over the blog and leave a comment on the special stamp release post, as well as on the participating designers blogs for a chance to win this set.


To showcase this set, I created two non-card projects: an 8x10 mixed media artwork on gesso board and a mini canvas/magnet on thin balsa wood.

Be Free Canvas
I started by applying yellow Dylusions paint on an 8x10 gesso board. Penciled in the three rectangle blocks and painted each with green, orange, and blue/turquoise paints. Added the black borders using black Dylusions paint. I stamped the newsprint (Mixed Media Grunge) on the yellow background in brown archival ink and the borders (Artsy Border Maker) in black archival ink. Next, I stamped the sentiments on tissue paper and used gel matte medium to apply them onto the board. The birds I stamped on an old book page and then fussy cut before decoupaging onto the board with gel matte medium. I added some faux textures with ARTplorations stencils (Nestled Circles, Old Rose Prints, and Tribal Weave). I sealed the canvas with gel matte medium.


All Your Heart Mini Canvas/Magnet
To create this canvas/magnet, I applied gesso and then yellow Dylusions paint on a 5 1/2 by 2 1/2 thin balsa wood. Then I sponged dark yellow archival ink through an ARTplorations stencil (Bloom Factory). Next I stamped the grungy border (Mixed Media Elements) in black archival ink. I stamped the sentiment (Born to Roam) in sienna archival ink on tissue paper and used gel matte medium to apply it. I stamped the newsprint bird on an old book page, fussy cut it, and used gel medium to apply it. The flying birds I stamped directly onto the balsa wood. I sealed the mini canvas with gel matte medium. I trimmed a couple of adhesive business card size magnet sheets and stuck them to the back.

Check out what Susanne, Carol, Tanja, Irit, and Asmah created using the Trendy Birds 2 set -- leave a comment here, on their blogs, and on the STAMPlorations blog by Friday and you could win this set :o) And until June 1, Trendy Birds 2 is 10% off.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)
