Mixed Media Blog Hop

Welcome to the Mixed Media Blog Hop hosted by Monica at Scraps to Treasure. This hop will not have a long list because it involves a little more work and it is going to broaden everyone's creativity by introducing you to the world of mixed media along with altered art (which a lot of people are familiar with).

For those who may not know what it is: Mixed media uses things like -
  • Paints
  • Gesso
  • Gel Mediums
  • Molding Paste
But it is a simple as using glimmer mist on a tag or using game pieces and alcohol inks.  
Everyones' take on it is different and I hope you enjoy all the creations!
Here is mine!!
I made a tag using manilla kraft paper.  I used Worn Lipstick Distress Ink to color the tag. I cut 2 hearts out of a piece of sticky back canvas.  Then I used Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paint in Red to paint the large heart.  Since I had the paint out, I used some pink paint on my Claudine Hellmuth (LOVE Claudine!) Studio Creative Layers Foam and Clear Stamps.  The foam stamp was done with pink paint while the clear stamp was done with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I also used a doily, a funky spiral paper clip, and some embellishments from my stash.  I finished the bottom off with some more canvas and tied it up with some 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon.

I have some Blog Candy for you too!
One follower who comments below will win the Pink and White Bundle of Crinkle Ribbon from 3 Girl JAM.  Another person who "Likes" and comments on 3 Girl JAM's Facebook wall will win the Hot and Cold Bundle of Crinkle Ribbon.

  6. Turned out great...that's my kind of Altered it. I just saw Claudine Hellmuth yesterday on HSN. She is talented. I've been looking at Glimmer Mist for some time now and may just have to get the look. Now for that 3 Girl Jam Ribbon...that's a must. The way you topped it off on the tag pulls it all together...excellent!
