Mixed Media Tags- Creating basic mixed media backgrounds/Stamping-Heat Embossing/Doodling

Hi my dear crafty friends...

How you guys are doing?? I am sure you are loving groove golf tools and sequins from Dress My Craft..These are few amazing product...and so much more exciting is coming soon
so stay tuned with some more new launch from DMC..

Also the search for DMC brand new design team is going good luck to all the participants :)

So, I have a one big project for February month and I have divided it in two parts...So today I am presenting the first part which is about basic mixed media tags. Basically this post is for new or aspiring crafters. There are hundreds of techniques now and for that thousands of products are available in it is very important to understand the correct use of each and every product before you invest. Before I start I will tell what all I am going to cover in this project..

1. Basic background creation with Prima marketing- Art essential mixed media products like Modelling paste, white sand texture paste, 3d Gloss gel, heavy black gesso

2. Stamping and Heat Embossing

3. Doodling- You will learn how doodling can enhance your mixed media projects and how it can be used to create beautiful and arresting designs.

4. And last is dressing up your tags- It is very important how you are embellishing the project and this is one of my favorite part.

I will mention the product details at  the end of the project.

Here is what I created, I have used Prima's Garden Fable and Tales of you & me collection for making the base of the tags.

In all these tags I have tried to cover basic techniques to create textured backgrounds and stamping with heat embossing... So if you are a journal or mixed media lover then also these are few elementary things which you should know.
Also I will be doing little bit doodling which is again a fun part and you will see how you create some nice effect on your background.

So without taking much time, presenting you the video tutorial.

I hope you all enjoyed watching it. Please do share your reviews.

Here is the list of  products,

  • For background texture effect: I have prima mixed media kit which has around 5-6 types products. I have used below three products

  • Stencils
I feel stencils are not always required while creating background texture, It all depends upon your choice and requirement. I preferably use Tim Holtz Stencils..almost every design is available at Crafters Corner, The one which I used in this project are

  • Stamps, Ink Medium & Embossing Powder

  •  Paper pack


We would love to hear from you !
