Come sit on my porch.

Welcome to my blog. 
Today I like to share my latest Mixed Media Project with you. 

I saw the amazing moodboard of Canvas Corp Brands, Words & Paintery and of Mixed Media & Art. They all have too things in common and that is the colors and the rusty look. So I had to give it a try and see what I will become. And this is my mixed media project, hope you like it. 



So let me tell you what I did and used to make this Mixed Media project.

I started out with wooden house with I covered with gesso. I added while drying on my Baking non stick fiberglass mat the different colors of Tim Holtz new distress Oxide with I mixed with water, before I added the colormix on my wooden house, the cardboard tree and the leaves. When it dryed it looked like I used Chalkboard, so I decided to add some of my hairspray on it, with the final result a glossy effect of the distress Oxide. In the mean time I found this sweet vintage picture of those three laughing boys on a porch. And the text come sit on my porch which right fit in.
On my big shot I made this beautiful brick wall with thinlits of Tim Holtz out of yellow paper. The brick wall and all the embellishments I covered up with Viva rusty, Oxyd and with copper rust. I also mixed some small 3D balls with some pieces of distress crayon and the viva rusty. Love the outcome of it.
I cut a door out of the new collection of  7Gypsies "Painted Doors". Now everything is dry I can start to add all together on my wooden house and build it up. Love how everything fits so good together.

  • Painted Doors of 7Gypsies

Never stop dreaming!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I like to share a colorfull layout.

I saw this gorgeous and colorful moodboard of the Berry71Blue May Challenge. And have to do something with it. Got inspired by the spring feeling of it. Spring is for me starting to dream in the sun and enjoying the colors of nature and of course the sun. So derfor I choose the theme: "Never stop dreaming!" and this beautyfull picture of a dreaming little girl.


This time I started out with a piece of cardboard, which I covered with this old piece of paper out of my own stash. Then I added with a gorgeous stencil with birds some modelling paste in the lower corner of the cardboard. Have dried it with my heatgun, before I added the different water colors on my paper also in the lower corner and also in the upper left corner.
Love the way the colors blend together. I also found in my stash a cork postage stamp edge, some match sticks with I collored with some water paint and with Shimmers water color. And also a laser printed frame which a sprayed with some Tattered Angels Spray. After they dried I added them around the corners of the picture. The space between the frames I colored a little more with water color. After the picture and the frames are glued on the paper, I added some flower brances to my cardboard. And a rub-on in the right upper corner with the words "Never stop dreaming". At the end I spattered the gesso onto my cardboard.

Material I have used:
  • Piece of cardboard
  • Piece of paper of my own stash
  • Flower branches
  • Match sticks
  • Laser printed frame
  • Cork postage stamp edge
  • Rub-on "Never stop dreaming"
  • Gesso
  • Pigment modellingpaste
  • Tattered Angels spray "Scarlet"
  • Tattered Angels Shimmer water color "Orange"
  • Water color in Green, Yellow and Orange
