Mixed Media Card

Hi Everyone, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.

I wanted to share a mixed media card with you. I made this the other day and also recorded a YouTube tutorial for it. In case you have not managed to watch it yet, here is the link to the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNOuNkZekoc&t=71s

My journey into mixed media is still very, very new. To be honest its not something that i have ever really liked. Since i got the acrylic paints from Sizzix i have become more and more interested in mixed media. I am so excited about delving further into it and trying out new techniques.

If you follow me you will know that i like to try lots of different things. I started my crafting journey making 3D projects like bags and boxes. I still enjoy that but i get bored of doing it all the time. I was never really into cards in the early days but now i really love making them. I just like to try new things and hate getting bored.

Please don’t be scared of mixed media. Think of it like lots of different mediums combined together in one project. Its all about layers so just break it down step by step. Experiment and don’t be afraid to try something new.

I will be bringing more mixed media projects to my channel so i really hope you will stick with me and maybe give it a try yourself.

Happy crafting.

Love Ann xx

  5. I have to be honest and say this one is not to my taste Ann. Please do not be offended life would be so boring if we all liked the same thing and I think this if the first thing you have made that has not appealed to me. It obviously appeals to many others so maybe it is just me, but as I say we are all different so this is not a criticism xxx
