I’ve been looking at several mixed media projects on youtube recently, such as art journals, altered book covers, etc and thought it would be interesting to have a go myself. I only possess one stamp, which has a couple of dragonflies on it, so I began by searching my stash for anything I could make use of as stamps/stencils. For the backgrounds I stamped with bits of painted lace and a foam flower and used sequin waste as a stencil. The butterfly, dragonfly and areas of text were all taken from B&Q wallpaper samples and the leaves were from Crafty Notions. Strips of white netting, added randomly, give another texture and this also has the effect of softening some of the areas. I love hessian so this had be included somewhere along with a few beads and a bit of lace. My A5 sketchbook was next to get a makeover using the same papers, lace, etc….this was fun to do and looks like being my latest obsession!

I really like this. I’d love to see more detailed images for how you did this.
Thanks, glad you like them. They were the result of just playing with odd bits I had to hand. A friend has asked me to do her a similar thing so I will do this later today and take photos to show how its put together.
