Shimmerz Mixed Media Name Sign

Hi Crafters :))

Today I am so excited to share with you guys my new project for Shimmerz. I created myself a name sign!!! They are very easy and fast to make and you will have soooo much fun making them!!

I want my name sign to really represent me. I LOVE colors, so thats why I made each piece a different color :) I used couple different Shimmerz product of similar color on each piece. All different kinds of products of Shimmerz really go together nicely color wise or texture wise. 

For the layering, all I did is to rip out a piece of printing paper, use my paper crimping tool to give it texture, then I stamped it to give it more depth. Behind the paper, I used either aplique, cheesecloth, threads to create another layer of texture.

Anyways, hope you like this project :)) Make one for yourself and you will see how much fun it is to play around with colors and texture.

Here is the tutorial:

Mixed Media Altered Canvas and Card For Flying Unicorn

Hi Crafters :)

In this post, I will share the Mixed Media Altered Canvas I created using June Mixed Art kit add on for Flying Unicorn. This kit is so much fun to play with. Everything you see on the canvas beside the big manor house creation flower is all from the kit. However you can get the manor house creation flowers in Flying Unicorn as well.

I also made a card using the same kit because it is so yummy I can't stop playing with it. I have a photo tutorial on how I made this card. 

---Here is the Mixed Media Canvas---


I cut out some paper strips and frame from Riddersholm Paper you can get from Flying Unicorn and layered them onto the background. All the flowers except the big beautiful Manor House Creations flowers are all from the kit. Of course you can get the Manor House Creations flowers from Flying Unicorn. I painted the metal pieces with the gesso in the kit, and colored with the paints in the kit.

---Here is the mixed media card---

This is the photo tutorial on how I made it.
The photos are really self explanatory, so I hope this helps.

Use the sprays in the kit and spray the background to add colors. Then add some cut out from the paper to create the layered background.

 Use the modeling paste in the kit and the stencil from the kit to create some texture.

 Use the sprays and paints in the kit to add more colors.

Put down the embellishments and color them with the paints and sprays from the kit.

Thank you so much for looking :)
Please check out our gorgeous Flying Unicorn kits!!!

I will also embed the video tutorial for the Off-The-Page Project and Mixed Media Altered Canvas. However, I will put the canvas the card in another blog post. So stay tuned please

I painted the  bench with green and kraft color paints to make it even more distressed. I also painted it with some Shimmerz Candlelight to add some shine.

I try to make every embellishment have the same color theme and look distressed. I layered bunch of yummy goodies. I also cut out some strips from beautiful Riddersholm Design Paper you can get from Flying Unicorn. Then I put the paper strips here and there on the bench just to tie everything together. I also fussy cut out some elements from the paper.
