Mixed Media Book - part 1

Hello. Look at all the gorgeous happy mail that has touched down in the crafty room. All new in over at Paper, Pen and Plan. I couldn't wait to have a play so I have pretty much thrown everything that came onto the first page!  

I am far from a mixed media expert but I do find it fun and relaxing to do. Also, there are so many tutorials out there, thank goodness for You Tube! I started by giving the whole page a wash of the Art Philosophy watercolours. Then I stencilled some of the Sparks acrylic paint - a hint of sheen and sparkle. Then I added loads of collage bits from my oddments box. I finished off the page by adding stamped and coloured images from the Dream Without Fear stamp set. Pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Once the first page was done I decided that the cover deserved to be decorated. I have been saving the background piece of paper (which came in an earlier Sweet Treat Box) and decided this project was the perfect time to use it. 

The flowers and birds are from a Tracey Hey stamp set called With Love. I stamped, coloured, cut them out and stuck them down. Added some doodles and washi - job done!
