Two amazing mixed media art pieces - May Mix'd Media kit

Hello Friends-
Today I'm sharing the Off The Page Project for Scraps of Elegance May Kit "Mix'd Media"
I absolutely loved this creating with this Kaisercraft Birdhouse!

In case you haven't noticed I have a passion for art dolls and book page fringe. In used the beautiful Blue Fern Studios Happy Accident papers in background as the base for the whole birdhouse. I then used the Prima Art Alchemy Butterfly Spells Acrylic Paint over the edges of the birdhouse. I used some crackle paste and modeling paste with a stencil to create texture and interest in random areas on the roof and edges. I dabbed Prima rust paste on these areas to create a worn patina look.

The front of my birdhouse has one of my favorite art dolls. I used a metal birdhouse found in the Scraps of Darkness Kit and some chipboard birds that covered in a blue acrylic paint and rust paste. Of course I added tons of flowers and leaves found in the floral add on because I just love flowers on my projects!

I wanted to do something different for my roof. I added book page trim and shaped it to look like a big nest. Then I added in some moss and a little birds nest and chipboard birds.

The sides of the birdhouse are embellished as well. I used a lot of elements from the Tim Holtz Ephemera Botanical found in the Elements Add On. I also used my book page fringe along the edges.

Here is a little close up of the front. Isn't she adorable?

Another side view with layers of stencils, florals and ephemera.

I also stamped randomly with the Blue Fern Clear Stamps Halftones found in the Elements Add On.

I stenciled both with paste and distress ink.

I added some wooden feet and painted with the acrylic paint found in the Color Add On.

Hope you are inspired to create one for yourself!

Hello!  It's Nicole again with you today with yet another
creation using products from the Scraps of Elegance 'Mix'd Media' Kit.

From the April SOE kit 'A Song of Spring' Elements Add-On kit,
I used the large Memory Hardware Resin 'Montchamp Imperial' Frame. And from the May SOE kit 'Mix'd Media', I used lots of Prima flowers including the gorgeous Haley flowers from the Floral Add-On as well Timeless Memories Recollections Metal Trinkets also from Prima, among many other products from the kit and its add-ons. Click HERE to find out more about these kits and any current kits.

Now let's look at some close-ups!

I started off with a 9x9 white canvas base and primed it with Gesso.
I then did some stenciling with the Kaisercraft stencil from the main kit and then misted it in gradual tones with different shades of pink.

I then stuck down the frame, then chipboard, flowers, leaves, metal trinkets and popped up the die-cut butterflies with 3D foam squares.

After all my embellishments were stuck down, I sprayed some
spray adhesive and sprinkled some Ranger Primrose Ice Resin
that was part of the April kit as well as 'Blush' micro beads.
The spray adhesive is awesome to help all those little
pieces stick to the canvas and to the embellishments.

As a final touch, I dabbed some white acrylic paint on pretty much
every flower and decoration and around the canvas to create a softer border.

And then you go...
a very 'pretty in pink' canvas with gorgeous Prima blooms
and loads of mixed media texture and colour!
