Mixed Up Magazine Blog Hop!

I hope you are enjoying meeting the Mixed Up Design Team! Welcome to my blog.
As you know, each of us is sharing our favourite makes for Mixed Up today, and the project I’ve chosen to share with you is a canvas I did back in May last year. I haven't shared this one in full previously so here it is!

It's painted in several colours of DecoArt Americana paints, and then stamped with Andy Skinner's stamps and stencils. I moved the stencil 3 times to get the main image in different colours. Some Tando greyboard stars painted to match give some dimension. There was a lot of splattering too!

I’m also showing a sneak peek of something else I’ve got coming up soon!

The Mixed Up website has tons of mixed media projects, including these and many more! If you want to know more pop on over to the website at Mixed Up Magazine.

Crackle Week at Tando


Morning all,

I have a tutorial for you over on the Tando blog today, hop across to find out all the details on how this was done.  I love these new stamps from Illusionary Artists too!

I used an MDF arch blank from Tando for this piece, it lent itself to the stamps perfectly.

There's a lot of texture going on, and plenty of layers!


Hope you can join me to find out more, and catch up with my teamies makes, over at Tando Creative.

Happy Crafting,

Route 66 - Mixed Media Canvas with DecoArt Media Acrylics

Morning everyone,

I'm sharing a piece today that I made for Mixed Up Magazine, for February 2017.  You can still get this issue of the magazine from Pocketmags, and I'd really encourage you to take a look at Mixed Up Mag and subscribe to future issues, it has tons and tons of pages of mixed media inspiration and projects. 

This piece was loosely valentines based, well, it had a heart in it!




This piece even made it to page 66!

Hope you like it, you can check out the full details on how I made it in the magazine.

Have a fab weekend,

Nikki
