ID: Mixed Media Phone Stand

Created: September 20, 2019

I took a 2hour mini workshop at "The Paper And Ink Boutique" here in Calgary this week. Loved it. The class was taught by Tracy Moreau who is a Deco Art ambassador. 

Granted I'm not really in to mixed media, and I don't own a mobile/cell phone... but I thoroughly enjoyed this class. The image below is what the sample looked like and everyone except me did there's like the sample. When I looked at the image I gathered my supplies with similar items but in my own style. BIG GRIN.

I also brought my own acrylics. But have since purchased the Deco Art Media acrylic paints which are translucent but vibrant.


Step 1: Paint a dark color onto the stand. We all used black. Dry

Step 2: Streak white paint all over leaving some small areas of black.  The white allows the future colors to pop. If you want  more subdued look, omit the white...

Step 3: Stamp some text and other images (I used open circle borders) randomly (I used Versafine Clair "Nocturne" (everyone else used Staz-On)

Step 4: Stencil lightly (ghost type painting) with white paint. I used the harlequin stencil supplied as well as Tim Holtz "Flourish"

Step 5: Now paint with the media paints using some water to apply them very sparingly. Adding layer upon layer of color till you get to what you want. I used similar colors but regular acrylics... (paints used by everyone else "Vermillion"; "Dioxazine Purple"; "Cobalt Blue"; "Primary Magenta"; "Green Gold"; "Hemp Black")

Step 6: spatter with white paint. I also painted the edges of the stand with Golden's Gold paint.

Step 7: cut out the butterflies from a book text  paper - I die cut some Memory Box butterflies. I adhered to stand with Golden Gel Medium Gloss, then applied some over the rest of the stand lightly.

Step 8: adhered the text word. I stamped Roann Mathias "Imagine" word onto white paper with the Nocturne pad and clear embossed then fussy cut in a wavy line.

Step 9: shadow and highlight areas with pencil or white gel pen etc, blend. Sponge some color onto the wings lightly - just a hint of color.
