Mixed Media Art Brush with Silk Foam Flower for Scrap & Craft

Welcome to my creative space!

I've been seeing so many gorgeous mixed media altered paint brushes, that I just had to create one for myself. This started with an inexpensive 3-inch brush with a wooden handle. The handcrafted flowers is my first with Silk Foam from the Scrap & Craft Store. The gorgeous chipboard pieces are also from the store. If you haven't tried one of these art brushes yet, I hope you'll be inspired to give one a try! Scroll down for close-ups and all the details

Tips and Techniques
This handcrafted flower is created with Silk Foam, shaped with the Metal Ball Tool Set, and colored with Distress Oxide inks. The white Mini Stamen are also from the store. 

I don't think I'll be using Distress Oxides to color Foamiran or Silk Foam again even though I adore the colors. Since it is a more permanent ink, my hands were stained for days. :D 

 
The Anemone Fabian Ornaments Chipboard and Artistiko Cog from the Scrap & Craft store are heat embossed with pale gold embossing powder.

The wings are created with Prima Paper Clay in the Prima Wings & Locket Mould, set aside overnight to dry, then brushed with Finnabair's Sparks paint and Wax. Finnabair's metal "Art" piece is also brushed with Sparks Paint and wax. The brush has several layers of Finnabair's Impasto Paints and Sparks Paints along with gesso then finished off with a light brushing of her gold wax.

I used Bambino Glue from the store to adhere Finnabair's Regular and Mini Art Stones around the cluster. I thinned some of the Sparks Paint to brush over the Art Stones, then a light brushing with the gold wax to highlight the texture.

 
 This gorgeous Misz Masz Chipboard Butterfly is brushed with Sparks Paint and the edges with gold art wax. Bambino Glue is a great way to adhere microbeads for a textured body.

The handle of the brush is stenciled with Finnabair's Light Paste. The decorative metal piece is painted and waxed like the rest of the brush and centered with a coordinating rhinestone from my stash.

"Fly" Mixed Media Card featuring Craft O'Clock for Scrap & Craft



Welcome to my creative space!

I have a new project to share today featuring wonderful products from the Scrap & Craft Store featuring the Craft O'Clock ~ Morning Dreams II paper collection which has such gorgeous colors and fabulous images that can be fussy cut to embellish your projects. I've also used chipboard, stamps, and organza trim from the store.

Most of the cards I create are made with a special person in mind, but I do like to keep a few on hand for those unexpected special occasions. With this encouraging sentiment, it could be used for a birthday or really any kind of celebration or milestone event.

Tips and Techniques
I selected delicate Prima flowers to go with the soft colors on the gorgeous background paper and fussy cut flowers, then tucked in a single blossom from the Organza Rose Trim. I just adore this versatile trim that can be used in a strip or cut apart for individual flowers.

I treasure texture, so used Bambino Glue to adhere metal objects, Prills, diecut leafy flourishes, chunky glass glitter, rhinestones, and Finnabair Microbeads and Mica Flakes, around the cluster and across the page.  Do you have a stash of found items like I do? It's so lovely to tuck in an odd found item or two into mixed media projects for a unique touch. I brushed them with Finnabair's Sparks Paint and Art Alchemy Wax to fit in.

These fabulous Scrapiniec Steampunk Flying Hearts Chipboard Wings are heat embossed in pale gold, a perfect accent to the soft teal and pinks.

The background is stenciled with crackle paste, then spritzed with Lindy's Gang Tibetan Poppy Teal and Frozen Jack Frost Starburst mist. Once dry, white ink is spattered across for soft visual texture.

 
I combined the Agateria Grill 3 Stamp with a flourish stamp from my stash to edge the top and bottom of the card using permanent ink. I thought this sentiment was just perfect to go with the chipboard wings in the cluster.

"Shine Brightly" Shabby Mixed Media Card Featuring Studio75 Paper for Scrap & Craft

Welcome to my creative space!

I just adore playing with color, and this gorgeous teal green paper from the Studio75 Berry Copse 6x6" Paper Collection is a perfect backdrop for magenta and gold accents featuring chipboard and flowers from the Scrap & Craft Store.

 Tips and Techniques

I arranged the floral cluster around this gorgeous Craft Molly Zahia chipboard frame. I wanted a few white accents to add lightness to the card, so simply heat embossed the frame in white. I've used a couple flowers from the store including the delicate ivory rose tucked below the sentiment. 

I've also used 49 and Market, Prima, and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers from my stash in the cluster with Prima pearls tucked in along with a couple Finnabair Mechanical pieces rubbed with her Amethyst Magic Antique Brilliance Wax.

Prima Paper Clay was formed in the Prima Baroque mold then painted with Finnabair's Ginger Magic Sparks Paint and rubbed with her Amethyst Wax.

I colored a white Apple Blossom with color mist and paint to coordinate. Bambino Glue was brushed around the cluster to adhere Prima Finnabair Art Stones, Mini Art Stones and seed beads for texture.

Additional texture was created by mixing Finnabair Gold Mica Powder into her 3D Matte Gel to stencil onto the background. While wet, I sprinkled with Finnabair Gold Microbeads. Since gel medium can work as an adhesive the beads are well adhered to the card.

The Scrapiniec Confetti Hearts are so versatile! I added three layers of color before scattering them around the cluster. I started with a layer of teal embossing powder, followed by teal glitter embossing powder, then one edge is brushed with Finnabair's Gold Metallique Wax. 

I also added pearls, rhinestones, and Finnabair Mica Flakes from my stash adhered with Bambino Glue.

I backed the card front with a fabulous Studio75 15x15cm Blank Card. These white cards are super heavy and hold up the weight of all my embellishments perfectly.

The background is stamped randomly with a script stamp and edged with a leafy scrolled design from Blue Fern Studios, then spattered with white drawing ink. I've also tucked in leafy white die cuts.

Masculine Industrial Mixed Media Tag for Scrap & Craft

“Embrace the Journey” DIY Industrial Steampunk Home Decor Tag by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft featuring Studio75 Paper: #studio75 #scrapiniec #agateria #mixedmedia #mixedmediatag #arttag #steampunk #industrialsteampunk #chipboard #Finnabair #Primamarketing #homedecor #timholtz #rust #rustart #lindysgang #lindysstampgang #rangerink #stampendous #spellbinders #helmar #scrapbookadhesivesby3l
Welcome to my creative space!

I enjoy getting grungy with masculine designs. This tag is a graduation gift for the son of a good friend. I just adore this senior portrait taken of him on a bridge with the industrial red beams. The Tim Holtz tag board is rather large at 6 1/2" wide by 12" high so is a great home decor piece featuring the Studio75 Cherry Blossom Collection as well as chipboardstamps, and brick stencil from the Scrap & Craft Store. A complete product list can be found below.

Tips and Techniques

I wanted to bring in a grungy industrial feel to go with the gorgeous bridge in the photo so the gears in the Scrapiniec Flying Hearts Set were just perfect. This is one long strip of gears that I cut to frame the corner of the photo. The chipboard was heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Taupe enamel for an old metal feel. 

Around the tag edges, I stamped with the Grille and Grille 3 stamp with grey ink.

The Small Brick Stencil with Finnabair's Light Paste is a perfect accent on the background. It's spritzed with Lindy's Black Orchid Silver and Autumn Maple Crimson Starburst spray to highlight the texture. These colors were also used to add spatter texture. The dark paper behind the photo came from the 6x6" Studio75 Cherry Blossom Paper Set and was torn to size then inked with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink to tone down the bright white edges.

The circle piece was diecut from chipboard and enameled with more of the aged taupe powder. I found a roll of back plastic mesh at a flea market that's great for masculine pieces. I cut and brushed a couple bits with art wax to tuck under the photo.

The small stars are from the Scrapiniec Confetti Stars Set. There are just a ton of little stars in this set that can be used so many different ways to go with any project. Here I brushed them with Finnabair's Rust Effect Paste so they look like rusty metal.

I have a bag of rusty washers collected by my friend's husband who knows I adore rust. I just had to use them for their son's gift. At the bottom of the bag I noticed flakes and bits of rusty goodness. I brushed Bambino Glue around the washers and sprinkled the rusty bits into the glue for texture. The washer is topped with a barn star and gear. To make it look like the washer had rusted in place, I brushed some Rust Effect Paste around the washer and spritzed with water.

More rusty goodness. A piece of chunky silver chain from my stash was brushed with more rust effect paste to color.

The tag background is from the 12x12" Studio75 Cherry Blossom Paper Set. I traced and cut the paper then used soft matte get to adhere the paper to the tag. Rolling with a brayer made sure the paper was adhered securely. Once the gel was completely dry, the edges were lightly sanded then inked. 

The vintage key was still somewhat shiny, so I brushed it with Rust Effect Paste and placed it atop another of the fab rusty washers.

This cool gear came from the Artistiko Cogs Set made from HDF board. I just adore the fabulous gear shapes in this set. It was heat embossed with metallic bronze powder with just a hint of black mixed in.

The sweet floral cluster includes Magnolia Flowers and an Ivory Mulberry Rose from the store along with a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers from my stash. I tucked a few Prima Pearls into the empty spots.

The soft Organza Rose Trim is so lovely. Every girl loves some bling, so I added a sparkling rhinestone to the center of each blossom. 

The lovely Anemone Gaja Ornament chipboard is heat embossed with aged ivory embossing enamel, then the edges rubbed with Finnabair's Vintage Gold Wax. Don't be afraid to cut up your chippies. I snipped this one in half to extend out on each side of the cluster. The Scrapiniec Confetti Hearts include a ton of little hearts in three sizes. I heat embossed several in Raspberry and brushed with more of the gold wax.

Of course there needs to be a fluttering insect on any summery project. This Misz Masz Butterfly Chipboard Die Cut is embossed in aged ivory, then edged with raspberry and a touch of white gold wax over the body with a little rhinestone to add more bling.

The Violet Love background paper was dry brushed with white gesso, then stamped with two of the Agateria Grille stamps. I also added some spatter with Lindy's Gang Moonlit Mulberry Moon Shadow Mist and white drawing ink.

This delightful sentiment was cut from the 12 x12 Violet Love Paper Collection and edged with wisteria ink. The Anemone Fabian Chipboard Ornament is so perfect to anchor the sentiment. 

Bambino Glue is used to adhere texture elements from the Prills and Finnabair Microbeads around the flowers to the Confetti Hearts, mica shards, rhinestones, and sequins scattered around the card for texture.

"Dream of Being More" Mixed Media Graduation Card/Home Decor for Scrap & Craft

Summery Mixed Media Graduation Card/Home Decor by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft: #studio75 #handmadecard #mixedmedia #mixedmediacard #shabbychic #shabbychiccard #papercrafting #flowercard #chipboard #lindysgang #lindysstampgang #Finnabair #Primamarketing #wildorchidcrafts #helmar #artanthology #usartquestprills #bluefernstudios  #agateria #scrapiniec #timholtz #rangerink
Welcome to my creative space!

Today I'm sharing a two in one shabby mixed media piece. It's an oversized mixed media graduation card, reinforced with an extra layer of 110lb cardstock so it can be placed on an easel to brighten up a mantel or desk. Rather than using a congratulations or graduation sentiment on the front, I stamped this inspirational sentiment that is perfect for a home decor piece as well as an encouragement to the graduate.

The sweet floral cluster includes Magnolia Flowers, and Pale Pink Mulberry Roses from the Scrap & Craft Store. The gorgeous background paper is from the Craft O'Clock ~ Morning Dreams II Paper Collection. I also fussy cut flower images from the collection to layer under the cluster. The background and borders are stamped with Grille and Grille 3 Stamps from the store. I added a touch of teal color with PanPastels around the edges as well.

Bambino Glue dries clear and is just perfect for adhering texture with Prills and microbeads along with sequins, half pearls, and flakes of teal mica scattered onto the background.

From this angle you can see Pearl Stamens from the store that I tucked in under the rosebuds. I just adore the chipboard from Scrapiniec's Doily Lace Corner Set that I heat embossed in teal, then topped with another layer of blue glittered embossing powder. 

I collect odds and ends to use in my paper crafting from a variety of different sources. The decorative crystal and pearl stick pin is for wedding decor. I also tucked in a couple seashells I found at the shore on one of our vacations as well as a few flowers from my stash. A while back I crocheted some sweet little flowers and came across them recently. I couldn't resist adding one at the edge of the paper flowers.

The sentiment is stamped with Versafine black ink onto watercolor paper. Once dry, I spritzed with water and brushed with M. Graham watercolors, then tore around the words to expose the creamy white paper edges. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Foam Squares are used to raise up the sentiment so it sits nicely over the twine wrapped around the card.

I used Finnabair's Light Molding Paste with the Studio75 Small Brick Stencil to add texture and when dry spritzed with Lindy's Gang Starburst Mist, then spattered with white ink.

I got artsy with these sweet summery dragonflies. They're stamped the dragonfly image from Prima's Stamp-N-Add Butterfly Wings Stamps onto watercolor paper, then colored with blue and teal watercolors. It was a bit of extra work to fussy cut them, but well worth the effort! I wanted something shimmery, so added teal seed beads to the long slender bodies with Bambino Glue.

"Life is Wonderful" Mixed Media Tag for Scrap & Craft

Mixed Media Tag by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft: #mixedmedia #mixedmediatag #shabbychic #gifttag #papercrafting #chipboard #studio75 #lindysgang #lindysstampgang #Finnabair #Primamarketing #agateria #Foamiran #Foamiranflowers #handmadeflowers #handcraftedflowers #timholtz #rangerink #dustyattic #usartquestprills #helmar 
Welcome to my creative space!

I've created a shabby mixed media tag featuring Studio75 The Peony Avenue Collection along with stamps, chipboard, flowers, and trim from the Scrap & Craft store. A complete product list can be found at the bottom of this post.

I am so happy to finally work with Foamiran to create flowers. I created the large rose in the cluster and have a DIY video tutorial for these beautiful roses that you can view HERE. The Scrap & Craft store has a full line of Foamarin and flower making supplies HERE.

 This beautiful focal rose is one of the first flowers I created with Foamiran. You can view my DIY video tutorial with tips on working with this fabulous product HERE.

I tucked in paper roses from the store along with one trimmed from Studio75 Organza Rose Trim. I had a few gaps around my cluster and a single organza rose cut in half filled those empty spaces perfectly. I also fussy cut flower and leaf images from bonus sheets in the Studio75 The Peony Avenue Collection paper set.

I adore mixing up textures and tucked in a couple fluffy white feathers along with one I molded from paper clay brushed with Finnabair's white gold art wax. The cluster is built atop a layer of wispy cheesecloth for even more texture.

The gorgeous Craft Molly Floral Corners Chipboard is heat embossed with Stampendous Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel. I've also added texture with Prima pearls, Prills, microbeads, glitter shards, Dusty Attic mini chipboard butterflies, and sequins.

I stamped the background using Grille stamps from the Scrap & Craft store.

The background was stenciled with transparent crackle medium over a Tim Holz Stone Layering Stencil, then brushed with Lindy's Frosty Forest Green and Alpine Ice Rose Shimmer Sprays. I have a large collection of Lindy's sprays and adore how I can coordinate their gorgeous colors to my papers and elements. I also added spatters with white drawing ink then distressed the edges and colored with PanPastels.

Vintage Mixed Media Father's Day Card for Scrap & Craft with Studio75 Cherry Blossom Collection

Welcome to my creative space!

Father's Day is this Sunday, so I've created a special vintage card for my dad featuring the fabulous Studio75 Cherry Blossom Collection from the Scrap & Craft Store. This collection is great for both feminine and masculine themed projects.

Tips and Techniques
Vintage Mixed Media Father’s Day Card by Tracey Sabella for Scrap & Craft featuring the Studio75 Cherry Blossom Collection:#studio75  #fathersday #fathersdaycard #fathersdaycards #mixedmedia #mixedmediacard #masculinecard #masculinecards #finnabair #finnabairproducts  #primamarketing #primamarketinginc #handmadecards #handmadecard #vintagecard #vintagecards  #steampunkcard #steampunkcards
I used a couple sheets from the Studio75 6x6" Cherry Blossom paper set. The script page was brushed with clear gesso, then lightly dry brushed with white gesso to lighten the script. Liquitex Black Lava Texture Gel is used with a Labrynth stencil from The Crafter's Workshop to add graphic masculine texture. I used the black designed paper to back the lighter paper after trimming out the center which I used to die cut the gears. Several colors of art wax are rubbed over the gears to give a metallic aged, rusty feel. 

I added Finnabair rusty stars and blades layered with gears, snaps, and stars. While the base pieces had a rust finish, the smaller pieces did not, so I brushed them with Finnabair Rust Effects Paste and added water that dripped down onto the paper making them look like they had rusted there. Of course I had to add a bit of rustic texture and used Bambino Glue to adhere Prills and Finnabair Microbeads. This strong glue dries clear and is perfect for this task.

I brushed black gesso over this chipboard hinge and while wet, heated with a heat tool until it bubbled to give a grungy texture. It took several coats of bubbled gesso to achieve this texture. It was then brushed with patina effects paste and then several colors of art wax. The chipboard piece had small holes. I inserted black mini brads through the holes, rusty wire mesh pieces, and background paper to adhere the pieces. A bit of copper art wax over the brads adds to the vintage feel.

The sentiment is stamped onto kraft paper and the torn edges rubbed with distress ink. The boy is from the Tim Holtz Paper Doll pack.

I hope you've been inspired to pull out your Scrap & Craft supplies
to create a card for a special dad in your life.
