Listen To Your Heart Mixed Media Tag

Hey Crafty Friends I'm here with another Mixed Media project I created for Finnabair's Art Recipe Challenge for April.  I really love this challenge because it truly is a challenge for me,  the colors are not what I usually grab to create with.  I had to dig in and create something for this challenge!  
I used Prima and Finnabair packaging for my "canvas" to create a tag.  I used Finnabair's Floral Net stencil although you can only see a hint of it.  I painted my mould shapes with Finnabair Acrylic paint and then added FinnabairWax.  Then I heat embossed green and lavender to my chipboard piece then added Art Alchemy Acrylic paint in Fairy Wings to add to the chipboard panel.  

I used Finnabair's Decorative Flutter Tissue paper,  cut it out and glued it with 3D Soft Gel onto black cardstock then cut it out.  I cut it in half and started placing some of my embellishments for my design.  This added a nice beginning layer for all my other elements.

For my "Wings" mould pieces I added more of Finnabair's decorative Flutter Tissue Paper to the wings using 3D Soft Gel.  

I grabbed my Art Ingredients Gold Leaf Mica Flakes along with beads,  glitter and microbeads to add more bling and texture.

I added more Finnabair embellishments for more interest.

I flicked some Art Alchemy Acrylic paints for sprinkles and splats of paint.

I also used a lid from Finnabair's Art Pebbles jar and I cut it to make it look like a flower.

So "Listen To Your Heart" and go play along with Finnabair's Art Recipe Challenge!  Check out the talented DT too!!!

Mixed Media Canvas *Courage*

Hey Crafty Friends!  Hope all is well with you and getting some crafting time in!  
I joined the challenge at Lindy's Stamp Gang April 2020.  
Did you see the colors and inspiration?  Gorgeous colors!

I decided to use a rectangle canvas!  I started with some Plaster Paste and White Crackle Texture past for the background.  Then I added sprays,  magical shaker and embossing powder.

I also added embossing powder to the chipboard pieces,  I always love mixing Lindy's Embossing powders they are amazing!

Here is a close up of how I mixed the embossing powders.

You can see a hint of pink and that's where I added embossing powder,  it gave it a frosted look.

I added lots of embellishments to add more dimension and also love to add beads,  sequins and microbeads for more interest.

I hope you get a chance to join the fun at Lindy's Stamp Gang!
Here is a list of products I used from Lindy's Stamp Gang:
