Amazing Day Mixed Media Chipboard Scene


Hello, Joy here!  I had the best time creating this mixed media scene using Faber Castell Design Memory Craft products!


I started with some scrap paper that I had leftover from previous projects.  I tore the paper into shapes and adhered it using Glaze.  It's great for gluing and making things shiny!  Next, I painted chipboard with Gesso.  It helped me have a brighter base color for adding a layer of Gelatos.


After the Gesso dried, I covered the board with the Snow Cone Gelato.  To spread the color out a bit more, I painted over the Gelato with water.


I added the torn paper to my chipboard using Glaze.  It's so useful!  I painted the back of the paper and stuck it down, then I covered the front of it too.  That helped me get the edges down well and also provided a  pretty sheen.


I used the Pitt Artist Pen Big Brush in black to color my car stamp.  Then, I stamped my image on a scrap piece of patterned paper and cut it out.


To make the patterned paper have a more cohesive look with the rest of the project, I toned it down by painting it with the Pink Madder Lake Big Brush pen.  I added a little water to thin the color a bit.  I also used Gelatos and more Big Brush pens to help me finish the look of the car.


I added buttons to tops of wooden arrows to make flowers.  I colored directly onto the wooden arrows and hearts with the Big Brush pens.  Aren't they versatile?!  I love them!


I used pop dots to pop up the car and the stamped sentiment.

    I love the whipped spackle!

    So *THAT* is what you are supposed to use that large inner well of the palette for!! I have one just like that that I use all the time, but thought that big well in the middle was rather impractical. Ha!
    Very sweet project. Who knew you could work such magic with Gelatos and Glaze!!!

    I already have more Gelatos on my shopping list, hoping to have a rainbow of them one day and NOW I NEED to try the Glaze too => THANK YOU for sharing your tutorial today and introducing more creative techniques for me to try :)
    PS - the splatters look really cool against your stamping too!!!

  • Linsey R on Altering Embellishments with Glaze!

    HOw fun and cute and artsy--just like the sweet gal who made em!!! I LOVE this idea Tiffany! I'm just now starting to expand with my Gelatos and I'm finding that they are work SO well with, well...like everything!!! Still, I hadn't thought of this creative way to use them yet! I can't think of a store bought embellishment that could beat a homemade one and I can't wait to pull out my very neglected sticker frames and such and start making some of my very own! Thanks for your always amazing inspiration!!! :D
