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.
