Blue mixed media canvas with embossed elements and the words

Rebel Genius Canvas with Stamped Embossing

To create this cool Rebel Canvas I used the new MBoss Hologram embossing powder with a fun, classic technique to create a stamped impression in the embossing powder. The new Hologram embossing powder is soooo gorgeous and fun to use. I love that the new MBoss packaging allows for precision application and easy cleanup!

Selfie themed scrapbook layout with a hand-built mixed media background

Mixed Media Selfie Scrapbook Background Layout

It has been such a long time since I have done a scrapbook layout. I really miss doing them! I used several different Imagine products to create the background for my layout: Creative Medium, Fireworks Shimmery Craft Sprays, Delicata, Brilliance, VersaMagic, and StazOn Pigment Ink. Watch my video below for details on how I created this fun background for my Selfie themed layout.

Decorated canvas made with a galaxy theme using StazOn Pigment on Black Chalk.

Galaxy Themed Mixed Media Canvas

I used StazOn Pigment ink in many of the gorgeous, vibrant new colors on a black chalkboard background and the colors look fantastic! You can even see the purple on black...WHAT?! You have to see for yourself. This project couldn't have been created successfully without the new StazOn Pigment ink. It is opaque, so it shows up great on dark surfaces AND it has all of the wonderful properties that the original StazOn has—it can be applied to many different surfaces and dries quickly. I think I've found a new obsession.

Handmade sympathy card featuring stenciled raindrops using VersaFine Clair and a hugging bear and bunny image colored with Copic Markers

Sympathy Card using VersaFine Clair and Copic Markers

Today, I share how to use VersaFine Clair in multiple ways! This fabulous ink allows for crisp clean stamping. However, it also can be used over many mediums including Alcohol Markers, like Copics. It works wonderfully for embossing sentiments even on vellum and can be used under many mediums such as Perfect Medium. Today, I share a few of my favorite techniques using VersaFine Clair.

Mixed Media statement piece with a quote, made by upcyclcing a piece of packaging.

Upcycled Mixed Media Statement Piece

The inspiration for this piece was the quote I included on the canvas. I am forever on the lookout for inspiring and uplifting quotes. Things that make you think, or give you the push you need to move forward. I really also love working with upcycled materials. We don't need more trash in the landfills, right?! I knew that my Imagine mixed media products would work wonders to make this piece come alive! When i'm working with resin pieces, I always reach for my Fireworks sprays and All-Purpose Ink. They both cover beautifully. This quote on the canvas is very near to my heart and all of the elements came together perfectly to give it a home.

Mixed Media Tag for Valentines

I'm always looking for different textures to include in my paper crafting projects. It's a fun challenge for me and this tag really brought some interesting textures together in a great way! I can always count on Imagine to have just the right product to bring gorgeous color to these textures. Fireworks spray really shines when used over a stencil textured background. You will see in this video, I add a little water and the shimmer and pigment will settle in between the shapes, giving great depth to this tag. I also really love that I can layer different colors of Fireworks spray over the top of each other. I used irRESISTible Pico Embellisher on the wire mesh texture to give it a little bit of color.  It's just thick enough to fill the holes and looks fantastic! I wanted the resin hearts to be stark white and stand out so I used All-Purpose Ink in White, which provided great coverage and opacity. Watch my video today and like and share if you enjoy it!

Handmade winter snow themed card featuring spinning snowflakes.

Snowflake Spinner Card

I adore blue and silver as a holiday color scheme (or any time of year, for that matter). I created this card with a frosted-looking inside scene (courtesy of Creative Medium mixed with VersaColor) and a fun spinner element in the front-panel frame. The Rinea foiled paper is sturdy enough to hold its shape, even when cut so delicately, making this card a real display piece for the holidays.

A handmade mixed media style holiday card featuring a penguin image and blue colors.

Penguin Mixed Media Holiday Card

Winter is right around the corner and I love when the snow covers the landscape! When I received the Frosted sampler pack of Rinea papers, I couldn't resist making a winter card with a cute penguin stamp. I didn't have white Creative Medium to make my snowflake background, so I mixed some All-Purpose Ink in the clear Creative Medium and achieved great results! I created a wintery background with Doodlestix, a Gelli Press, All-Purpose Inks, and Fireworks sprays from Imagine.

Handmade mixed media style autumn themed card

Metallic and Distressed Autumnal Greeting Card

I love making mixed media cards! It is a smaller canvas to work with and you can experiment with different products together. Imagine always has just the right tools for this beautiful copper metallic and golden-hued theme! For November, Imagine is working with Rinea papers and I am having so much fun experimenting with how they emboss and handle ink products! I used the Walnut spray and Creative Medium on the Rinea paper and made a beautiful fall card.

Beautiful Mixed Media Artist Trading Coins

Artist Trading Coins are very popular right now and so fun! I love having different shapes to work with to create fun projects. Of course, Imagine supplies pair perfectly with these ATC Coins to create a cute banner to decorate your space. Use Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray and Creative Medium to apply great colors and textures to your background. StazOn Ink is always the perfect choice when you need a permanent ink for your mixed media project.
