Craft Room Decor – Create

Hello all,

It’s Friday, another week down.  The summer seems to be flying by, doesn’t it?  This week, I wanted to make something pretty to go into my craft room.  I found the word “Create” (done in wood) as well as a Chip Decor Arrow at my local craft store and thought that this would be a great place to start.  I then added some paint, texture and flowers to finish up this decor piece.  Check out the Quick Tips Mixed Media Video below for the step by steps!

Create Mixed Media Art Panel with Patina Frame

Hello all,

Posting today to share with you a Mixed Media Art Panel made with lots of bits and pieces paired with great texture and layers.  The frame was painted with home made patina mediums (made with acrylic paint, texture powder and sand).  Of course, you could always use a Patina kit, rather than making your own mediums.  Kits are a great option and decreases the tension of trying something new!  Be sure to check out the Mixed Media Quick Tips video below for the step by steps.
