We have another fun project to share from our Naturals Mixed Media Guest Designer Liz Hicks. Today she shares some ideas that will inspire you to get out your inks, paints, mists, glitter and other art supplies to alter and add our Naturals to many of your own projects. Her tags have such a personal and artsy feel to them and we are just tickled with how Liz used our Naturals in her projects. But first, let's get to know Liz a little bit before we take a look at her wall art idea...
LYB: Are you a morning bird or night owl?
LH: Night owl for sure.
LYB: Computer or handwritten journaling?
LH: Hand written for sure.
LYB: What’s the oddest embellishment you’ve ever used on a page?
LH: Ice Resin was pretty crazy, takes a while to dry but the effect is gorgeous.
Sunshine: I started with a tag, layered with different fabrics, inks and glitters. I took apart on of the white die cut canvas flowers and inked, painted and glittered the elements to create a cute sun.
Remember This: This project I used handmade paper that I added resin to in order to make it translucent. I layered masking tape, muslin, punchinella and canvas LYB borders for the base. from here I added the burlap bird, inked embossed and painted. I used a cardstock title as the sentiment.
Dream Big: For this note card I used the LYB patterned paper as the base and used stamps to create the border. I added the cork pin and made it into a daisy with ink and sequin. to create the focal point frame, I used one of the white canvas embellishments and adhered book print to its sticky side and then trimmed it. I used some of the Art-C glitters for the pink art sheets and added a fun clothes pin to top it all off.
