An Artsy Mini of Quotes


Back at the beginning of summer, I did a short promo video talking about what I wanted to do this summer - basically using all the stuff I've collected. One of the things I wanted to use was a small Bo Bunny chipboard mini.  I bought it along with a larger one I did for my Mother of her older photos.

Being such a small size, I was stumped on what to do with it. I asked on a message board and someone suggested mixed media.  I'd been thinking it would be fun to do something like this without much of a plan.  Just play.  I couldn't figure out what photos to use so I didn't use any.  I used quotes.  I found them on Pinterest.  They are things that speak to me right now.

So here are some of the pages.  There's also a video showing how I did many but not all of the pages. It goes at a faster pace than most of my videos.  It isn't super detailed but shares many of the processes.  And there are plenty of photos at the end.  Here are a few.

At the beginning, I shared several stamps I planned to use.  It was really the stencils I reached for over and over. the Be Free page uses a mix of gelatos and modeling paste.

This is my favorite page.  The border is made up of clear Stickles alternated with silver Perfect Pearls.  It was so easy and has a pretty overall look.

I did do a little stamping to create these leaves and flowers.

Here are those odds and ends Thickers!  I just can't seem to make myself mix them up like this on a scrapbook page.

The background here didn't quite go like I wanted so I stenciled over some gesso to fix it.

The yellow modeling paste was left over from one of the other pages.

And here is the video on YouTube:

So I have this by my bedside so I can look at quotes.  It was a fun and freeing project.  Thanks for stopping by!
