Mixed Media Panels

Hello crafters! It’s Smitha here with a fun Mixed Media technique. I am creating a smaller mixed media panel in some fun spring colors today!

Supplies used:

I started by trimming my paper down to a smaller size. I am using watercolor paper today, because I plan to add lots of layers to this Mixed Media panel and I don’t want any warping. Then using the Tim Holtz snips I cut down strips of old book papers and patterned papers, glued them onto the panel.

To add some pops of color I added Nuvo Crystal drops in few areas and then smushed it around with a brush (or you can use your fingers too!)

This is a fun way to bring color to your Mixed Media pages.

For the next layer, I stamped a pretty flower with glue and then added the gilding flakes on top. To burnish in the gilding flakes I used a nice bristled brush.

Now it’s time to add some dimension! I love the Nuvo Embellishment mousse- they go on so easily and dry super quick! I layered them onto the page with a pretty stencil.

To make things springy, I added some die cut butterflies. I like to add the negative space in areas, cut some butterflies in half in areas- just to add some interest.

I finished off my panels with a few Nuvo Crystal Drop accents. These were lots of fun to make and turned out pretty cool. And they are small enough that I can add them to a card front even. Let me know in the comments below if you thing these panels are fun to make!
