How to Create a Mixed Media Card

Step 1: Add drops of paint in different colors to your cardbase.

Step 2: Use your finger to swirl and blend the colors.

Step 3: After your paint dries, use gesso to go over your stencil to add texture. Do this on the top and bottom of your cardbase.

Step 4: Add paint to your finger and then create circles. Do this 4 times.

Step 5: Use the circle stencil to create half circles on top of your pink dots. Then, add extra detail with a black marker to create flowers.

Step 6: Add a sentiment and then adhere your panel to your cardbase.

See how easy mixed media can be! You can incorporate these techniques using products from the Vicki Boutin Mixed Media line into a card, scrapbook layout, and more. Just have fun and see where your creativity takes you!
