Hello! It's Crew Member Wednesday again and today it's Marsha's turn with a really cool holiday season project! I am totally in love with her colourful stars and the best part is they are super easy to make! And why not use hearts or flags to create a birthday banner? Have fun creating your own eye catching banner!
Hi there! It’s Marsha Valk here today with a project that will add a dash of mixed media to your holiday decor.
This month the theme is ‘Imagine a World Where…’ And that got me I thinking: the holiday season is approaching fast (or maybe it has already started for you). Your creative playtime could be limited over the next couple of weeks.
Now imagine a world where... you could sneak in a bit of mixed media me-time whilst working on holiday decorations!
The cardboard stars I used were pre-cut and came in a sheet, but you can easily cut them yourself from a cardboard box.
I suggest painting the cardboard panel first so you can cut the stars out of the painted board.
Apply (random) patches of paint all over the cardboard. Keep your colour palette limited to just cool or just warm colours and try not to overthink this step.
Add a layer of stencilled images. Switch from cool to warm or from warm to cool colours, depending on what you used in step 1.
Add a third layer by making paint marks with a brush or paint markers.
Cut the stars (or remove them from the pre-cut sheet).
Stamp one or more images onto each star using embossing ink.
Sprinkle white embossing powder on top, tap off the excess powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Attach string to each of the stars and find them a beautiful place to shine!
