Andy Skinner is an incredible Mixed Media Artist that created a line of stamps with Stampendous! Therefor giving all of us the opportunity to more easily create amazing mixed media pieces!! These stamps combined with Deco Art paints can help you create projects worthy of being called fabulous!!! THE MEDIA PAINT is great for tinting embossing pastes as well. I created a 12x12 canvas project about my adorable grandson DJ.
I loved how layering the Deco paint created this faux rust kind of look, and combined with Andy Skinners chipped paint stamp and some black ink, the paint looks much older than it is. To see more on how to do this awesome technique check out this tutorial by Andy Skinner HERE.
I used Stampendous Wood Grain Stamp to create this faux wood frame. It compliments the rustic picture of my adorable grandson.
I also used Dreamweaver Gears Stencil and Silver Embossing Paste to add some visual interest to the layout. I used Dreamweaver Maple Leaf Stencil to trace onto cardstock, cut out 5 of them, glue them together to make a thick leaf. I then spread White Embossing Paste over the leaf and stamped it with Stampendous Elegant Scroll stamp. Once it was dry I used Deco Art paints to layer colors onto it.
