mixed media canvas – envelopes with flowers

Hi! On my “mixed media Tuesday” video today I created a page that I framed to decorate my craft room.

It has lots of dimension and I created everything by shopping my stash… I looked for and used things that I have collected over the years, including stamps, inks, papers, dies, ephemera and even paper flowers. It’s a fun project that you can follow step by step and re-create something similar with what you have.

    Hi Vicky, I love this project and I need decorations in my new craft room as well. Since my daughter moved out I switched rooms and this room is so big I have plenty of space!
    Love all things Tim Holtz and just love making things, this project will be made tomorrow for sure! I started out with just cards as well but now I do all kinds of crafts!
    Thank you so much for your inspiration!
    With love
    Pascale

    I remember your first mixed media video — I [heart] card making! What a journey you’ve been on and you are such an inspiration. I’m so glad you followed your heart and I get to follow your creative journey. It’s been an absolute delight. After I get settled into my new home I hope to be making some special pieces that reflect more of who I am and what’s important to me so your Tuesday video series is timely for me!!!. I too appreciate your reminder to “shop [my] stash”!! Hard to believe you made a piece that doesn’t have stenciling, splashes or your infamous white gel pen highlights(!!!) … and yet it is so you!! Thank you for sharing all the tips and ideas as well as your process. I read on another blog post that you are considering doing a workshop tour in the USA once it is safe to travel again. That has to be the most exciting news I’ve heard in a LONG time. I’m keeping my fingers, toes and eyes crossed that I will be able to attend one. If there’s anything I can do to help you pull that together, I would be happy to do what I can. Thank you, Vicky
