let it fly

Dear Friends,

This is picture heavy post.

Today I am sharing midpost of May release of Gracellie Designs and a step by step Mixed media tutorial along with Blog hop event of Gracielle Designs.

Here is my Mixed Media art with the butterfly stamps

Stampset which I used is - Persevere

Here is the tutorial

Supplies which i used for this art work

Step 1:Take a plain cardstock and glue the tissue paper above it as displayed below

Step 2. Apply two coats of Gesso over it with a flat brush
Step 3 - Allow it to dry
Step 4- Add the twine(you can use any stencil design instead if you want)
Step 5: Diluted the puffy paint in a mister and misted randomly

Step 6:  Allow it to dry.  In the meantime, print the digis on a cardstock and colour it as you wish.
Then I have added foam putty randomly. Don't use heat gun after this step, it will melt the foam balls.
I did fussy cutting  of the digis and adhered the butterflies over the textured layer with the help of foam tape. Added sentiment to the center which is cut with Gina K Design Stiched oval die.
As i stay in a industrial town and need to purchase all my craft stuffs online, i use every bit of the cardstock

Some close up clicks

Apart from Gesso,i have not used any costly materials for this. You can use any paint/colouring medium 

Hope you like it.
