Frankie Graduation Card Tutorial

June's challenge at Mixed Media Mojo is Graduation with a Travel Twist!!!  I loved this challenge as I got to use embossing folders, Distress Inks, Embossing Powder and loads of great dies! So let's get started!

I used an A7 card and embossed with Tim Holtz Embossing Folder. It has airmail emblems and airplanes on it! Great for a travel card!  Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Aged Mahogany, Chipped Sapphire and Tea Die and went over the card after I had embossed the card.


Then the fun began!  I used Tim Holtz Frankenstein Die for my graduate, MFT Diploma Die, Tim Holtz postal envelope Die, Tim Holtz Mover's and Shakers Die for the Vintage Camera, Globe and Airplane and Tim Holtz Script travel words!


From there I colored in the Globe with Tim Holtz Distress Markers in Salty Ocean and Wild Honey. Then I embossed the globe and script words with clear embossing powder to make them stand out!  I had to cut out the globe twice to get the silver for the outside frame of the globe and then for the globe itself.


Here is the final card and I think it turned out great! This was a lot of fun to make!

Graduation card tutorial

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by today.
Ann here and I've got a quick tutorial for you on how I made my project for our current challenge, Graduation with the added twist of Travel.  Enjoy!

This is what my project looked like:


Step 1 : I used Gel Medium to adhere Tissue Wrap paper to the back of the panel and let it dry.


Step 2 : Simply scribble various colors of distress crayons directly on the surface.  The distress crayons blend beautifully over the Tissue Wrap paper.


Step 3 : Applied Texture Paste through stencil randomly.


Step 4 : Using Chipboard Letter to spell out words "Congrats".


Step 5 : Die cut a piece of foggy silver cardstock using the Earth Globe Shape die.


Step 6 : Stamping the image of girl by Dina Wakley, bachelor cap and diploma by MFT. Coloring with Copic markers.


Step 7 : I made a black tassels and put it on the left upper corner.


Thanks so much for stopping by and hope this inspires you to join in our June Challenge.  I can't wait to see what you make to link up and as always, happy creating!


Hugs & Love


Ann

Journal Page

Hello everyone,

We're back today with a great tutorial and inspiration for the ongoing challenge.



Today we'll take you through the process of creating a journal page.

First prep the page with white gesso.


Next, use a stencil with modelling paste. We focused on the opposite corners.  


We then used another stencil with the same paste for added texture.


Next, sprinkle some magicals and shaker powders and spritz them with water. 


Then layers all your elements and stick them.



Mix a little black gesso with water and add splatter. Use a cap to add some circles on the page with the same gesso.



Here is the completed journal page. 




Hope you're inspired!
Looking forward to seeing your creations!

We now have a facebook group for these challenges, so make sure to drop by there- https://www.facebook.com/groups/248263305651352/
