Everythings Blooming Mixed Media Tutorial for Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello, Friends!  Instead of our usual Throwback Thursday, today I have a step by step Everythings Blooming Mixed Media Tutorial to share with you.  Once again, we’re playing with goodies from Annette Green’s new collection from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I thought you might enjoy seeing how to use the stamps and dies to create a mixed media project for a junk journal, card, mini album or wall hanging.  Sound good?

We’ll be playing with the fabulous Playful Flowers Dies again today as I show you how to create this button flower.  But we’ll also be using stamps from the Happy, Bloom and Honeybee sets as well as the Everyday Words,  Fancy Flourishes and Lace Borders Dies.

Do you like playing with Distress Inks?  Well, the first step in this Everythings Blooming Mixed Media tutorial is building an inky background with Distress Oxide Inks.  It’s loads of fun, and a great tool to have in our toolbox.

It’s been a while since I took on a mixed media project of this size (about 5″ x 7″) and I really had a good time.

So grab  your Mixed Media Boots out of the Closet, put on an apron and get ready to make a glorious inky mess with me!

Did you have fun?  I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.

You can find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Luv how your blooming mixed media card turned out!!! It looks like so much fun to create …and it’s awesome! Someone’s having a bunch of fun with these new dies and stamps. I had forgotten about those clear stamp platforms …you make everything look fun to create! And yes this would look great in a junk journal! Or a card! Thanks for more genius inspiration! Hugs, Suzy Q

    I thoroughly enjoyed watching this tutorial and the process of creating the mixed media piece. As I watched you build the layers, there a couple of times where I thought “wait!…It doesn’t need anymore ink or stamping!” But…as you continued, I could see the texture deepen and layers add dimension. I loved the process so much and the result is so interesting and creative. I would never have thought to layer stamens between petals to create buds but it also worked so well. I haven’t yet dabbled in mixed media but have purchased some new products to give it a try and this video was just what I needed to inspire me. Thank you for new ideas!

    I’ve got my eye on the Honeybee stamps. Do you know if there are coordinating dies? Did you fussy-cut yours for these posts? Are you having fun or what?!

    Ooooh you are having fun with these new supplies. The ink combinations are gorgeous, and I am loving those blooms. This is one of those projects where I want to pick it up and touch all the elements, angle it this way and that to see all the layers. Love it Kathy! It is cold here too, we are in New Zealand and my it is much colder than home, autumn is here.
