Today we have a beautiful mixed-media project by our very own Marie-Nicolas Alliot in France.
If you have never worked with mixed media you need to grab some of Prima's MM products! Our canvas pieces have a beautiful resist pattern, along with a whole variety of MM books, inserts and tags!
Marie-Nicolas even provided some FABULOUS tips on how to re-create this look!
Today, I will show you how I customize a Mixed-Media Book; covers and inside.
To stain the cover: I use a color spray (Glimmer Mist or Dylusions.) I love the bright colors! After, I add some splashes with black china ink (India Ink.) China Ink is a very saturated black ink and adds lots of boldness. Now I just add some Prima flowers & crystals to complete my covers!
Inside Pages: Use watercolor to paint some of the inside canvas pages.
Then add some stamping with Prima's stamps and Chalk Edgers.
Masking with Prima's new masks is FUN! Try a variety of art mediums with your mask. After masking add your titles-My titles are cut with my Silhouette Cameo from paper. (Use whatever color you love.)
After gluing the titles down, I add Glossy Accents over them for more shine and dimension.
If you have a die-cut machine you can make some custom touches. I added some die cut shapes that I made with my Silhouette Cameo on this inside page.
I also added LOTS of masking with Prima's masks!
After coloring just add some embellishements : Prima flowers, wood buttons and crystals are perfect! Little things like these will customize this album. :-) Marie-Nicolas
