Mixed media canvas with music in your ears

I have done a mixed media canvas with some ATC cards on top. First I painted a layer with gesso on the canvas and then I used different acrylic paints together with stencils and stamps. This part is so fun, if you are not  satisfied with something at your background canvas you can just repaint with another acrylic paint or gesso or cover it with mists, stencils or stamps and the result became unexpected and unique and hopefully fine:)


I made an ATC with the theme classical music. I choose a beige/brown colorcombo because I think it´s typical classic music. I covered the ATC with sheet music and stamps with music theme.

The second ATC represents rock. I choosed red/white/black and silver to emphasize the theme. I have used a starstencil together with white acrylic paint. I also used sheets music. The big notestamps and the textstamp are from Inkadinkado. I sew the stars with sew easy from We R Memorykeepers.

The third music ATC has a bluestheme with blue/white/black colours. The gituar is from Inkadinkado and the text is alfabetstamps from Prima


Thanks for stopping by!




Christmas card in mixed media style


A couple of days ago I was challenged by Cecilia Ekström to make a christmascard in mixed media style with the colors turqouise and brown, easy peasy NOT:) but here it is:


I covered a bit of cardstock with turqouise acrylic paint. On top of that I used dylusions stencil ”Ooh christmas tree” . The stars are made of another dylusions stencil. I also used my yellow and orange Big Brush Pens for the stars together with acrylic paint. I used a withe pen for all the outlines and for the snow and glitter in the trees. The alphabet is this lite tiny stamps from Prima. I love how they turn out, a little awry:). The striped paper is from Jillibean Soup.

Have you done some christmascards yet? What´s your style? traditional or crazy? Mabye you should get out of your comfortzone and try something new and different this year?
