  Hi Creative Scrapbooker Fans!!!! Pam Bray here sharing “Dream Big Dreams” Mixed Media Card featuring Wild Whisper A Girl With Flair Watercolor patterned paper and Emerald Creek Craft Supplies Rock Candy Embossing Powder. Creating the background paper for this mixed media card is super easy using a Gelli Art Press Printing Press, DecoArt Paint, and brayer.  1. Begin by applying Titanium paint to the top of the Gel Printing Press;  move around with brayer. Add a bit of paint here and there to achieve the colors on the press you like. 2. Press white cardstock to the top; pull off and set to one side. Repeat with a clean piece of cardstock. 3. Stamp background collage stamp to top of the prepared paper using Titanium White and Cadmium Red to the top. 4. Stamp here and there. Adhere prepared paper to Wild Whisper Watercolor Paper to green cardstock. Adhere…

Happy Day! Kim here on the blog today sharing a quick little card that was so satisfying to make! Why? Because I love dabbling in mixed media art supplies and when I can bring it into a card to give, it’s a win-win! First I cut a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock to work from. This 110 lb, bright white cardstock is my go-to foundation for scrapbooking and cardmaking. It holds up to everything I throw at it, it is my ‘workhorse’ in my craft room. I added a thin layer of gesso with an old credit card. I added 3 small blobs [such a technical term!] of acrylic paint to my Tim Holtz glass mat. I used a wet brush to add my paint to the background. Honestly, this step could also be done with a dry brush, it would give more opaque coverage. I like the colour…

Welcome to another exciting technique filled Tuesday with the Team.  Nicole Wright here sharing how to use a gel plate to enhance your pattern paper for a mixed media vibe.  Using pattern paper as a “base layer” to your next project you can create more depth with paint.  Thus, coordinating your paper and paints to anything you create.  Follow along and see how I created a Mixed Media Floral Wreath. 1 For this technique, I will be using Media Assemblage pattern paper (more info on that at the bottom of this post) and Dina Wakely Media Acrylic Paint by Ranger Ink. Apply paint to the Gel Plate as seen above.  You can brayer the paint to blend or use your finger.  Add texture to the paint with texture combs. 2 Once the paint is blended and textured, lay the paper right over top.  Rub your hand across the paper to…

It is great fun filling your art journal but what about the cover? Hey makers, Nicole Wright here and in this post, I will be showing you how to add bling to your Art Journal cover.  I have adorned my cover with Finnabair Mixed Media products from Prima Marketing Inc.  It’s all about the layers so take that creative leap and express yourself. I used my Iris Tapestry stencil as my base layer.  Here, you can add patterns randomly to your journal using Art Extravagance Golden Nugget and the Mixed Media Silicon Brush. A layer of dictionary paper is applied with Soft Gloss Gel.  Spray the page with a little water until damp, tear and apply the Soft Gloss Gel on the top and bottom of the paper. I created flowers using the Cherry Blossom Mould using hot glue in a pinch.  There are a lot of Moulds to check…

Hello friends! Welcome to the Creative Scrapbooker blog.  It’s Karan Gerber here today to share a rusty tag project with you featuring Prima Marketing Rust Paste. I hope you like what I have designed for you today. I have been feeling somewhat rusty lately, LOL and by saying that I mean, I have been using the Rust Paste from Prima Marketing on a lot of my projects lately.  This little jar of goodness is really easy to use, you just need to apply it in a dabbing motion, and heat set or let dry and this is what the end result looks like. It’s super easy to use and the effect is pretty incredible. Here is a sneak peek. The base of this tag is a Tim Holtz Etc tag measuring 4.5 x 8. I then covered it with gel medium and placed Rice Paper from Ciao Bella  ( Oxido…

Good Morning Creative Scrapbookers! It’s a gorgeous day in Alberta, after some not so nice ones! I thought it would be nice to celebrate this beautiful morning with a creative space share from here, in our own stomping grounds! Today’s ‘Where You Create’ is from Paula Doran, in the lovely community of Sherwood Park. I’m a bit biased because Sherwood Park is my home as well! Paula is sharing a few photos of her beautiful space that has evolved after several years of water damage in her basement! She writes: “I have attached ‘Where I Create’ photos, although this is only about 1/4 of my crafting supplies! [LOL] The rest are in a storage room. I LOVE my space because, from 2010 – 2017 I did not have an area that was inspiring. We had water in our basement. Until we could repair and re-do our basement, I had a…

Hello everyone, Kim here today with a mixed media blog share! In the summer issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, Connie Nichol, our frugal scrapbooker, has an article all about using vintage sewing patterns. This featured article shows lots of fun ways to incorporate patterns onto cards and layouts. I thought I would share how I used them in a project! I have done up a 2-page mixed media layout in my Prima Travelers Mixed Media Notebook. This fun  little notebook has various types of paper to work on; black & cream mixed media, kraft, cardstock and a heavy vellum. I have adhered some of the tissue paper pattern on the left side of my project and the packaging on the right side using Prima Soft Matte Gel. I choose to paint a thin layer of watered down Mint Impasto over the entire project to tone the red down and ‘push’…

Hello everyone, Nicole Wright here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog with a fun process video creating a Travellers Notebook featuring a variety of products by  Prima  Marketing. Travellers Notebooks are trending and I can see why.  These compact notebooks can be used for a variety of applications.  You can create a bullet journal, use them for writing, note-taking, sketching, mixed media, take them to crafty classes to name a few uses.  Using Eileen Hull’s Journal Scoreboard die is perfect to fit the inserts or add pages.  This journal just returned from Spain and I filled it with inspiration. Watch to see how I create this Travellers Notebook.  This quick video shows the techniques I use to create textures and layers with paints and mediums. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EO_C6OFBYI Here is a closer look at the details you can create with various Prima Marketing Finnabair products.  I really love the inside of…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here with a quick mixed media page share. Did you know our current issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine has a 13 page feature dedicated to mixed media! There are so many gorgeous art journal pages, scrapbooking layouts and cards ready to inspire you to pull out some products that might not be in your comfort zone. I encourage you to try, it’s so fun! Here is a recent art journal page I made using many of my favourite Ranger products. They are often my go to mixed media products because they overlap well with my love of scrapbooking and cardmaking! My page started out as gel print I had made a while back using my Ranger Gel Plate and Dylusions paints. I layered on some stencils and stamps, which were coloured with Chameleon Pens. I added some washi tape and stickles for some more texture and…
