Joy Mixed Media Ornament

Hi Wow fans, this is Jenifer here with you today to share my mixed media project with you.  I am definitely in the Christmas mood so I ended up making an ornament.  Just wait till you see what I made this out of :)

I added a piece of patterned paper from DCWV on all sides of the box and then using an embossing ink pad I ran it down all the edges and then using opaque bright white embossing powder it made it look like a snowy glass window.  I love how it turned out, and I think I will be making a set to hang on the tree this year.

I stamped Joy using the "Deck the Halls" Stamp set in Metallic Platnum splarkle embossing glitter then cut our around the stamp and adhered it with some foam squares.  All the ribbons are from May Arts and the deer die is from Spellbinders.  Top the ribbon off with a Foliage Button and you are now good to go.
I used the box from a package of soap to make my ornament, I snapped a picture quick before I finished it up.  What could you recycle to turn into a masterpiece?  There is tons of stuff out there, don't be afraid to look.

Wow Supplies Used:
Deck the Halls Stampset
Metallic Platnum Sparkle Embossing Glitter
Opaque Bright White
Foliage Button Mould

Other Supplies used:
May Arts Ribbons
DCWV
Spellbinders Die

Thank you so much for looking at my project today, I hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

Mixed Media Art Doll: by Trish

Hello!
The theme for this month is my favourite thing, mixed media!
I've created my favourite thing, an Art Doll!
As well as plenty of paints and inks, there are rather a lot of WOW products in there too!
I stamped the body using the dots from the funky border strip set, and embossed them using white powder. The 3D heart is created using the heart mould, with clear and process blue powder. To get the swirly effect, add the blue powder on top of the clear powder, then just leave well alone until completely melted. Stir just once, then pour into the mould. The white inner core of the blue powder is not totally released that way, giving the variations in shade...
The 'love' word comes from the Express yourself stamp set. I stamped it onto tissue paper then added it to the body.
I added a strip of hearts to the base, from the Gratitude set..
 The crown has been triple embossed using primary apple red powder, with a layer of white powder as the second layer. The white breaks through the top layer of red, giving a fab effect....
I painted the crown with blue dots, then added it to the head, giving a nice 3D look..
The head is simply created from a driftwood disc, covered in text paper, then I created a face using paints and pencils.
Hope you like her!

WOW Products used:
Stamps: Express Yourself, Funky Border Strips, Gratitude
Powders: Clear, White, Process Blue, Primary Apple Red
Mould: Heart

Have a great week!

Mixed Media Project

Hi all

Hers's my Mixed Media project for WoW. Iv'e made a canvas for you today using WoW Embossing Powders and the Crackle Stamp.

To make this canvas I firstly covered it with white tissue paper and scrunched it up before it dried.

I then coloured the canvas with beige paint and grunged it up a bit with a black stamp pad. I then added clear embossing powder to the Cracked Leather stamp and embossed the whole thing with Sensational Sage powders.

Gold Embossing powder was also added in patches to add to the grunge look.

I embossed 3 leaves with Sensational Sage and Azure Mist powders, stick them onto a backing paper and added them to the canvas.

I then with gold powder, I  embossed some wording from the "Express yourself" stamp onto a label and added it to the stamped image of the NB Canvas stamp which I cut out.

The whole thing was finished off with 3 lines from the top of the canvas down to the leaves which I added in ribbon. .Finally a bow to complete the picture and a hanger made with twine.

A little bit of mixed media fun

Hello all.  I hope you have enjoyed the blog hop with Wow and Ruby Rock-It.  If you have not gone and had a look I highly recommend you do.  Today I have a layout to share with you using some mixed media technique.   I had so much lovely Ruby Rock-It product left over that I have used it in this layout.




For this project I have started by using a mask and a versamark pad.  Applied the versamark by pressing down into the mask.  This can be a bit tricky if you don't have a moist pad.  I then added a mixture of two embossing powders,  both light in colour as I did not want the background to over power the photo.  The colours I used in this project are special edition Dune and gobi.  I then heat set  the embossing powders.


You can see in this close up that the powders do not leave a complete colour, but leaves the shape that I had used from the mask.  If you would like to add another layer to the back ground.  Wow has some amazing colours available in foils.   Foils can be applied in many ways,  one of my favourite ways is to re-heat the embossed area and very quickly lay your foil over top and rub.  This leaves a distressed look rather than a full image foiled .



One of my all time favourite techniques to do with Wow embossing powders is to used it in moulds.  I have used a mixture of melt it powder,  black and copper in a melting pot to create my twigs.

WOW! organization

Hello all, Nataliya is here :)
Today I want to show you how I made a palette of my powders collection .
It's very simple! I marked all the covers in cans using this same powder :)


I took ink for embossing, make a print, sprinkle it with powdered and melted it.


Now I always know what color of powder in the can, how looks glitter, transparent color or not, and all the other properties of powder :)


My little army :)

Sparkle Every Day

Hi! It's Sandie here and today I am sharing my take on this month's theme, which is 
Mixed Media.
  
I have had this wooden wall plaque in my stash forever and decided it would be perfect to alter using some left over papers from the Ruby Rock-It/WOW! Embossing blog hop - if you haven't seen the hop, you can find it HEREYou still have a little bit of time to hop around for your chance to win an amazing prize :) 


I created the background using Gesso, modelling paste, stencils and spray inks. Once it was dry I started to layer up my elements. I  distressed the edges of the quote with Blue Glitz glitter powder and adhered it with 3D foam. 


For the flowers I used Foil Melt-It cases and combined some Melt-It powder with various embossing powders. To melt the powders together I heated from underneath using the WOW! Heat Tool. The moulds I used were - Daisy & Tea Rose



When I had all of my embellishments in place I finished by adding some Tim Holtz Chitchat word stickers.
