Mixed Medium: Beautiful with Shari Carroll

Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll

Welcome to the blog everyone and Happy Tuesday! As we get closer to the holidays I think more about creating gifts for loved ones and this project is perfect for a that. I think a personalized gift is so heartwarming.

I’m so lucky that Melodys mom is such a great photographer and I get to play with the her photos. To start this project, I had the photo printed in black and white so I can add all my color using flowers, embellishments and paint.

The 6.5″ x 9″ Tim Holtz Framed Panel is the perfect size for a 4″x6″ photo. I used strips of Zella Teal paper from Prima around the picture to frame it out and to make the surface even.

Once everything was glued in place, I added streaks of paint by using my finger and wiped away portions of it with a baby wipe.

I added stickers and chipboards with meaningful word stickers to frame the photo.

And to finish my design, I added Zella Teal flowers and highlights of silver foil.

  1. The flowers are gorgeous; love the teal color. And I really love the B&W photo. We just came across a lot of B&W photos of my parents when they were first married … I’d love to make something like this honoring them.

  2. What a beautiful project and a darling little girl! I love how this turned out and the colors are fabulous too! Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful art!!!

  3. Such a beautiful photo and project…I am inspired to go through my photos of the boys now! Love the color palette as well. 🙂

  4. Beautiful collage. I love watching your creative process. One of these days I’m going to dive in.
    Question-the glue stick you used, does that work for most foiling processes. It is such a cool wat to add that little bit of glimmer.
    Thanks for sharing, your videos are awesome.
