Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll: Believe
Welcome everyone, it’s Shari here with a mixed medium project. I’ve pulled out all the stops on this one and I enjoyed the process so much!
I’m inspired to start some Christmas decorating and wanted to make a memorable piece. I started off with two sizes of
Tim Holtz Vignette Boxes stacked on top of each other.
I’ve colored the
Woodland Trees with Evergreen Bough Distress Spray. Then adorned one of them with Coral colored Beaded Berries, Silver Metallic Thread, and a star on top!
I added tissue paper to the back of the
Cathedral Thickboard and created a pouch from a storage sleeve to hold the Tim Holtz Tiny Lights in place behind.
Tim Holtz Grit Paste makes the perfect snow, I applied it to the trees with a palette knife then sprinkled Rock Candy Distress Glitter to add some sparkle.
I collaged some book text onto some heavy cardstock and once it was dry, I die cut the
Reindeer. I added a twine bow with a couple Jingle bells to finish it off.
Brushed Pewter Distress paint was used to paint the Christmas Typography Findings the were glued in place on the base. I filled in areas with Baubles Findings to help transition the boxes.
I created a snowman by stacking up two
Tim Holtz Wood slices and finished off the entire project with some Tim Holtz Mica Flakes which was a game-changer for a beautiful snowy effect.
I filmed the entire process and have compiled snippets of each step and technique for you. Enjoy!
