Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll: Love

Mixed Medium with Shari Carroll

I was feeling the need to create a girly mixed medium project… one that represents the love of Sisters… Aunts, Mothers and even Grandmothers. I’ve had this idea swirling in my head to put a frame on a canvas. The smallest Wooden Tray from the Prima set was the perfect size!

I chose the Love Clippings papers and flowers to start my color scheme. Then added in some of my favorite things like book text and embossing paste through a stencil.  I used this Bo Bunny Laser Cut Butterfly, leaving it natural on top of the small frame.


I painted the wood letters with Worn Lipstick Distress Paint, then added a bit of Nuvo Copper Mousse to tone down the pink.

One of the finishing touches was to splatter on some Metallique Gold Rush Acrylic paint that was diluted with water then tapped off using a paint brush.

  2. Wonderful work! I love your mixed media projects and enjoy the video’s so much. I always pick up some good tips and am inspired by them. Thank you so much!

  3. This is such a great idea. I have a wonderful old photo of my husband’s Mother at age seven that reminds me of this picture of a found relative. I need to photo copy and create one of these for my son and one for my daughter of their grandmother! What a treasure to give them! Thanks!

  4. OMG, Shari …. utterly GORGEOUS! what talent you have. Love the addition of the pearls – so fun to watch you create. :)

  5. So very pretty! Love the awesome B&W photo, framed in B&W stripes. And then all the pretty details. *sigh*
    Love this beauty!

  6. Has a bee-utiful vintage look to it. Enjoyed Kurios Cirque du Solei show yesterday in Grand Prairie, TX that has a Steampunk theme. I won the 2 tickets from a radio station KLUV 98.7. I’m going to scrapbook the tickets using Tim Holtz Steampunk things.
