Mixed Media ATC Space Journey

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts ATC Mixed Media Rocket Planet Universe Simon Says Stamp 1
Hello, my lovely crafty friends, I am so happy you are here. It's so great to have my craft time back since both my kids are going back to school today. At Simon Says Stamp, we also have a special challenge for children between the ages of 2 and 16! CLICK HERE or on the logo to go directly to the challenge page.


For today's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you to create an ATC - Artist Trading Card. The only rule for ATC is the size must be 2.5" X 3.5".

I was inspired to create a mixed media ATC with Simon Says Stamp Space Journey Wafer Die and textured background using Prima White Crackle Texture Paste.

This ATC was cut from a piece of watercolor paper. I love to use sturdy paper to create this kind of tiny piece. The background was covered with Prima texture paste then sprayed with Tim Holtz Distress Spray Paints.

I colored on another piece of watercolor paper using Distress Paints then die cut the space elements using Simon Says Stamp Space Journey Wafer Die. I drew the outline of these space elements using Faber-Castell Big Brush Pens, and pasted these die cuts on the ATC base using Tombow Mono Glue and Tombow Adhesive Tabs.

The sentiment was from Tim Holtz Chit Chat Stickers. I also distressed the edges of the ATC using Simon Says Stamp Ink pads and Art Daubers.

Mixed Media Wall Hanging Nautical

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Mini Canvas Nautical Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz
Hello, my lovely friends, I am so happy you are back. This week, our theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "NAUTICAL". I was inspired to create a mixed media wall hanging using Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain on the background and decorated it with my favorite sea creatures using Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp Mini Prints.

This wall hanging was made of four 3" X 3" mini canvases. I started this project with applying modeling paste on the canvases using a palette knife. Then I sprayed Distress Spray Stain on these canvases with random shades.

I stamped four sea creature blue prints on the watercolor paper that was already colored with Distress Spray Stain and water mixture. Then I stamped these sea creatures again to cut and pasted on the previous stamped blue prints using foam tabs to create dimensional effect.

The sentiments were added using Tim Holtz Big Chat stickers. The metal heart and tiny bottle were embellished on the canvases.

I distressed the edges of the canvases using blue and black Faber Castell Big Brush Pens. The final step was splattered some Gesso and water mixture on the canvas. 

I really enjoyed to create this wall hanging with these vibrant colors and the cute sea creature images. Hope you will join us and make your NAUTICAL project. I can't wait to see what you create!
