"All Good Things" Mixed Media Home Decor for ScrapBerry's

Welcome to my creative space!

I've created a mixed media card holder featuring ScrapBerry's gorgeous Cherished Jewels Collection and beautiful paper flowers.

I'm always on the lookout for things to alter and found this oversize "clothespin" on clearance after Easter. Of course it had cute little bunnies with colorful eggs covering both sides. I've also seen large "clothespins" in the unfinished wood section of our local craft stores, so if you would like to create one of these card holders, you don't have to wait for the Easter clearance sale.

I took the metal spring out to separate the two wooden pieces and gave them each a couple coats of white gesso. I trimmed this wonderful teal paper from ScrapBerry's Cherished Jewels 6x6 Paper Collection to cover the front and back before adding the embellishments. This sweet clip can be used to hold up a variety of things from recipe cards to Scripture verses, or even encouraging quotations. It also makes a lovely decor piece without holding any cards at all. 

ScrapBerry's has gorgeous flowers including this Sky Blue Gardenia, Blue and White Cherry Blossoms, Pink and White Stemmed Lily, Turquoise Daisies, and tiny Pink Chrysanthemums. The flowers are lightly dry brushed with white gesso to soften the colors and to give a mixed media feel.

I've also tucked in a Floral Embroidery Crystal Sticker as well as a sweet Elegy Polymer Butterfly which I highlighted with Prima Vintage Gold Metallique Wax, I used molds with paper clay to create the feathers and leaf, which I painted and highlighted with several colors of Prima waxes as well. Microbeads and glitter shards are added to fill in around the edges.

I stamped a sentiment onto watercolor paper using StazOn Jet Black Ink and colored the background with Prima Water Soluble Oil Pastels then darkened the edges with coordinating Distress Ink colors.

The back is lovely too. Here you can see a little better how I applied molding paste with one of my new favorite stencils by Art Anthology over the patterned paper to add texture, then spritzed with a teal color mist.
