Mixed Up Merchandise ~ NEW Design Team Post. Thank Your Lucky Stars

This post is very exciting for me as it’s my debut post as a Design Team Member for Mixed Up Merchandise, when Katy asked me to be a design member I squealed with delight lol

Hope you enjoy my first post and tutorial,
Have a happy weekend
Hugs Aly xx


I have created a canvas using one of the gorgeous printable sheets from their fabulous range…

You will find this and more when you click on the pic below…


You can also buy the their online Magazine HERE


I started scribbling with gelatos and washing it out with water then I sprinkled a pink brusho powder and sprayed that down from the top of the card. The card was a heavy mixed media card so that it can take a lot of things being done to it and not fall apart.


Then I chose a selection of stamps to stamp in the background I used London Fog as I didn’t want them to stand out too much just to be a nice low key background noise.


I then cut out my choice of pintables and a few bits to add to the mix and decorated my piece and mounted it onto a piece of heavy grey board to create a canvas.


Here is my final piece

Mixed Media with Lindy’s Magical Shakers….

A postcard/canvas I made today using Lindy's Magical Shakers -
I create a 6x4 background consisting of a clock stencil ran through with modelling paste and a number stencil done the same way.

I have then sprayed using Lindy's Oktoberfest Orange Magical Shaker and dried off. added a character and a suitable sentiment. I then added added clear glossy accents on the tail for effect.

I found myself in Wonderland ~Paperbabe Stamps.

A gorgeous stamp by Paperbabe, one of my all time favourite characters Alice in Wonderland. I have created the background using a stencil and spray mist then added decoration with paint using a lid from a spray bottle and an old gift card. I have coloured in the gorgeous stamp and added her to the tag with a matching sentiment.

Hope you like
