Mixed Media Collages

Hi there! I just wanted to share a bunch of mixed media paintings I did over the last week. I watched an art class from Laura Horn and was super inspired to start my own little series of collages. I used hand painted collage papers together with some stamped images. I used acrylic paint for stamping instead of stamping ink. Click on more to see why…

Vintage Art Journal Page with Collage Background

I made a vintage art journal spread with a collage on the background. I worked in the Kunst & Papier watercolor journal. The papers are handmade and also from a design paper pad. The one with the flowers in an old book page I painted myself with watercolors. As a focal image I added one of the Grungy Butterflies stamps. Click on more to watch a quick video.

Altered Playing Cards with Tissue Collage

I made some mixed media altered playing cards with a collage background. I inked some tissue with Brusho powders. After the tissue was dry I used it for this background. You will find a quick video on how I made this when you click more. The leaves are from my Sketchy Leaves stamp set, the mushrooms are from Textured Mushrooms.

Autumnal ATCs with stamped Collage Fodder (Process Video)

I’m sharing a new process video to inspire you over on my YouTube channel today.

I’m making some autumn leaves using our „I Love Leaves“ and „Twiggy Leaves“ stamp sets together with water-soluble pencils. This creates a super lovely watercolor effect.
