Ten + Mixed Media Backgrounds

Hi Friends

This is my entry for the Create Something Catchy Challenges ............


and this too....................


Create Something Catchy have a very interesting theme this week , the challenge hosted by Pallavi Iyer

Here's the Challenge Theme - Create your own background.It could be on a card,layout or an altered project.No pattern paper allowed.Use tools like stamps,handmade or commercial stencils,paints ,watercolours,texture pastes,embossing or anything else that strikes your fancy and show us your creative experiments.

Here are few of my trials, I did quite a few backgrounds but was not able to finish all of them,  I do hope you'll like them....

This is done on the broken screen protector of my iphone, painted black, a coat of crackle medium and white acrylic paint on top, I plan to use this on one of my projects as a layer or mat or as a fridge magnet, who knows ............


gold spray paint,dry wall tape and homemade texture paste thru a  stencil on watercolor paper...........

Water colors and white paint pen.........................


Watercolors and white paint pen byCamlin..........only one color(Cobalt Blue) is used diluted to different strengths, layers can be built painting repeatedly after each layer dries...


Watercolours and Doodling with Camlin Paint marker in white .............


Camlin Photo Colors and handmade stencil with texture paste on watercolour paper............


Dry Embossing using a Tim Holtz STENCIL+ Distress Ink Walnut Stain ......and texture paste thru' Crafters Workshop Fancy Feathers stencil.............

Camlin Inks+ Crackle paste + stenciling.........................


Various Inks and the Doodle with a Uniball White Pen + a bit of glitter............


A tag with various Pearl colors applied randomly, a bit of dry glitter, another tag pressed on it and pulled apart..........it of course gives you a twin too..........amazing raised texture with the minimum effort .........


This one is a doodle on white card stock with the white Paint pen, then rubbed with Faber-Castell Gelatos and misted and wiped with a wet wipe....the paint pens have acrylic color in them and won't take color.....I love the subdued pattern here.............



 Camlin Photo inks dropped on wet watercolor paper..........


The Kraft tag has a Gelli Print background made with acrylic colors and home made texture tools, the sentiment is a sticker, the flower cluster is a Rub-on+ white shadows with Uniball white, I punched some holes on top as I wanted some weaving kind of effect but later cut that portion .........


Watercolors.....layers built with different concentrations of color and a blue paint pen, free images printed on tissue paper and added with Gel medium , white dots are with white paint pen, tiny flowers punched out of cardstock, feather is stenciled and fussy cut on drying , edges colored with black acrylic to add depth and shadow...........

 and now the ones I was able to finish..............

Fridge Magnet...on MDF base, Acrylic Color+ Crackle medium and decoupage Tissue, edges colored with Walnut Stain DI.



watercolor bookmarks with handwritten sentiments............simple backgrounds...need a twine on top....



This is the one with Camlin Photo colors background.......stamping with Prima Texture stamps and Black archival ink, some layering,a cute birdie stamped, colored with water colors and fussy cut, sentiment+ handmade flowers and white splatters...........



This is matted on bright Pink cardstock.......the following pictures were taken in very bad light...the true colors are in the pictures above............

The tag is finished with a wooden butterfly and a pearl and ribbon flower embellishment .....
