Hi there Joggles fans! Lisa here today, and I’m excited to share my Mixed Media Tutorial with you! I enjoyed creating this framed art piece using Joggles Stamps, Stencils, Sticky Snippets along with Dylusions Paints/Sprays and the Gel Press Plate.
If you look closely as this week’s tutorial, you’ll notice my naked nails this week, lol! After the past few Mixed Media Tutorials, I opted for no nail polish this week, as the paints/stains and Gesso were taking a toll on my hands!
I also want to mention that because I’m working with Ink Sprays this week, you’ll not only want to fully cover your work station, but you might also want to wear an apron or old clothes (ask me how I know, lol)! And because I tend to use my fingers a lot rather than a brush, you might opt for gloves, as my hands get inky!
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad – Gathered Twigs
Joggles Clear Acrylic Stamp Mounts – to fit your images
Other Supplies: Heat Tool, baby wipes, Gel Medium such as Dina Wakley Media Gel Medium, foam brush or cosmetic sponges, Black Pigment Pen.
Here is my process:
Working on a NonStick Craft Sheet, apply Gesso to two pieces of Mixed Media Paper. Let dry.
Place Gel Press Plate onto work surface and spritz with Bubblegum Pink, London Blue, and Pure Sunshine Dylusions Ink Sprays.
Place Mixed Media Paper onto the spritzed Gel Press Plate and press down. Lift straight up to pull the print and set it on your work station.
Place the Joggles Flowerburst Stencil over the inked Mixed Media Paper and blot with paper towel. If you want to remove more color from the stencil openings, use a Baby Wipe or wet paper towel. Remove and clean stencil.
Let panel fully dry before proceeding.
***Optional, while stencil is still wet, press it onto extra pieces of Mixed Media paper and save prints for future use.
Place stencil over pulled print. Ink Joggles/Margaret Applin Designs Vintage Correspondence Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp with Jet Black Archival Ink and stamp over stencil through the openings. Repeat as desired.
Let dry and clean stencil.
Using Jet Black Archival Ink, stamp Joggles/ Margaret Applin Designs Grunge Spots Border Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp onto Deli Paper several times.
Rip pieces of the Deli Paper and apply to background panel using Gel Medium. Let dry.
Using Jet Black Archival Ink, stamp Joggles/ Virginia England Rhonda and Ralph Cling Mounted Rubber Stamps onto the second piece of Mixed Media Paper which you had covered with Gesso. Let dry.
Place a little of each of the Dylusions Paints onto the Gel Press Plate (I used it like a paint palette) or your NonStick Craft Sheet. Use the Water brush to pick up paint and color in the stamped images. Let dry. Clean brush and Gel Press Plate.
Place Joggles Punchinella Trio 2 stencil over the colored images, and, using your finger, dab Dylusions White Linen Paint through some of the stencil openings to add interest to stamped images.
Let panel dry and clean stencil. Once completely dry, cut out images and sponge edges using a Rangers Inkssentials Mini Ink Blending Tool and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Set aside.
Stamp Dylusions sentiment in Jet Black Archival Ink onto Deli paper and cut out.
Place Joggles Punchinella Trio 2 stencil over background panel and apply Dylusions London Blue paint over stencil openings using your fingers. Repeat as desired. Let dry and clean stencil.
Adhere stamped images and sentiment to panel using Gel Medium. To make the images/sentiment pop, outline using Black Pigment Liner Pen.
