Sooooo! If you've never seen or heard of the Mixed Media Inspiration Deck's before, they are a 52 piece inspiration card deck that can be used for your mixed media creative pursuits.

These are the set I was lucky to get to create with, and I chose the inspiration card Journal with a permanent pen or marker.


I had so much fun embellishing a canvas pencil case using the 'Large Bubbles' Stencil designed by Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch.




...and here are some close ups; especially of the journaling [speech bubbles], that I created using a black Signo gel pen.



The next 2 images are collages of step-out photos; just to give you an idea of how I created the image on the pencil case.


I used my fave 'go-to' Posca paint pens to draw and colour in my ladies.


Well that is it from me please hop to the next fabulous team member for today; Torrie :) :) :)

But WAIT!!!! Before you go....

Awesome project. Did you put gesso on the canvas before you started painting? And I need to get some of those paint markers:)Thanks for sharing:)

Denise Spillane said...

Wow I love your pencil case so great. I hope I win so I can try this. I wanted to order the cards right away but couldn’t get Pp to work. I guess the message was patience.
