Mixed Media Tag Flower Power

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Mixed Media Tag Flower Power Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz Prima Flowers
Hello, my lovely crafty friends, I am so glad that you are back. This week, at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our challenge theme is "FLOWER POWER". I can't wait to see what you create. I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Prima Marketing Rose Flowers and decorated with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Quote Token.

On this size 8 tag, I first applied some different shades of acrylic paint then a layer of the crackle paint when the acrylic paints were dry. The edges of the tag were distressed using the Simon Says Stamp Ink pad and a blender. I also outlined the edges of the tag using a black pen. The metal embellishments were colored with the acrylic paints and attached on the tag using foam tabs.

I attached the cheese cloth with die cut leaves then layered with Prima Flowers and stamped sentiment using Tomboy Mono Glue.

As the final touch, I splattered some Gesso and water mixture, and acrylic paints randomly on the tag. 

I always love spring season and enjoy creating with flower/ nature challenge theme. I hope this tag inspired you to use these awesome products and create with us this week. Happy crafting!

Art Journal Simon Wild Inspired Doodle

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Simon Wild Inspired Doodle Simon Says Stamp Challenge

Hello, my talented crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge. This week, our theme at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is "LET"S DOODLE". I've always loved doodling and for this week's challenge, I was inspired by artist Simon Wild's artworks and doodled on my  art journal using Prismacolor Colerase Colored Pencils and colored using Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors.

The art journal I've worked on was bound with 24 pages of 9" X 12" watercolor paper. I really enjoy binding my own art journals and sketchbooks with binding tools and wires. On this page, I first applied some random watercolors using Daniel Smith watercolors and a brush. To add more patterns on the background, I sprayed Ranger Dylusions Inks over Tim Holtz Layering Stencil.

I started doodling with Prismacolor Colerase Colored Pencils on the page, coloring the doodled images with watercolors, then drew the outlines and more doodling with black ink pens. The page was randomly stamped with text prints using Prima stamp and Simon Says black ink pad.

I applied some Tim Holtz Rubs-on on the page. To add more texture, I brushed the Ranger crackle paint over the images I drew. 

This is such a fun page I've really enjoyed creating with these vibrant colors and lines. I hope you are inspired to doodle with us and join our challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
