Freedom Mixed Media Vintage Canvas- Scraberry's

Hi Everyone,
Its Keren Here with a Mixed Media Canvas video tutorial for Scrapberry's.
I've used several different Scrapberry's products and combined them with Mixed Media products to create this unique vintage canvas.

Here is the video on how I created this project:

I really love the vintage feel of this project.
I used Scrapberry's polymer resins, metal embellishments, pearls and pigment inks for this project.

I love the crackle glaze from Deco Art. It came in my October Flying Unicorn Mixed Passion Kit and it gives the perfect clear crackle.

Inspirational ATC's- 7 Dots Studios & Flying Unicorn Small Art Big Passion October Kit

This month's Flying Unicorn Kit features the beautiful 7 Dots Studio Lost and Found collection.
I created these ATC set using the 6x6 Pad from this collection that comes in the Small Art Big Passion Kit.
This project is also my feature for the 7 Dots Studio Blog.

Lately I'm in an ATC craze mode. I just love creating them and exchanging them with my friends from around the world.

 I find the 7 Dots Studio collections to be perfect for creating ATC's. The 6x6 papers are perfect as each paper yields 3 ATC's. So each collection pad can create several ATC's at once. For these ATC's I only used 2 papers out of the pad and I still had left over pieces to embellish over the cards.

The 7 Dots Studios tags, word stickers and elements are perfect for adding those special touches to embellish the cards. You can see the small elements I added on the ATC's and I used the word stickers as sentiments.

For the mixed media texture of the cards I used the 13 Arts tattered grid stencil from a previous Flying Unicorn Kit. Then I combined Finnabair's Light paste with Green Mica (from the October Kit) to use as the medium over the stencil.
Once I finished stencilling, I used the leftover paste to create some more texture on the cards.

I used some 13 Arts sprays to create some splatters on the background: Chalk black, Chalk Celadon and Chalk yellow.

The resin heart is from Petaloo and it comes in the Flying Unicorn Small Art big passion October kit.

To participate in this month's challenge you have to use a piece of the quote board below.
I used the quote "You are the horizon to my sky"
Sky being part of one of the Antique Shop Scrapberry's Papers.

I used another one of the Scrapberry's Antique Shop papers for the background. Then used white gesso to create lines and circles around the page.

Then I framed the photo with a chipboard circle and embellished with Prima flowers and Scrapberry's polymer embellishments.
