"Spread Your Wings and Fly" Mixed Media Card by Tracey Sabella

Hi Everyone!
It's Tracey here to share a card I created with the gorgeous Juliet paper collection.

This paper collection lends itself perfectly to combining a shabby chic style with touches of mixed media.

The focal point of this sweet card is fabulous ScrapBerry's Flowers. I lightly dry brushed them with white gesso to soften the color.

Several strips are cut from papers in the lovely Juliet collection with the tops and bottoms torn off to place under the flower cluster on the right side of the card for texture. The ScrapBerry's Butterflies Wings clear stamp set is used for the sentiment, "Spread your wings and fly," and I just couldn't resist tucking in a sweet white feather.

The text image from the same set is stamped randomly across the card. I die cut a doily from Juliet paper to tuck beneath the cluster. For visual texture, color mist is spattered across the background.

I simply adore ScrapBerry's polymer and resin pieces. This sweet rose is from the Colorful Dreams Set. I brushed the piece with white gesso, then spritzed with color mist, and dabbed lightly with brown Distress Ink. Don't you just adore how the color settled down into the crevices? I applied molding paste with two different stencils in layers diagonally across the card. I spritzed with color mist and water to highlight the texture. I also scattered a mix of gold microbeads and clear mini marbles.

Water based color mediums do not adhere well to polymer or resin. A quick coat of white gesso that has dried allows the color to cling to the piece.

I hope you've been inspired to pull out your
ScrapBerry's products and create something special.
