In this moment ~ Mixed Up Merchandise

Oh my goodness I just Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuurve these Mixed Up Printable sheets they are so versatile.
Here I have created a canvas using this beautiful little girl with her flowers. I have basically used gel medium to stick down torn pieces of mixed papers I have to create a collage and I have adhered my girl on highlighted her with a graphite pencil and a white gel pen to lift her up a little and added a little sentiment to finish

Let it Snow ~ Mixed Up Merchandise

Today I have a gorgeous canvas for you I was wandering around in The Range last week in the xmas decorations isle and I found bags of snow and snow balls for just £1.00 a bag and I just had to grab a couple of bags, as you do, lol. So when I got home I knew just what I was going to do as I really think that it looks great surrounding the girl and her dog on a wintry day. I used a 6x4 sheet of mount board for the canvas, texture paste through a snowflake mask, used pva to adhere the snowflakes and balls and added the gorgeous image on top. I also used packaging string for added interest.

Hope you like

Mixed Up Merchandise ~ NEW Design Team Post. Thank Your Lucky Stars

This post is very exciting for me as it’s my debut post as a Design Team Member for Mixed Up Merchandise, when Katy asked me to be a design member I squealed with delight lol

Hope you enjoy my first post and tutorial,
Have a happy weekend
Hugs Aly xx


I have created a canvas using one of the gorgeous printable sheets from their fabulous range…

You will find this and more when you click on the pic below…


You can also buy the their online Magazine HERE


I started scribbling with gelatos and washing it out with water then I sprinkled a pink brusho powder and sprayed that down from the top of the card. The card was a heavy mixed media card so that it can take a lot of things being done to it and not fall apart.


Then I chose a selection of stamps to stamp in the background I used London Fog as I didn’t want them to stand out too much just to be a nice low key background noise.


I then cut out my choice of pintables and a few bits to add to the mix and decorated my piece and mounted it onto a piece of heavy grey board to create a canvas.


Here is my final piece

Mixed Media with Lindy’s Magical Shakers….

A postcard/canvas I made today using Lindy's Magical Shakers -
I create a 6x4 background consisting of a clock stencil ran through with modelling paste and a number stencil done the same way.

I have then sprayed using Lindy's Oktoberfest Orange Magical Shaker and dried off. added a character and a suitable sentiment. I then added added clear glossy accents on the tail for effect.

A gorgeous stamp by Paperbabe, one of my all time favourite characters Alice in Wonderland.
