Bunny In A Hat

Hello Dear Readers!
The cutest mixed media spring bunny landed on the blog today! :)
It's Athanasia who brought him to life with some pretty awesome media tricks and techniques. You'll see everything in her video tutorial and I'm sure feel inspired to have your own little mixed media creature. :)



Hello dear friends!
This is the second card I'm altering from a card set I got from Ikea a long time ago.
I had so much fun painting and decorating this cute bunny and I'm happy to share the whole process in a video with you.


I started with covering the background with Heavy White Gesso in order to mute it a little bit and used some Art Alchemy acrylic colors in shades that matched the card's colors: Fresh Orange, Royal Red, Steampunk Copper and Black Berry - you will find the product links below.
 

I also used all these beautiful colors to paint the chipboard pieces and all the metal embellishments...



I love doodling on my projects and this time I used a black permanent pen, as well as a white pen.


The several stamps I used created a really messy and interesting background and helped me create even more texture with a fun technique I did on Heavy White Gesso - you can watch all these tricks in the video below.


I hope you will enjoy my video and maybe get some ideas to create your own altered card!




Thank you for visiting,
have a lovely crafty weekend!
