Mixed Up Media Chix BLOG HOP and Friends with Flair Friday

Happy Valentine's Day!


Today the Mixed Up Media Chix's are hopping!  It's been awhile since our last mixed media hop so we are back at it in 2014!  I invite you to come join us in our FB group to share your creations and get in on our hops!


Here is my Mixed Media piece I created on  canvas board measuring 6 x12.




I cut out the the hearts using the Stampin Up Framelits Hearts Collection dies using some SU pattern papers and some from DCWV.  On the small hearts I added Mod Podge Dimensional Magic for shine and dimension.  Then on the larger of the smaller hearts I sprinkled some Stickles Dry Fine Glitter before the Dimensional Magic dried:

Dimensional Magic and Glitter on the left heart and just the Dimensional Magic on the right heart

A view of the heart with just the Dimensional Magic

For my base/background I used various Dylusions Sprays by Ranger and various stencils.  Then added lots of stamps from Unity Stamp Co. - Friday is also Friends with Flair on the Unity Blog!
