Kaisercraft Cherry Blossom fusion

Good Morning, Rikki here today with a bit of a fusion piece.I love mixed media and I often try to use up the end of a range by blending it together with some artistic, messy fun.

You should pop into the store to see the fabulous range of mixed media goodies perfect to get you started on some messy fun.

For the background I have used the Tim Holtz Distress Stain Mists, I love, love, love these for there vibrancy and how they interact with water. When you bring yours home why dont you grab a piece of white cardstock, add some water to the page then your mist and see what you can create. 

If they are too bright add some Prima Art Basic Heavy Gesso to the page first, this will make the mist more pastel.

Dont forget to keep your little strips that have the barcode, they will help ''fuse'' your mixed media background with your range of papers.

Another important thing to remember is to give your eye a rest, somewhere that is white and help give contrast to the background. A great way to do this is to use chipboard, like the Your Creative Wings Scribbles, and also with diecut shapes. 

The Tim Holtz Distress Stain mist has Picket Fence a perfect white, it allows minimal bleed through to keep it close to white over colours.

The next thing to do is add your Prima Art Basic Texture Paste through a stencil, its all about adding layers to your background.

Add some fussy flowers over and under your layers to complete the ''fusion'', also another tip, flick the Tim Holtz Distress Stains white over all your layout. This will tie the pattern papers to your background.
