Hello everyone, it´s my turn to share another mixed media tutorial over at the STAMPlorations blog today. It´s so good to be back after the summer break! Today I´d like to share my take on artist trading coins – here are the finished coins:
Now to the steps:
Step 1: Die cut 2,5 inch sized circles from kraft cardstock. Next take border stickers (from older stash) and adhere onto the circles – position as you prefer. Now take the “Barley” stencil and apply iridescent medium thru the stencil onto the circles. Let dry properly before moving over to the next step.
Step 2: Spray golden spray pink (preferedably with a little glimme in it for a nice shine) onto the circles and after the spray ink has dried, apply brown ink ont the stenciled areas with a foam. This way the stenciled pattern shows thru much better. Next fussy cut suitable paper pieces and adhere onto the coins with a paper glue. I used handmade paper with leaf patterns for this purpose.
Step 3: Now add a stemped sentiment. I used the “Woodland friends” stamp set for this purpose. Stamping onto a irregular surface using a stamping tool like Misti or similar, will help to create a perfect stamp image.
Step 4: Decorate with additional border sticker pieces, glitter glue dots, fussy cut pieces of old book pages and white gel pen. Add as many little details as you.
I hope you have enjoyed my take on Artist Trading Coins. See you with another tutorial next month! Until then, happy crafting!!!
