Mixed Media Art Journal- Tree of Strength

Hi Everyone…….Hema here with you all today…!!

Today I’m sharing an art journal which I created with Little Birdie’s recently launched thin cut dies.  I wanted to share this tutorial just to show you that even with minimal products you can create a project with an essence of mixed media.  So without much ado….I will run you through the process here……

Step1: To begin, I  added textures to the journal page with Little Birdie Mixed Media Paste, using it as gesso and Grainy Texture Paste through stencils.

Step2: I used two Color Splash sprays – Tangerine and Gold Rush and also used a misty spray to run the colors along.

Step3: Then, I took a big strip of gauge and dry brushed it with distress inks.  I also cut few leaves and butterflies using shapes from the newly released thin cut die sets – Tropical Leaves and Butterfly Medley ….distressed them as well.


Step4: I have adhered the die cut leaves, gauge, dry grass and now applied embossing paste and sand stones to the composition……

Step5: I used a clear stamp and stamped randomly on the page for extra texture highlights…

Step6: Added layers …stamping and highlighted textures.

Few close ups…

Supplies used:





Hope you guys liked this little work share with minimal supplies…..!!

Will join you all again….!!

Happy Crafting!!
