Mixed Media Monday - Mystic Assemblage Piece with Dana

Hi PWP fans! Dana here today sharing a fun assemblage piece I created with the July Nesting Components Mixed Media Kit. If you love the sand, sun and surf, you're going to want to pick up this kit! I feel home when I'm on the beach, and that was my inspiration for my project.

My favorite items in this kit are the metallic accents from the Pink Paislee Luxe Circles and Rub-Ons and the Lindy's Stamp Gang Madonna Robe Blue Gold Two-Toned Embossing Powder.

Like all Nesting Components Mixed Media Kits, a fabulous Paper Wings Products Stamp Set is part of the kit! The Seaside Cling Stamp Set is beach themed and features a gorgeous script quote. I used a portion of that stamp on my piece.

I created my own embellishments with glass beads and images from the clip art sheet. I built up layers of circle elements with the Pink Paislee Luxe Circles and gold circle rub-ons from the Pink Pailsee Luxe Rub-On Set. I also used the Studio Calico Huey's Circles Mask and Prima Glitter Gems from previous kits.

I mixed up my own mist using a Gelato and the Misting Bottle from the Faber-Castell Essential Tool Kit from the kit.

One of my favorite features of the PWP Kits is how well they all work together. I started this project with a piece of cardboard packaging and leftover supplies from my April, May and June Mixed Media Kits.

I was thrilled to find a Faber-Castell Essential Tool Kit in the July Kit! These tools came in handy for this project in a big way! I primed my cardboard with a light coat of Gesso, which I had leftover from the April Kit. I then added circles using the Mr. Huey's Mask and some cloud rub-ons, leftovers from the April Kit, and a piece of torn patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Hope Chest collection, from the June Kit, for a pop of color.

I used the foam wedge from the tool kit to apply VersaMark ink to random places around the edge of the cardboard and then sprinkled the Lindy's Embossing Powder from the kit over the ink. Applying heat to the powder reveals the fantastic two-toned finish! To create the mist, I cut a small portion from the Gelato and used a palette knife to blend the Gelato with warm water until I had a smooth mixture, which I then transferred to the misting bottle from the tool kit.

I used the Background Writings Cling Stamp Set and the Memento ink from the June Kit to add script to several areas on my background.

I added color to the canvas bird from the May Kit with a Gelato and the water brush from the tool kit. Once that was dry I added a layer of Stickles, which was leftover from the April Kit. I created some fun embellishments with clip art images and glass beads. I simply applied a small amount of Glossy Accents over the clip art images, pressed the glass beads over the images, and once dry, trimmed the excess paper from each bead.

My favorite part of every project is adding the embellishments and finishing touches! Everything shown to the left of my cardboard piece are items from the July Kit. Supplies from past kits and my personal stash are to the right of my cardboard piece. I added supplies from both piles to finish my piece.
