Hello Funkie Junkie fans! Our theme this time is "Mixed Media Madness" and I gave my project a Halloween twist with childhood memories.
There is a photo of little four year old me dressed up as a witch! My mom would always sew the best costumes for my brother and I so I wanted to pay homage to those memories (and my Mom's crafty skills!)
Step 1 – I started by decoupaging pieces of old sewing pattern tissue onto a blank canvas.
Step 2 – I added some Distress Black Opaque Texture Paste through the new Spellbound Layering Stencil. When it was dry, I spritzed it with Distress Mica Spray.
Because I had decoupaged the pattern pieces onto the canvas, it was basically "sealed". The Mica Stains work best on porous surfaces so I had to spray it all with a coat of workable fixative to keep the stain from rubbing off. The fixative worked great!
Step 3 – I scanned the front of a vintage sewing pattern package from my collection. After printing it out, I assembled bits of Tim Holtz Halloween fabric and stitched them together
Step 4 – More layers! I added some more Texure Paste and Mica Spray over the pattern layer.
Thanks for stopping by. Keep an eye on the Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, Inspiration Ave. because you are now getting regular doses of expanded (and inspiring) content each week. Don't miss it…
