Scrappy Angie's: Mixed Media Mini Series #3 [Perfect Pearls]

Hey.. Angeline here and I am back with Part #3 of my Mixed Media Mini Series. Have you been enjoying it so far?

To those who are here for the first time, what is Mixed Media? Well, it's simply - using more than one (mixed) medium on your project. Read all about an article I wrote on Mixed Media 101 here.


So here's a peek of what I am going to make today.

Surprised that it's not all messy and crazy? :) Well, mixed media doesn't have to be that way all the time. It can be neat and pretty too. 

Today, we will be focusing on Perfect Pearls from Ranger. There are many ways you can use these lovelies but today I will be showing how to create a background and some embellishments.

Let's get started!


1. To create your background, get perfect medium or any sticky ink. Here I am using Distress embossing Ink on black cardstock.

2. Get your favorite colors of Perfect Pearls out and a clean dry brush.

3. Start tapping the Perfect Pearls onto the sticky areas. Tap off the excess onto your craft sheet.

4. Once you are done, get a clean brush and do a pouncing motion and tap the colors in. Once you're done, you can brush off the excess gently. 

Tip: Finally, mist it lightly with some water to fix the Perfect Pearls. This will make it permanently fixed onto your project rather than getting brushed off over the time.

Here's a comparison of the Perfect Pearls on white and black cardstock. Yups. It will have a different effect. 
(My camera is not picking up how shiny it actually is)

5. Now, get your favorite stamps out and ink them with some Versamark. Then emboss it with some black embossing powder.

6.  Scoop some Perfect Pearls onto your craft sheet and start painting with your Tim Holtz waterbrush. 

Tip: The embossed areas will help keep the paint inside the lines

When you are done, fussy cut it and assemble! Here are the two cards I have created.
