Mixed Media+Cards with Spellbinders


Hello everyone! This is Mayline and I am honoured to be guest designer for Spellbinders! Today I have three projects to share with you using the Jane Davenport NEW Artomology collection. As always, this collection is incredibly beautiful and amazing, so I truly enjoyed to make all projects.

Here is my first project.

Spellbinders-Mayline-Ocean Dreams-01It’s an 8.5×11 sized mixed media. It was a challenge for me to combine some various images, and use a different kind of colouring tools in the large area. So, it would be more of a process than my usual card designs but, I did it and it was worth it! And it turned out beautifully.


Spellbinders-Mayline-Ocean Dreams-02To start off, I used a Glimmer Hot Foil System with Charisma Glimmer Hot Foil Plate, Rose Gold foil roll, and 300g black card stock. Before I used the machines I read and watched other reviews and some of them were suggesting to add few cardstocks to make a solid image result. The face on the left, I added many papers so it comes out like this. Hahaha… I tried it again (of course less pressure) and it comes out beautifully. Also, I tried not to add paper and it comes out the same as the second-time result. It was a fun experiment for me. First try makes it difficult to get a perfect outcome however, once I learn how to use it properly and then the outcome turned out nicely as always. 


Spellbinders-Mayline-Ocean Dreams-03Next, I die cut Marcia Makeover Etched Dies to get the Marcia’s outline pieces with white cardstock. And then I remove face shape and leave hair part as the photo shown above. I glued it on the black panel. After that, I made a watercolored background panel using blue, green, purple colours and cut the panel with the same die “Marcia Makeover Etched”. I set aside an outlined-piece (I used it my third project) and used solid pieces to insert the white outlined hair area.


Spellbinders-Mayline-Ocean Dreams-04Spellbinders-Mayline-Ocean Dreams-05To make all foils’ image, I used Mermaids Forever Glimmer Plate (six rows of solid waves), Show Ponies Glimmer Plate (seahorses), Le Mystere Glimmer Plate (mask) with Rose Gold, Glimmer Hot Foil Roll Champagne and Glimmer Hot Foil Roll Polished Brass foil roll. While making these images, no make fails and no waste of paper and foils.

Before I placed all pieces I prepared 8.5 x 11 sized black cardstock to make a background panel. I applied a Washi Mermaids sheet on the panel. And then I felt like I wanted to add something more, so I added tentacles die-cut pieces using Tentalicious Etched Dies and coloured them with watercolour paints. After that, I placed all of the foil’s images on the panel.

To finish the project I draw bubbles using white pen and applied silver colour splashing on the panel to give more bubble effect like an under the water/ocean.

Here is my last project. It is also mixed media. 

Spellbinders-Mayline-Color Dreams-01

As I mentioned earlier, I used leftover outlined pieces for the last project. I cut some white cardstocks four times with the same die “Marcia Makeover Etched”. I overlapped these white cardstock using glue and then I adhered the Marcia’s outlined shape to the solid panel.

Next, I made two watercolored panels using red, orange, yellow, green paints to get flowers, berries and large/small leaves die-cut pieces using Mums the Word Etched Dies. And I prepared 8.5 x 11 sized white cardstock for the journal panel.

After that, I stamped images from Colour is Happiness Clear Stamp (girl’s face & sentence), Life Sparkle Clear Stamp (stars), Free Spirit Clear Stamp (woman) using Squid ink Cave black ink on the panel.

Next, I placed all the die-cut pieces on the panel with glue. After that, I added water splashing using gold, green, red colour.  And then I wanted to add something else. I wasn’t’ sure what I wanted to add. I thought “adding some stamp images?” But when I look through the Marcia Makeover Etched die I noted that there is a scarf shape die-cut! So, I cut and coloured it, and adhered to her neck. And it looks perfect!
