Go Confidently Masculine Mixed Media Card for Donna Salazar Designs

Hello again my sweet crafting friends. It's my turn to be up on the Donna Salazar Designs Blog today with a masculine mixed media card featuring her Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Pigment Powders and Girlie Grunge Art Medium.

Do you ever create a project, and it becomes one of your favorites. That's just how I feel about this card with these gorgeous colors and cool textures. 

Remember those epoxy stickers that fit into bottle caps? You know the ones that are so old that they've turned yellow with age. I was ready to throw some out the other day when I thought I'd see if I could alter them using Donna's Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products. I couldn't be happier with the way they turned out. Stop by Donna's blog for more photos and all the details HERE.

Trinket Box with VIDEO TUTORIAL ~ Scraps of Elegance May Kit

I adore having trinket boxes to stash away my scrapbooking supplies, so when I saw this Graphic45 ATC Book Box, the OTP Add On for the "Belle Journée" Kit - I knew it would be one of my projects with this gorgeous kit!

My favorite technique used on this project is the raised enameled design. The DecoArt Modeling Paste in the Main Kit is nice and wet, so when stenciled with the Victorian Sketchbook Stencil. the embossing powder clings to it nicely for complete coverage. It looks so gorgeous when heat set.

I hope you enjoy this step by step process video:

Melinda is the master of putting together gorgeous kits, and this "Belle Journée" May Kit has been such a delight to work with. 

If you are a regular follower, you know that I adore experimenting and using things in unusual ways, so I had fun playing with the Epiphany Crafts Hex Bubble Caps included in the Elements Add On. I've transformed this normally trendy product into a grungy, shabby element for my cards. Check out my process video tutorial below to see how I've created these cards including the altered Hex Caps.
