Splitcoast Tutorial: Mixed Media Smooshing

This week's tutorial over on Splitcoast is a fun update to the old favorite Smooshing technique - our author's adding in a variety of different mediums and mixatives with beautiful results!

This truck set has been such a popular one at Spellbinders that they've designed an add-on set with more sentiments for the tailgate - there are so many fun occasions this truck can be used for now!

These are the mediums I used for my background panel - the Inka Gold is starting to dry out, but it is water soluble - I cut out a small piece and crumbled it onto my craft sheet, then misted with water, sprinkled the Brusho, and used a palette knife to mix the two mediums together.

Here's a closer look at the truck - the surfboard and beach ball are brushed with dye inks.

My second truck is cut from a print I did on my gel plate using pigment inks - I sponged a little Stazon Pigment ink on the truck for detail, and dabbed a little almost-dry acrylic paint on the tailgate to highlight the word.

 For the background, I sprayed my craft sheet with this dye mist, and then added in a few drops of Ken Oliver's Liquid Metals in copper - such a pretty sheen.

Here's a look at the full truck set, which has accessories for every occasion:

 And here is the new add-on set - I love that these can be used on tags or other cards, and aren't limited to the tailgate! So much fun. That scalloped rectangle is very cute too.

So Many Sentiments Etched Die Set

 That's all I know! Have a great week!
