X-Press It Mixed Media Squares

 

Mixed media is an ever growing trend, there is no right or wrong & it's all about experimenting with different products & medium. In this project we have created a mixed media tile using some of our favorite Copic & X-Press It products in ways you wouldn't normally expect. 

 

Materials:

X-Press It Mixed Media Squares (White)

Copic Various Ink

X-Press It adhesive Sheet

Memento Ink Pad

Copic Multiliner

Kirarina Pen

Tissue paper

Glitter

X-Press It blending card  


 Step 1:
  
 Mix Copic Colourless Blender with Copic various Ink ( 1 part Ink to 7 parts Colourless Blender)
 in fine mist spray bottle & spray layers of ink onto your X-Press It Mixed Media Square. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Step 2:
  
Add a piece of X-Press It Adhesive Sheet (this is a good chance to use your off-cuts.) Peel off one side of the liner and position on your square. Trim to the size of your card, then peel the second liner off. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
   
 Step 3:

Crumple up pieces of the tissue paper (another chance to use your scraps & off-cuts) & place on adhesive sheet leaving a few a few gaps of adhesive without paper; fill in these gaps with a small amount of glitter.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Step 4:
 
Using a lid (or any round object) & Memento Ink Pad, stamp circles over selected area. Next -using your Copic Multiliner fill in the circles with simple patterns. For a pop of contrast use your favorite Kirarina pens to add some more patterns. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Step 5:
 
Finish your project off with a hand-made sentiment. To make this, simply print your favorite quote onto X-Press It Blending Card. Add an adhesive sheet to the back and cut into strips. This is an easy way to make your own stickers and sentiments. 
 
 
Optional:
 
You could also finish your project off with a coat of X-Press It Clear Gel Glue or X-Press It Triple Tac, like we have in the photo at the begining of this post. This gives a nice finish and brings everything to life.
