Mixer Magic

My project this week is literally covered with the brand new Terri Sproul's Mixer's...beautiful mica powders that can be mixed with Crystal Lacquer for some pretty amazing results. I wanted to try it on several different surfaces to see what effects I could obtain....and what I got was really beautiful!
I started with these simple supplies:
light pink crepe paper rosette
a plain white paper flower
white plastic mini frame
a valentine cut out
a tim holtz rosette made with vintage sheet music
and I added the magic:
Terri Sproul's Mixer's in the following colors -
Red Satin
Gold Dust
Here's a close-up of the pink crepe paper rosette with a layer of Bronze mica powder mixed with 3D Crystal Lacquer brushed on the top. I dipped the edge in Crystal Lacquer then dipped in Gold Dust mica.
I painted Red Satin mica powder mixed with Crystal Lacquer on a white paper flower, let it dry thoroughly, then stamped it with a handwriting rubberstamp using black StazOn ink. The little frame was white, and is coated with Silver mica powder mixed with Crystal Lacquer. I cut the word LOVE out and distressed it a little before gluing it to the backside of the frame. The little Valentine image was distressed on the edges, coated with Distress Crackle and then brushed with a small amount of the Silver mica powder. I layered a vintage music rosette, the Valentine image, then topped it with the frame and flower.
I'll be attending CHA this coming weekend and can't wait to visit the Sakura Craft Booth 844!  I'll be sharing with you all the good stuff I see next time! 
Till then.....stay creative
