Mixed Media With Terri Sproul Mixers

Hi my name is Peggy Oliver, I am new to the Sakura Hobby Craft
Design Team and I am excited to share with you my first project.
This is my first time using these wonderful products
and I have to say it couldn't be any easier!
For the entire Month of March
Terri Sproul Mixer Shimmer Mica Color Sets are on Sale 20% off .
Just use the code "Shimmer03"
at checkout!
A list of items I used today are,
StazOn Jet Black
Acetate (packaging)
3D Crystal Lacquer
 Terri Sproul's Shimmer Mica Color Set
-Smokey Quartz
-Pink Sapphire
 The first thing I did with my mixers is paint a
butterfly to put on top of each pot.
Today I chose to make a focal image for my mixed media piece.
I Started with a piece of Acetate and Stamped a Blue Bird
on it with Black StazOn Ink to ensure it wouldn't smudge.
Next I mixed up some of Terri Sproul's Shimmer Mixer
Tanzanite with 3D Crystal Lacquer I and used the
 Applicator Pen Set to assist me in painting

In the another applicator I mixed 3D Crystal Lacquer 
with the Garnet Mixer. For each of the other colors
I mixed directly onto my Teflon sheet. 
Above I mixed Pink Sapphire and Violet together for the berries on the
branch and used the binder powder.
For the leaves I used Green Mixer and the
chest of the Blue Bird I used Citrine.
Next I stamped two more images and used up 
the remaining mixers on my Teflon Craft Mat. 

Here they are painted.

Here is my Blue Bird turned over so the stamp is more visible.
What looks like two colors of blue is actually just layered color.
The lighter is one coat and the darker is two coats.
Here she is as my focal image.
 I hope you enjoyed my tutorial  - Have a great day!
