1. Cut mixed media cardstock to 10.5cm x 15cm, squeeze a few paints onto your craft mat and start randomly applying them. Giving the paint a quick blast with your heat gun will prevent creating brown hues when applying contrasting colours. Once happy with the coverage, add white paint here and there either with your paint brush or a brayer for contrast.
2. Use your paint brush and play, making simple marks like dots or scallops. You can also do so with markers and crayons on dry paint. Adhere a snippet of ripped book page on top. Use a white chalk marker to draw a simple leafy branch using your non-dominant hand. Keep the lines scribbly and imperfect.
3. Apply Pea Coat paint to the top-right corner, avoiding the leaves and blending it out slightly. Once dry, doodle some small circles with a white pen for contrast. Add more Scarlet and Tangerine Twist paint to the top-left corner to balance the design a bit.
4. Die cut two ‘Happy’ sentiments, one from white and another from black. Layer together and adhere them onto the card, then stamp and add a secondary sentiment below. Trim around the edges and mount the panel onto a white blank. Add Crystal Glaze to the die-cut sentiment to finish.
