My first post with Made with Love Singapore

Hello friends!

I'm so excited to share with you my first project for my favourite LSS Made with Love. It's the first store I shopped and took classes with in Singapore and have made many friends over the years. I took my first mediums workshop (Tattered Angels) there as well and it's as close as a second home. So it really brings me a lot of joy to be part of this wonderful family.

My first project is a mixed media canvas created using products available from the store at Somerset 313.  I've used a few different types of mediums for my background. To create the soft blue and green highlights, I used Tattered Angels' Chalk Mist and Ranger's Distress Stain.

Instead of using my usual white acrylic modeling paste, I've used Art Anthology's Dimensional Paint with Stone Effects over a stencil. This was followed by random stamping using the Stitched Circle Stamp with Archival Ink and a French Script stamp with Prima Chalk Ink.

A close up of one of my clusters. I diecut some leaves from a piece of Prima Resist Canvas, my title was also cut with a Sizzix die from a piece of glitter cardstock. Under my photo is a piece of vellum with silver polka dots. Tucked within the cluster are also little chipboard hearts from Pink Paislee's Mistables which I colored with Ranger's Distress Stains. Layered at the bottom are pieces of pp I cut out in random sizes from Prima's Princess collection. 

This side of a cluster features a shabby frame which I fussy cut out from a piece of Teresa Collins pp. There's also a Prima resin frame and cardstock doily which I cut using Prima's new metal die. For these two, I lightly distressed them with Distress Stains.

  3. Hi Jelissa, I knew about your blog via “Made with Love” Facebook (I'm a scrapbooker from Singapore!) and was truly captivated by the many mixed media works that you posted. I think your video is also one of the “no frills, complete video” about mixed media. To a newbie like me, I think you readily share your knowledge and I have added myself as a follower to your blog the instant I saw your posts and video. Thanks so much for sharing your works and really looking forward to your every posts!

    1. Hi there! thanks for your kind comments, I hope the videos have helped you along in your exploration. I will be conducting mixed media workshops at MWL in September. If you already have some basic mixed media skills, come along for the classes :)


thank you for dropping a note, it means so much to me!
