Mixed Media Juneteenth

 I have taken a topical approach today with my card dedicated to Juneteenth, the federal holiday in the US to commemorate the release of African American slaves which happened on June 19th, 1865.

I used a mixed media technique and used an image and words from Tamara Laporte's 'Fabulous Faces' pack to create this piece.

I created the background on watercolor paper. I then changed the tones of the background using some white gesso. I decoupaged strips of sentiments torn from the sentiment sheet and then the image that comes printed on tissue paper with some Distress Collage Medium. Finally, I stenciled on the bricks with some texture paste and added the Shine sentiment.  

Head on over to Art Stacks to see all of the gorgeous faces and images in this stunning pack!

Many thanks to Pat Huntoon for having me this past year, it's been awesome! Many thanks to our subscribers and customers who have supported us!

I have created a process video for this thank you card using the Contemporary Vine Floral stamp from the March release.  See video below.
