Antique Collage Medallions Materials and Supplies

These are the materials and supplies I used but these will look amazing with practically anything you have on hand. The plain tissue paper and the matte medium are the key items for the soft, antique look so if that’s important, you’ll definitely want to have that on hand.

HELPFUL LINKS

(When available, I use an affiliate link where I may earn a commission to help you find the products I use and enjoy personally!)

For the base: Mixed Media Paper, 9 x 12, the mixed media sheets make the finished medallions very sturdy and harder to cut so you can use drawing or sketch paper for a lighter finish if you like.

Patterned Scrapbook Paper, 8.5 x 11, in complementary colors/patterns for the front and back. You could also use your orphan backgrounds and paint papers too, just make sure the paper isn’t too heavy as the layers can add up. This one is similar to the package I used: Country Road Paper Pack

Collage Elements: Art Journaling Paper Play Book, Cut and Collage – Vintage Edition book, free sampler sheet or other collage elements you’d like to use

White Gift Tissue

Crepe Paper Streamers for decorative ties or any other ribbons and fibers you’d like to use. I like the vintage look the crepe paper brings to these.

Matte Medium

Acrylic Paint, in a metallic and an accent color – I used silver and dark red on one set and gold and burnt umber on the other set.

Sili-Brush Glue Brush for application, you can use regular brushes or cosmetic wedges as well.

Love Washi? Try These Bits of Washi Goodness!

Washi Tape

Hi There!

How do you feel about surprises? I’m not usually very fond of them myself but this week I had a surprise that really did make my day. The mail carrier brought me a completely unexpected package with the most amazing washi tape! It was a gift from a friend – that is definitely happy mail 💖

Bits of Washi Goodness

So, what’s so special about a few rolls of washi tape? This stuff really brings washi to a whole new level of interesting and beautiful. It’s actually washi paper shapes that are packaged into a roll – mind blown!

Each roll is made up of shaped bits of washi goodness that you pull off individually and use as separate elements in your project. The set I have has four rolls – hearts, leaves, flowers and flower petals – and varies in width depending on the shape.

Like many washi tapes, the shapes have beautiful colors and that lovely translucence that only washi has so you can layer the shapes for a sense of depth. Also like most washi tape, they are only tacky sticky in that they will come back off the paper so you’d want to treat them for permanency like you do regular washi. The roll comes in a sturdy plastic shell that’s easy to open and will hold it for storage. Given how the tape is made, keeping it protected for storage is a good idea.

Overall, I think it’s a supply to try – especially if you love washi and its delicate look. You can find the set I tried here.
