Take Life One Cup at a Time Mixed Media


Hey there Peeps!  It’s Ginny here and I’m dropping in to share a very fun mixed media collage I created using the super cute coffee cup chippies from Gypsy Soul.  My day does not start without a good strong cup of french roast….okay maybe two lol.

After prepping the chippies with Gesso I used a variety of inks and stamps to give each little cup a unique color scheme…then I used the chevron stamp on the front of each one to bring them together as a set.

These Cups have little separate pieces that makes them super easy to alter!!!  I layered these two on Mixed Media Fragments.

I separated this Mixed Media Fragment piece into smaller portions to create fun focal points around the edge of this collage.  Topped off with coordinating flowers.

Two more cups for this arrangement. I added some sparkly gems because  coffee with bling is even more better!!!

Adding shading around the chipboard elements helps to anchor them in the collage and gives and aged effect.

  1. Fabulous piece! I love my coffee, too. In fact, I’m havingmy first cup of the day while looking at this beautiful collage. I really like those chippies and especially like the one that’s in smaller pieces creating focal points. Beautiful flower choices, too. This is just all around stunning! x
